Download drastically dropped in simple home NAT

Thu Aug 04, 2011 6:26 pm

Hello,
I've recently purchased a rb433 and configured it to masquerade to ether2 (WAN). I have a PC on ether1 (192.168.1.0/24). Everything is basically working, but my dl speed dropped from 20 mbit to ~1 mbit. When I connect my PC directly to the modem it's back to normal.
My firewall settings are very simple:
 0   chain=input action=accept connection-state=established in-interface=ether2 
 1   chain=input action=accept connection-state=related in-interface=ether2 
 2   chain=input action=drop in-interface=ether2 
RouterOS version 4.14.
Where the problem lies? How can I debug it?
I checked link quality with pingtest.com and got grade A, no packet loss.

Thanks

The input chain is for connections destined to the router.
The forward chain is for connections through the router

Please post your NAT configuration

I though it might be relevant to bandwidth anyway if messed up.
Please post your NAT configuration
 0   chain=srcnat action=masquerade out-interface=ether2

Try upgrading to the latest version 5.6. Also you can send supout.rif file from this router to support@mikrotik.com and we will examine your configuration. There are many factors that could cause such problem.

I upgraded to 5.6 and it's still slow. I also sent you the supout file.

1. Have you set the same MAC address on ether2 as on your computer? Do you receive the same IP address via DHCP? Maybe it's a problem with provider?
2. What is the CPU load? Does profiler show anything interesting?

It's not, I have added ether2 MAC to ISP's list of authorized computers. I also called them about this and they said that everything looks ok.
2. What is the CPU load? Does profiler show anything interesting?
CPU load is up to 3% during speedtest, profiler shows >95% idle.

The problem turned out to be.. bad cable. Shame on me. Now it works perfectly.
