I normally use MT software on a PC to make a router.
Recently we purchased an RB153. It is the one with 5 Ethernet ports and 3 mini-PCI slots.
I configured it as a hotspot. I am not using radios in it at all, only an Ethernet port on the WAN side and one on the LAN side.
In bench testing at home on my DSL line, which is 8 Mb/S, I noticed that a reliable speed test I use shows that the RB153 is cutting my speed in half.
Remember this is without anything special going on other than the hotspot on port 2. The WAN is on port 1. No radios or anything special going on- only a hotspot interface on Ether2
Is the nature of the beast? If so, I find this board to be completely useless. I have read the docs and cannot find anything referencing this issue.
Someone please tell me what I can do to speed things up. Junk this and go back to a PC? Go to the RB532?
