I have never used a VPN before but I took the plunge today and signed up with NordVPN. I have installed and tried 2 UK servers on the Asus router's VPNClient page. Both are working but I have at least 2 issues ... maybe more to come.
1.) My usual 108 mbps has dropped to around 20 mbps. I was expecting some slow down but that is ridiculous! Is that usual?
2.) I can no longer access my Superhub SH2AC, which is in modem mode, using 192.168.100.1 Is this usual and is there a workaround other than turning off the VPN each time I need access?
I’m in the same boat with expressvpn, same Asus router (68u with Merlin CFW) and downloads are 20Mb or less. (Pain in the [REMOVED] watching 4K Canadian Netflix on Apple TV) I’m guessing it’s due to the way the router handles the vpn connection, around 200Mb down when using the windows/iPhone app. Of course you Carnot access your modem mode router your on a public paid vpn... if you create your own private vpn with in the router YES that will work.
