    I've setup an offsite office in Dublin at a hotel. We use a VPN to get onto our network in Canada. When at home the VPN responds like a dream but here (over ADSL) its so slow the connection constantly drops and my users (now breathing down my neck) are unable to use the VPN in any practical way.

    Can anyone suggest why the speed difference (does geographical distance really make such a difference?) and what I can try to boost it?

    I've used "route add" to map static connections once connected to the VPN but it didn't seem to help much.

    Hurry please before I sucuumb to a cardiac arrest....

    It's not geographical distance that is the problem it's the route the data has to take to reach it's final destination that is causing the slowdown. Not all services or networks that your VPN tunnel has to go through will support IPsec and there may also be some issues with the hotels network. Ask their IS person, they may have more insight into your problem.
