    Extremely Slow Speed

    Ok so i just bought TorGuard Today because i saw a video on it on how fast download speeds were compared to NordVpn, which was what i was using at the time and now i just Installed the software and speeds are extremely slow like i usually get 32 mbps without vpn and with vpn i get speeds around 4-6 mbps , someone help . here are my settings btw i have also tried openvpn and openconnect and both are slow for me however openvpn is faster
  2. Was looking to find the best balanced settings for Torguard providing the most security with only a reasonable hit to throughput but could not find much details online. I decided to run some throughput tests on a few combinations of settings to determine the best option. The tests were done using speedtest.net using the same fixed remote server for all tests. In Torguard using the pin feature, I also fixed the VPN server IP for all tests. Throughput obviously varied based on server/ISP load but not by much. Also any test combinations where the numbers seemed to not make sense, I verified by doing the test again. Fixed Variables - Software Version - v3.90.0 - Used OpenVPN. I did test with OpenConnect with not much difference in speed and from the research so far OpenVPN is a more secure reliable option as of now. - Used UDP. TCP was about 40% slower than UDP and for general PC use losing a few packets has almost no noticeable effect. - Port - 1195 (SHA 256) - All other settings excluding the configuration changes listed below in the test were at default values. - Tests were done in order of security level (low to high) starting with Torguard completely disabled. Test Results Encryption Network Settings DL (Mbps) Loss Torguard Disabled Torguard Disabled 193 0% AES-128-CBC Default 164 15% AES-128-GCM Default 166 16% AES-256-CBC Default 160 20% AES-256-GCM Default 155 24% AES-256-CBC Block Outside DNS = On Name Server = None 163 19% AES-256-GCM Block Outside DNS = On Name Server = None 176 10% AES-256-CBC Block Outside DNS = On Name Server = VPN DNS 161 18% AES-256-GCM Block Outside DNS = On Name Server = VPN DNS 175 11% AES-256-CBC Block Outside DNS = On Name Server = Google 163 17% AES-256-GCM Block Outside DNS = On Name Server = Google 163 18% AES-256-CBC Block Outside DNS = Off Name Server = VPN DNS 164 18% AES-256-GCM Block Outside DNS = Off Name Server = VPN DNS 164 18% Summary -Using AES-256 vs AES-128 showed minor drop in throughput. -Adding the extra layers of security under DNS to prevent DNS resolve leaks had no negative impact on throughput. -Surprisingly after multiple repeat tests AES GCM (more secure) seems to provide better results using some of the DNS settings. Again there are obviously alot of other variables that would have impacted some of the results so they cannot be 100% accurate. It is also a limited test only taking 2 servers in to account but it does give a decent general idea as to what the best balanced options would be. Based on this test, the last configuration (in green) is the most secure option with a low amount of loss in throughput. Hope this helps any questions or corrections let me know.
  3. Hi, for some time now I've noticed that the download speed on different servers have decreased dramatically. I can only get relatively decent speeds when using the closest server. Anything further away drops to 10-20% of the achievable speed without using VPN. For testing I have used: https://www.thinkbroadband.com/download These are the settings I'm using: Any suggestions?

  4. Hi all, devs, admins and TG users! I have a question regarding your TG / other VPNs experience when it comes to intercontinental speed. The situation: I stream a lot from USA to central europe (Germany in my case). I found the speed i get from TG standard servers (streaming ip) and other VPN providers quite underwhelming! Mostly I get around 5-8 Mbit. I even subscribed to TG residential IP 10 GBit. It did improve the speed to 12MBit at the max, but sometime I still get around 3-5Mbit. The question(s): What speed do you get intercontinental (USA to central europe in the best case)? Do you know of ways (including other providers) how I can have a faster streaming connection across the pond? Unblocking geo-restriction to access netflix usa is a must! If if helps: I am using an ASUS ac88u with merlin with standard settings to access the usa server. Thank you for any answer/help :-) regards...

    Ridiculously low speeds

    So I have a 110 mbit connection, and the best I'm getting from any server I connect to is 8 mbit. I'm meant to be getting faster than that, right? My torrents download at about 200KB/s. It's un-acc-eptable. Are there some settings I can tweak? Need some help here, TORGuard is basically useless to me at the moment.
  6. Hi Guys I currently reside in Australia and was just wondering if someone can tell me which proxy server would give me the best speed / security. I am currently using Mozilla Firefox, as far as I can tell, I cant see a IP address for Australia that I can use so I am unsure which country would be better to use?
  7. Hi, I bought an Archer C7 v2 router so I could use it as OpenVPN client. That way the best speeds I maanged to get were 8Mbps down / 16 up. After testing a lot of differnet configuration and searching in Google the experience of other users with the same router I came to the conclusion that most routers can't deliver more than 10Mbps when they work as openvpn clients. So does anyone know any openwrt router that can deliver at least 30Mbps download speed when it works as OpenVPN client? thank you
  8. When I wasn't using a VPN or proxy my average dowload speeds on Bittorrent was averaging 1.2MB-1.5MB per second. Since buying the VPN Pro with Torguard I am average 115kb per second, if I am lucky to even get the download to start. I have tried all the "Bittorrent Optimized" servers, what a joke, and followed every setup guide on this site and still no change. Tech support isn't any help. Anyone know and can explain how the hell I fix this before I cancel my subscription. Thanks.
