Hello, I saw a post in the netgear community that there was supposed to be an update to the VPN Client in March that would upgrade the current VPN Client to a hybrid client. The firmware update that came out in March was only a bug update. Is there an ETA on when the hybrid client will be released and what VPN providers will be able to be used?
I am asking this because I just recently purchased this router and my home internet speeds are around 300 Megs for download. When I start the VPN client using HMA my download speed drops to around 10 Megs. I have tested the speeds using both the router client and the downloadable client from HMA.This is a HUGE speed loss and turns this "gaming" router into a worthless router for me. I have contacted HMA and they take no blame or responsibility, nor will they help me try to fix the problem because they say it must be the router that is limiting my bandwidth because there is nothing wrong on their end (even though they offered me absolutely no troubleshooting support except to change to different countries). After their lack of help and terrible support team I asked for a refund and will never do business with them again. I am hoping that you can come up with better options for providers, otherwise the client on this router is absolutely useless and the client is the only reason I purchased this particular router.
Here is the link to the netgear community article where the update was mentioned:
