    I'm trying to overclock my E4200v1 to cope with OpenVPN client CPU intensive encryption.
    Moving from 480MHz to 532MHz bought me another meg b/w, but it looks like 600MHz is impossible to configure (600,300,150)...the set command takes, but the clock does not seem to change (Overview plus performance numbers).
    I'm running Shibby (100 or 104) - is this a firmware limitation?

    My DSL is 25Megs but like I said, I get a max 7Mbps when I fire up the OpenVPN client and since all my traffic is tunneled, it's a serious performance hit.
    I know I can get around by using the VPN client on a PC (I get full 25Meg) but was wondering if I can squeeze some more juice out of the 4200.

    Do not set 600 MHz, it will brick your router. You are lucky with 532 MHz... watch if it is really stable.

    buy a thin client with 800-1000 mhz CPU from ebay - it will cost only a few bucks and will save you the risk of burning your router :)
    i have one running pfsense and can easily handle 60mbps openvpn

    let's all be honest - mips routers openvpn is only good for home remote access and small file transfers and not for full tunneled traffic

    just my 2c :)
