Hello ...

I just started with tor vpn  and bought a GL-MT300N-V2 open vpn, but a little disappointed with the output speed .

100 mbin out 12 mbit from router .

 

I now the router is week for this but are thet any tweaking for me to do ,maby lower encryption ?

 

Next thing a thinking about , skip the router and use an old laptop for Router vpn ?

 

Inteternet - Old laptop with tor software - usb ethernet card - switch - pc

 

Is this poosebly ?

 

How do a brigde the ethernet card  or use some software to do this ?

 

Speed on laptop = 70 mbit with tor vpn

Yeah, unfortunately, it will be down to the processing power of these units, we do now support GCM based ciphers as mentioned here https://torguard.net/tgspec.php

 

So maybe try AES-128-GCM with SHA1 and see how you go, GCM "should" work a bit better for you - in regards to your laptop, you could setup something like pfsense and use this.
