    So I've managed to setup my WRT54GS v4 with Witopia's VPN service and it's working smoothly.. Only thing I noticed was the fact that when I use the OpenVPN software client on my windows laptop along with the connection to my ISP I get much higher speeds to the same server compared to using OpenVPN on my linksys router (software VPN client on laptop obviously disabled)..

    My Guess is that the laptop is able to process the VPN faster as it's a much power unit then the Linksys router!!!!!

    IF so how much of difference would it make if i upgrade to new more powerful routers?
