    Guys, I've been using Toastman, Shibby and Victek mods since i got my WRT54GL (btw thank you guys for making a mediocre product (wrt54) relevant for so many years).

    Recently i had to switch back to RAF1.28.121006, because no other mod is capable of doing > 45 Mbps WAN-LAN (i turned off almost everything, but still no dice). While RAF1.28.121006 is a great release (and the fastest I've ever seen on both eth/wifi), its missing two things that i use regularly: WPAD/PAC script and VPN server (i need to be able to connect to my home network from the outside, speed through the VPN is not that important).

    So my question is: Is there a RAF1.28.121006 with VPN modification?

    AFAIK Tomato VPN mods for that router won't get the same WAN-LAN throughput. If you will be accessing your home network remotely, does that mean you have a PC that's always on? If so, are you / could you run your VPN server on that PC?

    No, sadly the only equipment always on is the router and thus why i need a VPN functionality. I was looking at this problem for a few days and the only choice appears to be a new router. I monitor the processes (btw there are no active VPN connections while i test the throughput) and soft_irq takes the crown with > 90%, but still maxes out around 35-40Mbps (barely, because it can't keep that traffic for more than a second).
