Had anyone that's using privatvpn seem a dramatic decrease in connection speed lately? My download speed is 55mbps without being connected to vpn and only 2.75mbps when connected. I used to have close to full speed.

Depends on location you use and time if the day. I got 6.xx speed yesterday through Toronto. What location do you use ?

I used to get get much higher speeds from Sweden. I wonder if it's a setting on my pc?

From my experience it's times of the day. Peak periods of traffic are always slower. They have a different time zone so sometimes switching to something that's a totally different time zone will get you faster speeds. Also there is a bunch of Sweden locations now so try another if that is your country of choice.


Test it out now:

www.speedtest.net .


Post up the speed result. I could do the same and we can compare.

So I've confirmed that it's a setting on my htpc. I connected to a sweedish server on my phone and got much faster speedtest results.




The top 2 results are while connected to vpn.


Here is speedtest while connected to vpn on my htpc. I only got 2.77mbps download.



I didn't take a pic of speedtest without being connected to vpn but download speeds are about 55mbps download.


So the bottleneck is obviously somewhere on my htpc. Any idea what Setting I need change on my htpc?

So I setup the vpn as L2TP just using the windows vpn setup and speeds are back to normal. Now I'm getting 31 Mbps download and 10 Mbps upload.




I still want to figure out what started causing the bottleneck on the privatvpn client which uses openvpn.

I was recently having problems also. My speeds weren't like usual and I was getting constant disconnects. Then come to find out that I couldn't access the Privatevpn web page any more.


Turns out I was having problems with the routing tables or something. I rebooted my cable modem and it picked up a new IP address, everything has been working fine since.
