Her there base boy thanks for the reply it worked and I am up and running I thought I had bricked the router. Just moved from a Asus n66u to R7000 and was hoping to get past 20mbps thinking it was a CPU bottleneck buy still stuck on 20mbps anyone out there getting past this speed with IP vanish VPN

Policy based routing and

Policy based routing and tomato on R7000

I just switched from DD-WRT to tomato. Mainly because I wanted to try it but I was getting the reboots with DD-WRT that annoyed me.

It works and I was able to get it to work with PIA VPN without a hitch. The VPN seems faster, however I can't get policy based routing to work. With the VPN on my VoIP phone won't work. Without policy based routing or a way to exempt my phone I will have to go back. DD-WRT has a nice section for policy based routing that made it a snap.

I tried this to get it working without success ( it seems to work for a while after the router reboots. )
Administration > Scripts > WAN Up
ip route add default table 100 via x.x.x.x
ip rule add fwmark 1 table 100
ip route flush cache
iptables -t mangle -I PREROUTING -i br0 -s 192.168.x.x/32 -j MARK --set-mark 1

x.x.x.x = ISP gateway
192.168.x.x/32 = IP I don't want to use the VPN

Used this guide to get VPN working with PIA
