Hi!

 

I recently installed an ER605 router at the office. Replaced my current modem with it, everything is working fine. Getting around 900mbps, which is my connection speed.

 

I did setup an L2TP VPN to access the network from home. At first I got speeds around 40mbps, which is in specs. I tried to change the setting to unencrypted, but I only got a bit of improvement, around 120mbps. It's way slower than the router specs. I've got Gigabit internet speeds on both sides.

 

Is there any way I could improve those speeds?

To get 1G on UP and Down over a VPN... you will need a device with more horsepower.  

 

What you are getting is pretty dang good.

  @KimcheeGUN I guess, but in the ER605 specs it says that Unencrypted L2TP can reach 864.65 Mbps, that's why I'm wondering.

Not sure how you run the speed test but you may confirm it is 120 "MBps" or 120 "Mbps".

  @Somnus Yeah, I am absolutely sure that I'm getting 120 megabits, not megabytes.

  @Remy4409 Device's performance of "VPN to Internet", is different with performance “client to site” or “site to site” .In general, the previous is lower
