Massive slowdown after upgrading to routeros 6.48.2

Fri Apr 23, 2021 3:03 am

Hi all,

When I upgraded to routeros 6.48.2, I began experiencing massive slowdowns. I initially thought the problem was only with the wireless connection of the router but the entire router was impacted. I have a 1GBPS connection from my ISP and was getting only 90MBPS. This was with a desktop connected directly to the LAN interface of the router.

I rolled back via the downgrade command and the router is back to running normally.
However, the version still shows 6.48.2 so I do not know what got downgraded but the router is back to normal.
routeros 6.48.2
board-name: hAP ac
model: RouterBOARD 962UiGS-5HacT2HnT

I do not know what is happening and am happy to submit diagnostic information.

If you're getting limited to 90 Mbps, check the "link rate" of your WAN connection. If it's 100 Mbps, then there's your problem.

Hi,
I went to /interface ethernet
I have a pppoe interface and the ISP's DSL modem router which is running in bridge mode is connected to ether1.
I ran the monitor and get the following output.

[pranav1@ConShield] /interface ethernet> monitor ether1
name: ether1
status: link-ok
auto-negotiation: done
rate: 1Gbps
full-duplex: yes
tx-flow-control: no
rx-flow-control: no
advertising: 10M-half,10M-full,100M-half,100M-full,1000M-half,
1000M-full
link-partner-advertising: 10M-half,10M-full,100M-half,100M-full,1000M-full

If I am reading the above correctly, the port is running at 1GBPS.

I always restart my equipment twice after a upgrade. First ROS then firmware. I think that in many cases a second restart solves many issues. So perhaps the reboot solved the issue?

Hi,

The second reboot may well have solved the wireless issue.

The slowdown however has an interesting solution. The problem was with my desktop from where I was conducting the speed test. Its LAN interface was flaky. The router's reboot was fixing the problem because the desktop would reconnect to the lan at a full 1GBPS.
The interface was unable to negotiate a higher load so the connection would downgrade to 100MBPS.

I have changed the LAN cable and things appear to be stable.

Hi all,
I have upgraded the router.
board-name: hAP ac^2
model: RBD52G-5HacD2HnD
serial-number: C6140DDD9D8F
firmware-type: ipq4000L
factory-firmware: 6.44
current-firmware: 6.48.2
upgrade-firmware: 6.48.2

I am attaching the configuration of the new router. The speed issues persist.

Fast track is active.
[admin@ConShield] /ip settings> print
ip-forward: yes
send-redirects: yes
accept-source-route: no
accept-redirects: no
secure-redirects: yes
rp-filter: no
tcp-syncookies: no
max-neighbor-entries: 8192
arp-timeout: 30s
icmp-rate-limit: 10

route-cache: yes
allow-fast-path: yes
ipv4-fast-path-active: no
ipv4-fast-path-packets: 0
ipv4-fast-path-bytes: 0
ipv4-fasttrack-active: yes
ipv4-fasttrack-packets: 45698507
ipv4-fasttrack-bytes: 47714627084

I am getting about 830MBPS down and approximately 800 MBPS up though these readings vary.
