Hi for those who are using SurfShark, do you notice a speed difference between setting up the VPN on router and using the chrome extension?

when I set up the VPN on my ASUSWRT-Merlin router my speedtest drop to 42Mbps. But if I use only the chrome extension the speedtest is 420Mbps. without VPN the speed is 900Mbps.

Did i set up something wrong?
speeds that you get when setting up your VPN to run via your router would greatly depend more on the hardware encryption capability of your router in comparison to the server of the VPN in this matter.

I'm using a asus ac86u router that comes with an aes-in featured cpu which can provide around 200mbps of download and upload speeds which is on par with the much more expensive ac5300.
