Bandwidth test = fine, browsing = impossible
I have pfSense in both physical and virtualized. Physical has worked flawlessly for years but I want more time on our UPS so moving it into the virtualized domain would be a good idea.
I have hyper-v 2012 and it has been nightmares all around (justifiably so) until I received a pre-built VHD(X) for it. Boots up and everything is perfect, the interface is full and snappy. I add the proper ISP and it automatically picks up the DHCP (simple cable modem, no PPPoE or MAC spoofing needed). I try to browse a web page and it is incredibly slow and only loads a portion before timing out. I run a bandwidth test and after it loads, I get the full 10mbps down and 0.5mbps up.
So it seems like the bandwidth is not an issue, the LAN has no issues…..it seems like it is just the routing. I have defaulted everything with no firewall rules apart from allowing everything on the outbound interface.
I have assigned it 2 cores of the Xeon L5520 and they aren't spiking. I have assigned 512mb RAM but will see about expanding it a bit later today even though an insignificant portion has been used. The VM does have the integration services added as well as it is using the 10gb adapters.
I am also using an internal DHCP (not pfSense's) as well as an internal DNS (not pfSense's)
Any help would be appreciated!
I should note that this is 2.1 because of RADIUS/IPSec
