Slow download/upload speed over VPN

Doing speed tests from speakeasy.net without going through the VPN Client I get roughly 31000kbps / 3500 kbps down/up. VPN connected I roughly get 1500kbps / 1000 kbps. Any ideas why download speeds dramatically drops? I know encryption taxes a part on overhead and I am using 3DES, but ~95% decrease?!? Any thoughts?!?

IP fragmentation, if happening, can hit performance. Encryption too, if done in software.

Re: Slow download/upload speed over VPN

When you connect via VPN, you will be using the internet gateway at the VPN location to reach speakeasy.net. Does that location have a T1 to the internet?
