Why internet Speed 10Mb/s when it should be more then 50 Mb/s
In my pfsense box, both Ethernet card is 100-1000 Base T
Wan has connection to 1000BASE
media: Ethernet autoselect (1000baseTX <full-duplex>)
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex>)
So if i do a broadband speed test, i should see 40Mb/s download speed
but its only shows 10Mb/s speed
that means data is going out via pfsnese by 10Mb/s
how to set this one to 100Mb/s ??
I guess its trafiq sharping, but is that the way ??
how will i do this on trafiq sharping ? or there is any other options i am missing
I need some more specifics.
When you look at Status-> interfaces what do you get for Media.
Example: Media 100baseTX <full-duplex>Also do another speed test at speedtest.net and report your upload and download speeds. Also consider any traffic you are consuming with other applications such as servers, bit-torrent, or anything else that uses bandwidth while you are testing.</full-duplex>
Sorry due to night ,i did not able to reply.
WAN interface (re0)
MAC address 00:06:4f:6a:8a:fc
IP address 192.168.88.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.192
ISP DNS servers xx.xx.xx.x
Media 1000baseTX <full-duplex>In/out packets 100176/105082 (39.96 MB/14.75 MB)
In/out errors 0/0
LAN interface (xl0)
MAC address 00:01:02:dc:87:b3
IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.1
Subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Media 100baseTX <full-duplex>In/out packets 351339/136575 (31.98 MB/57.39 MB)
In/out errors 0/0
So as you can see, i got 100BAse Media.
if i connect a pc with the ISP modem directly, then i Speed test will show report of 33Mb/s download
But if i connect pc behind this pfsense router then i get maximum of 10Mb/s download speed
its always, and our company does not allow any bit torrent or highly bandwidth consuming application. inface if i look at bandwidthd, yesterday our total bandwidth out was 100MB, and may be it will go higher to 500Mb which is a nothing for internet users
Please have a look at attached picture ,
Is this ADSL? Does your ISP require a different MTU setting.
Also some NIC drivers act weird, try disabling hardware checksum offloading web GUI: System -> Advanced, scroll down to Hardware Options and check the box Disable Hardware Checksum Offloading)
I think the problem is Ethernet card of pfsense(real tek) and the router port.
Today i added another router. and from internal pc i can get 34 M/b speed!!
so it guess there is problem between duplexing …..
