#304 closed bug (wontfix)

WAN-LAN speed slow

Reported by: mihaly.reg@… Owned by:
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: fon-base-firmware Version: (Gari jr.)
Severity: unknown
Cc: Hardware: unknown


Download/upload with high speed using F2 with a 100MB internet contract is not possible, F2 slows down the communication to at most 10...12 Mbps. Checked at without F2, the net works at full speed, but with F2 shows 1..2 MB/s.

Same problem here; 35Mb is down and up speed according to contract. Tested on several servers (bbned,,, External disk is no issue; up and download to local disk.

Using F2 12.10 Mbps download 12.00 Mpps upload Without F2 (no router attached) 34.20 Mbps download 61.20 Mbps upload

Any solutions ? I mean the difference is huge so the F2 slows down my connection terribly.

A quick test with my 2.0g when sending data from LAN to WAN shows it can handle around 18 - 19 Mbit / s. My tests show a bit more bandwith than what you report The limiting factor here is the CPU: Every packet is inspected and routed by the CPU, which simply cannot handle more.

This situation will probably improved when we implement bridge mode for the 2.0g (but this only applies if you already have a modem that does NAT / is a router, so the 2.0g doesn't have to do NAT again and can be used in bridge mode). With bridge mode, the 2.0g can handle around 70 or 90 Mbit / s, depending on wether we'll use software or hardware bridging. See #836 to keep track of bridge mode for 2.0g.

As part of the upcoming firmware release, we're reviewing old open tickets to see if they are still relevant, which is why you get this response now.

Considering that this is probably just a hardware limitation, I'll close this ticket.

Note that the 2.0n should be able to handle 90-100Mbit, even when not in bridge mode.
