LAN FAST, PPPOE SERVER SLOW



  • If I connect my PC to the lan of PF i get very good speed, if i connect via pppoe server the spped is approx half, consistently.  Why is it so?  I have also tested using PF for LB then connecting Mikrotik to PF's LAN, same result, what is it about PPPOE that causes the speed to slow?

    That probably depends on what/how you are testing. PPPoE will add a bit of overhead, both in terms of CPU usage on the router and in terms of adding data to every packet. Though it shouldn't cut it by half I wouldn't think.
