So I have a funny problem. I have a couple wireless hops, and a flat network. I do a speed test across both wireless hops and get nice speeds. I test with 10Mbit UL and unlimited download, and get around 70 mbit. to the far location. I Like this!
However, the actual throughput I get is around 7-10 mbit, sometimes a bit higher. So I am confused as to why the speed difference is so drastic? I understand that when using a RB to do the test that uses the CPU, but this one I cannot figure out.
at the mid point between the two wireless hops I get full speed as expected in test and real throughput. Below is the se tup
CRS125 - SXT5AC ~ SXT5AC - RB2011 - DynaDish ~ RB921 Netmetal - RB2011 Tested to wired or wireless device. Internet speeds from ISP are 120 mbit
I upgraded the hardware to get a better link, and the weird part is the bandwidth test on router OS says nice high speeds but real data is horribly slow.
The network is flat, and there is no QoS rules, just NAT on the CRS 125.
