I very recently (circa 2 weeks) discovered Tomato and very glad I am indeed! I went out and purchased a Asus RT3200 and within the hour had it setup and running with the latest Tomato by Shibby (VPN) build via IPVanish.
I have an issue that I'm hoping someone can help me with. I have a 150mbps download and 10mbps upload speed cable line via VirginMedia, I can always reach those speeds and above when not using the VPN option on the router but as soon as I enable the VPN option and connect via IPVanish I get no more than 30mbps download (If I'm lucky) and can occasionally get 10mbps upload speeds.
I have tested this via wireless and wired connections with the same results.
I have changed servers to the closest servers to me with no change.
I have changed the TCP\UDP protocols and port numbers with no change.
Is this normal behavior given that I'm using one the the fastest VPN providers? If I'm not going to reach the speed that I pay for should I just downgrade my VirginMedia line?
Should I switch to another VPN provider?
Or are there some more configuration changes that I need to make?
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. :)
