The reason I bought the RB450G in comparison to other Routerboard products, is the advertised high throughput.
However, in a test setup CPU usage is at 70-80% with only about 70mbit of WAN to LAN traffic from 1 client with 2 active ftp sessions.
This would mean WAN to LAN throughput would already max out at 100mbit, which is below both of the advertised throughput and my expectations.
RB450G with dhcp client on eth1, NAT, dhcp server and hotspot configured at eth5.
On eth5 there is 1 client directly connected to the device, with 1 active dhcp lease and logged in via hotspot. Download speed is tested with 2 active ftp sessions, maxing out the internet subscription at 70mbit.
RB450G has been upgraded to latest RouterOS, version 5.12
Is there anything I can do to improve these performance figures, or is this really only the maximum achievable throughput one can expect from the RB450G?
Thanks in advance
