Speed issues with Pfsense.
I am using a WatchGuard M400. One of the guys here who has contributed a lot to getting the M400 on Pfsense setup my router and I haven't any issues until now. My M400 has an i5-4570, 8GB of RAM, and a 240GB SSD, is not slouch. lol
I am using 2.4.5-Release-P1.
So I have small business cable 1Gb/50Mbps service. When I plug directly into the modem using my laptop and run speed tests I get 900-950Mbps/54Mbps, I tried different speed tests each time and ended up with the same results.
I installed the speedtest app through command and ran on my Pfsense it seems to max around 650Mbps never going any faster. I initially thought it was a problem with my switches as I have two Cisco 3560's but it's not, as I connected the modem directly to the PFSense.
Previously I had Traffic Shaper working with my old internet. I removed the policy which hasn't helped, so I don't know if traffic shaper is the problem not?
The previous speed I has was 300/30.
Any help would be appreciate it.
Running the speedtest CLI test on pfSense itself is not an accurate test.
What throughput do you see from the laptop connected to the pfSense LAN?
An i5-4570 should have no problems at all passing 1Gbps.
