openvpn server speed on Archer C1200

 Share

I'm running a OpenVPN server (udp) in my Archer C1200 and I never get more than 8Mbps... Is it normal for this router? Or are there some settings I sould tweak?

I've seen people on the internet saying they get 80Mbps with this router, or the older C7. I have a 100/100 connection on the server and 100/50 on the client, both through ethernet cable.

What services to be exact? I tried disabling QoS and I think it imporeves like 1 Mbps.. I tried enabling Nat Boost, made nodifference. Nat Boost can't be enabled at the same time as QoS.

I think this router has a 900Mhz CPU, is it actually good enough or people may be wrong when they say they have all that speed?

Still no fix..

I can get almost 40Mbps with the PPTP server, isn't that too big of a difference? But with PPTP I loose internet on the client before 1 minute of usage.

Anyone has any ideas?

I very much doubt people are getting that good a speed as my C7 maxes out the CPU just on WiFi traffic alone.

 

Getting 80Mbit out of a VPN uses a lot of CPU power if you are actually using a VPN securely.

Router:  Quotom-Q555G6-S05 running pfSense WiFi: Zyxel NWA210AX (~940Mbit peak)

Switches: Netgear MS510TXUP, Netgear MS510TXPP, Netgear GS110EMX
ISPs: Zen VDSL (~74Mbit) + VOXI 4G [Vodafone] (~120Mbit) + Three 5G (~500Mbit average)

Could you test your openvpn?

Are you on stock or OpenWRT?

I'm on OpenWRT so I can have a summary of all WiFi clients connected for security and performance monitoring.

If I get the chance I will test the performance of OpenVPN as you do have me curious now.

Stock, there is no OpenWRT for C1200.

I guess its Broadcom based then, hard to say how the performance compares.

Seems your clock is 900Mhz vs the C7 at 720Mhz, plus no idea if they have the same(or any, I think WPA is done on the WiFi hardware) AES acceleration so might not be the best comparison.

 

Will probably test it anyway though as it might give us a rough baseline for comparison.

So, have you tested it already and killed that curiosity?

Its a little more tricky than I planned as the OpenVPN UI on OpenWRT is utter garbage.

So you get really low speed or you can't even run it?

I can't see where you put in the certificates to even try it.  I don't really want to fiddle with it too much in case I mess up the configuration.
