Re: Lan Traffic Is Lower then Wan traffic

PPPoE overhead takes about 13 to 15% of your overall bandwidth. So you are well within the expected range.
Thanks for the reply. is there any way to save those 13 to 15% bandwidth?
I have exactly same issue, were you able to resolve the problem and what was the fix?
