(SOLVED) torguard client (400 Mb down) vs pfsense firewall (70 Mb down)

Question

CyberWar

Hopefully someone out there can help me figure this out. When I use the Windows torguard client on my desktop or laptop I have no problems getting over 400Mb download. The issue is when I configure a firewall, pfsense or untangle, I only average 70 Mb down. I have attached a screenshot of my speedtest connected to the Frankfurt server using the Windows torguard client.

Torguard client configured with:

Tunnel type: OpenVpn
Protocol: UDP
Cipher: AES-256-GCM
HMAC: SHA256

The firewall I'm testing is not virtualized, it's an old dell optiplex with an i5 and 8 GB of ram. I'm sure that's enough to handle the VPN.

Update:

I added this to the custom options on my pfsense and got the speed up to 200Mb, just need another 200 to match the TG client.

Another update:

I power cycled the modem and firewall and now I'm consistently getting over 400Mb down. I'm happy now.
