Slow speeds with vpn hfc vr1600v

Level 3
Hey guys. Anyone have issues with vpn speeds when accessing cdns using the tplink Archer vr1600v?

I have tried pia, Nord, express, and surfshark all with the same issue.
My speeds are perfect without vpn. Close to 95megabit so I'm not complaining about that. However when I turn vpn on speeds are terrible.

To be sure it wasn't one vpn provider. I tried several all with the same issue. If I try from a friend's ISP it all works perfectly fine.

I have tried all the ports and protocols types available and can't resolve the issue.

Anyone else experience this?

The only thing I can think of now is that it's the modem possible not handling vpn traffic?

Hey there - having exactly the same issue. Currently use SurfShark VPN. 

Any advice would be really great, as I'm a bit at a loss on what to do from here.



Hi @Spastro & @5819286,


Test the speed of the service without VPN, if the speed is passing there should be no issue on the service network/TPG. If you're having speed issues using VPN, we recommend to contact your VPN support for support to avoid mistroubleshooting.
