Hy Guys!

I use OpenVPN server integrated to ASUS RT-N65U wireless home router, the server works with these parameters:
1) Encapsulation Layer - L3 TUN
2) Protocol TCP
3) Enabled LZO for Data Compression

My client is the latest official 64-bit OpenVPN client (v. 2.3.13-I001) that creates virtual TAP adapter V9 in Windows 7 x64 OS
(no matter what version of windows or OpenVPN client I use, the result is always the same)

And the issue is that I have only 10 mbps.

Please explain what do I wrong

You're doing nothing wrong, that's literally the limitation of the TAP adapter. Until it gets updated and is able to handle speed, there isn't anything to be done.

Excuse me, I just want to clarify - no matter what version or configuration of OpenVPN server, if I use windows client I will always have only 10 mbps? :)

Exactly. It is purely a developer issue, not a user one. There isn't anything you can do short of trying another VPN.

Thank you for bitter truth, maybe you know would this limitation occur if I migrate to linux OpenVPN client? Another words, this limitation concern only for windows or for all operating systems?

You should be able to achieve higher speeds in Linux, even though you may not achieve top speeds. This is basically a flaw of OpenVPN overall, but it is even worse in Windows.

Hopefully they fix this in future versions.
