So, I got HideMyAss for a month. I think I will keep it IF I can get it working fast enough. Right now, it is sluggish as hell. I am using an IP in The Philippines, but browsing is so sluggish and my torrent client , while operating faster than before, still caps out at about 300 (compared to the 6.1k it downloads at from the likes of Steam).
I looked on the HideMyAss forums, and apparently I need to flash my firmware of my router, which is a Hitron CDE-30364. However, I can't find the router on any lists of routers that are compatible with the DD-WRT firmware. Most reports of HIdeMyAss say that it runs smoothly and quickly, so is my router the problem? Ever since I got this connection with Mangrove, I have been throttled to hell and i just want to get my original download speeds back while having the benefit of using HMA to access stuff like Hulu (which works with HMA).
I might also add that I see another connection at the top of my wireless connection list in Win 7 called HMAVPN, but I can't connect to it no matter what I do. Also, speedtest.com rates my D/L speed at about 1mb, whereas my connection should be 20mb.
Thanks in advance for any advice...
