I need help on a new tower. I have a old tower using a 532 current firmware 2.8 upgradeable to 2.9 the version on winbox shows 2.9.46
I have it connected with an Ethernet cable running down the tower to a switch and back up the tower to a RB411a with an XR9 card in it. it's version is 3.22 on winbox
the model is 411a and the firmware is 2.16 upgradable to 2.20
the problem is the speed on Ethernet. I hooked my laptop up to the switch and ran bandwidth test to each RB. to the 411 I get about 1 mb up and down to the 532 I get less than 1 mb down and 4mb or higher up. I have both set to 100 full duplex
In the shop I have another RB411a setup and i get 75 mb up and 35 down that is much better than the other one in use. both were bought at same time and have never been used.
it looks like I will have to climb the tower and replace the RB411 box. but I still have the rb532 not running fast on tx.
what can I do?
would upgrading the software on the 532 help it?
