all ports, ethernet and wireless, are connected in one bridge. DHCP enabled.
Firewall only masquarading. No clients on wireless.
The slow traffic is from ethernet (NAS) to ethernet (PC).
The man who tries to configure the device is a CISCO guy, I think he has
some basic knowledge of networking, but he is new to MT.
Maybe he searches the solution in the wrong place.
Any hints ?
I asked him for further config data, still waiting for reply.
Well for starters, could you configure the ethernet ports in a swich instead of a bridge?
Please try and read up on how the hardware works. Switching gives you wirespeed performance, but you are unable to alter or influence traffic. Using bridging gives you a lot of options, but the packets all have to go through the CPU. Routing the traffc is the cleanest solutions and gives you the best throughput (after switching) and the ability to manipulate the traffic.
Now I don't know what kind of setup you are trying to create. But if you want a simple internet router setup, configure it as following.
Port 1: WAN/Internet interface
Port 2-9: Port 2 Master, rest of the ports in slave mode
Wireless either bridged or routed.
That way, the clients on port 2 through 9 should have wirespeed performance to eachother. Allthough I don't know how it works with 2 switch chips, but still. To the WAN should be routed and the wireless an be bridged or routed as stated, depending on requirements.
