comment How secure is BitLocker without a TPM, using SED?
That confirms that the startup key on USB drive is at least protected with the password.

comment How to fix the slow DNS lookup and long time in “connecting”? win8.1 and chrome
Same network, same ISP and VPN. One is even on WiFi where as the affected machine is wired. Something changed on that machine.

I use a VPN most of the time (tried a few, e.g. Mullvad and iVPN) and they are at times incredibly slow and at others okay. The slow DNS lookup and connecting issue persists. It's only one machine though, other Windows PCs are fine both with and without the VPN.

Tried multiple DNS services, including Google and OpenDNS. It's not specifically a DNS problem, because even once the server IP is know it takes an equally long time to create the initial connection. It's like new connections are very slow... and UDP.

I tried a few different DNS servers. Generally ping times are in the 50-150ms range, it's just making actual DNS queries and then connecting to web sites that takes a long time.

Maybe a little better with Firefox, hard to say. Safe mode makes no difference.

I can confirm that it isn't related to uTorrent. Happens for me with qBittorrent or no torrent client at all.

I started the bounty. I've tried all that stuff, none of it helps.

comment Bitlocker, eDrive and cloning
I'm actually thinking that sedutil might be easier than Bitlocker, which appears to be a giant pain in the arse. github.com/Drive-Trust-Alliance/sedutil/wiki/…

It would be nice to get transparent performance, otherwise Veracrypt is an option.

I have this same issue when using a VPN. It's fine on other machines, and fine without the VPN. Connect to the VPN and the symptoms you describe appear. I have yet to find a solution, did you? I think it might be related to the way Windows routes packets to hosts. It tries one interface first, and if that times out tries another. Thus the initial connection takes ages, times out and then works quickly as Windows knows to route to the correct interface.

This doesn't seem to have fixed the problem.

Thanks harrymc, I did try that. My DHCP range is 100-150, and I allocated 99 to the phone.

I did the update, it still doesn't work.

I'm just a little nervous about using beta firmware. Is there a way to find a recent stable release? The FTP site doesn't seem to give any hints. I require stability.
