Hey, nice tutorial. I´ve already set it up myself, but i have a internet connection drop of ~600Mbit recently… do you think that is correlated to the AdGuard Addon and did you check with your system as well? I´m doing speed tests every hour and this drop is huge…

To troubleshoot the issue, here are some steps you can take:

Disable AdGuard: Temporarily disable the AdGuard from your network and run speed tests to see if your internet connection improves. If it does, then it’s possible that AdGuard is causing the issue.

Check your internet connection without AdGuard: Try accessing websites and running speed tests with AdGuard disabled. If your connection is still slow, the issue may be unrelated to AdGuard.

Review your network setup: Check your router, modem, and any other network equipment for issues. Make sure there are no loose cables, and consider restarting your modem and router.

Run speed tests at different times: Network congestion can affect your internet speed, and it may vary throughout the day. Try running speed tests at different times to see if the drop in speed is consistent.

Contact your ISP: If the speed drop persists, reach out to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and inquire about any known issues in your area or potential problems with your connection.

Adjust AdGuard settings: If you suspect AdGuard is causing the issue, you can try adjusting its settings to see if it improves the situation. For example, you can whitelist certain websites or disable specific filters to see if that makes a difference.

To rule out the possibility of throttling, you can try the following:

Run speed tests at different times: Conduct speed tests at various times of the day and night to see if there’s a consistent pattern of slower speeds during specific hours. This might help you identify whether your ISP is applying any restrictions during peak usage times.

Use different speed test servers: Speed test results can vary depending on the server you use for testing. Try different speed test servers in various locations to see if the results differ significantly. Sometimes, a specific server may be experiencing congestion or other issues.

Check for other network activity: Make sure there are no other devices or applications on your network consuming a significant amount of bandwidth during your speed tests. Background downloads, streaming, or other activities can impact the results.

Contact your ISP: If you suspect your ISP is throttling your connection or if you consistently experience significantly lower speeds than what you’re paying for, it’s a good idea to contact your ISP’s customer support. They can provide insights into your specific connection and any potential issues.
