C6300 and NordVPN

Hello,

 

I'm inexpert enough not to know exaclty whyic "Model" to enter into the imperative field (I just think of me as having a C6300) WiFi router I picked up new in Dec '16.

 

I use NordVPN on my Windows 10  (64 bit) Pro and asked their (NordVPN) support folks if there were any tweaks available to get speedier throughputs. (I use Xfinity here with a purchased understanding of 200 mbs). They suggested that I try any one of the following. Why don't I just quote the reply I got: "Please search for a setting called "VPN passthrough" or "IPsec passthrogh" and enable it if it is present. Also, try disabling IPv6, disabling DDNS and also try lowering the setting of the router's firewall." So drawing on my vast inexpertness, I thought I pass this bit of wishful thinking to to this board in hope someone out there knows what they're talking about and can help with steps to take.

 

Thanks.
