My internet speed is extremely slow

  • Hello
    I 've come across recently on PfSense , and must say that this has me very much at the beginning .
    Installation on a rCF card was quite simple and the basic configuration was pretty easy I must say.
    So far I have made ​​only the basic configuration . DHCP server ( IP assignment in LAN and WLAN )

    But still I have a problem where I get stuck .
    At once my PfSense router system
    Alix board
    4GB CF card ( boot medium with nano BSD Pfense )
    CPU 512MHz
    512MB RAM
    2x 10/100Mb LAN
    300mb Wlan card internally Installed
    In hailstones to a cable modem Germany , the router also has a DHCP connection to the modem.

    My problem:
    Quite simply, my internet speed is extremely slow.
    I have iene 32Mb line of KabelDeutshland ,
    Do I use my burlap router I get about 27Mb in PfSense router I get just only 2Mb in the download.
    during the upload it looks similar.

    Manager, I think about it only very little on the internet which could bring me there on.
    Does anyone have an idea what could be there.

    With speeds that slow the first thing I would look for is a speed or duplex mismatch on one of the interfaces.


  • Where can get software or hardware error?
    Pfsense is with me if still available in a standard configuration.
    But what I noticed is that the WAN port interface problems made ​​to get an ip, though I always had a Switsch switch between, Sons and daughters cable connection not funkionierte with anhieb only when a new configuration of the wan interfaces.
    On my Alix 2d2 board with wlan ..

    Check the Status: Interfaces: page for errors on any interface. If you do have a duplex mismatch it will show there.

    Some of what you are saying is not translating well.  ;) You may get better help in the German subforum.
