How to avoid ISP throttling

Post by AntiThrottle » Thu Jan 22, 2015 2:01 pm

Hi guys,
Ive used SoftEther since Oct 2014. I manage to get connected to a VPN server and running annonymously without any throttling from my ISP. I do a lot of torrent downloads. But as of today,my connection speed are much slower than before.(got the feeling that im being throttled). So when i run a dns leak test from dnsleaktest.com,sure enough i found out that indeed my test came out with my ISP's server instead of the VPN server that im connected to.Can anyone help me on how to avoid this from happening? Appreciate the help guys.

Is it because of my config or is it from the SoftEther VPN side?

For your wireless adapter set up DNS address from obtain automatically to manually 8.8.8.8 address.

Can you print your routing table (route print -4)?

Thank u Nemesiz for being such a big help in trying to help me out with my problem. Really appreciate it.I have finally found the root of the problem.My dns was leaked not because of the software but merely bcz of the hardware from my new TP-Link Wireless N Adapter TL-WN821N that i just bought.Previously i was using a DLink Wireless G Adapter DW110 and everything was fine until i upgraded.So now whenever i use the new wireless N adapter i would just have to manually key in a new dns address which is 10.211.254.254 and leak no more :-)

The best way to avoid ISP bandwidth limit traffic - redirect your internet using a VPN. When using a VPN, data packets are a type of encryption and tracking according to the VPN service provider. Therefore, the ISP can not determine which site to visit, and therefore can not apply bandwidth limitations.

1- Get a reliable service VPN, which have multiple servers globally
2- Make sure about its compatibility with other OpenVPN, PPTP and L2TP protocols
3- Connect to the VPN-server using the supplied software.
4- Look at the sites where As before low speed, you will notice a significant improvement in transmission and download speed.
