Rather than the MPLS example can you try using NO bridging at all and just IP routes? If that gives you single stream TCP above 30mbit then you are hitting the bridging limits

Re: IMPORTANT! IPv6 guideline needed!

Hmmmm, Thats a tricky setup to do, There is no NAT in IPv6 so your DSL lines are useless. You could get a /48 from a tunnel broker and use that depending on where you are in the world and how close to HE's PoP. If I were you I would stick a 6to4 tunnel on your edge router and hand out /64's from tha...

Re: IMPORTANT! IPv6 guideline needed!

Also do you have your own IP allocation from an RIR? If so it's easy to get your own v6 allocation

With IPv6 your best to start at the edge where you hook upto your upstream provider and work back, do you have a bgp interconnect with them? Is it just static routes etc etc??

DHCPv6-PD is prefix delegation. If you have MT as the CPE then you have it a bit easier than those that dont.
