Multi Wan - Load Balancing Not Combining on Speedtest.net



  • Hi all

    I have been running PFSense for quite a while now, I was setup with 2 WAN connections (PPPOE and Static IP).

    PPPOE - 50 / 8
    Static - 50 / 12

    All configurations have been made as per the documentation and for a year or more now, speedtest,net etc have been reporting 100 / 20 fairly steadily.

    Since a couple of months ago, I have only started seeing 50Mbit on the downstream speed test, but 20 up.
    So it appears that the downstream isn't balancing like it was before, but the upstream is…

    If I disable the LAN outbound load balancing rule, It observes the first failover rule and I get the correct single connection speed.  THen I disable this first failover rule so it his the third.  Again, I get the correct speed from ISP 2........

    This means each ISP connection is working at the correct speed, but for some reason my downstream speedtest isn't combining...

    Any ideas?  I have deleted all Multi Wan config and recreated but its still the same.

    Any help is appreciated thanks!

    P.S I am running: (Upgraded to dev release as I read somewhere that this fixed someone else's issue, didn't for me...)

  • ok I just deleted some packet shaping config that I had created and its back to normal!!!!

    cheers
