Re: Upload Speed Very Low through the Router

same problem.

I have an RB750 with all-default configuration (MT was hard reset)

Just configured interface addresses, DNS, DHCP, SNTP, Route. All other config are default (firewall)

MT is connected to a 30/30 MBPS symetrical line. Download is only 20mbps and upload 3 ~ 5 mbps only.
