When you run a bandwidth speed tests you are causing the CPU on both sides of the link to max out the most data out of that link which in returns takes up most of your CPU resources.

What do you mean by "just routing"? Disabling WDS and just adding "Routes" in the route list?
You got it! If you use EoIP or WDS it just adds packet overhead and can cause your like to be alot slower then needed. By removing all the possible tunnels, it will also mean less things to go wrong.

Why are you using WDS for a backhaul link? While WDS is very effective in certain situations its not designed to be used in long range links.

Have you tried a PTP setup instead and measured the results?
When you say PTP setup you talking router or what?

Re: RouterOs and Radius Manager on Single Machine

If you have 8 ether ports in the machine, you can assign each to which ever partition/VM that you wish? Can you assign CPU affinity, etc also?
Well you can assign nics to the VM machine you want. When it comes to the CPU affinity you are going to set that in windows on the VM software.

If you want you can also mangle the packets between the three isp's by using the Nth rule under mangle. Just mark the packets 1,2,3 and then route them.

This might be a problem with all the gateway's having the same gateway.

Can you post /export of your vpn setup including routes for it. That way we can see where you might of missed. Suggestions: 1) Check to make sure ip address 10.10.10.x is added to interface for outgoing on both sides. 2) Check your routes. 3) Turn on proxy-arp on the interface you are trying to reach.
