How can I speed up my NordVPN connection?:
Encrypting your entire network through NordVPN requires considerable processing power and bandwidth. This is why you may notice speeds that are lower than your normal ISP speeds. Although the connection may be a little slower you should be comforted in knowing it is also fully encrypted through a secure VPN connection. There are still several ways that you may be able to improve slow NordVPN connection speeds on your router.
- Try out alternate server locations listed in your .ovpn files folder.
- To change NordVPN server locations you will need to change the server as well as the TLS-Auth Key, and Certificate Authority.
- In DD-WRT you can find the Tunnel Protocol and Port settings on the Services > VPN page.
- In Tomato you can find the Protocol and Port settings on the VPN Tunneling > OpenVPN Client > Basic page.
