I know there are plenty of topics in the forum and I understand that people are able to get Gigabit through the router in both directions. I am however interested if anybody is able to get gigabit output by the apu2c4. I thoroughly tested my setup but canít identify the source of the issue yet, so I am looking for some further input
I subscribed for Fibre to the home with swiss-based fibre7 company that delivers 1GB/s internet, however I realized after various test that I get in various speed test always half the download speed of the upload speed. Fibre7 delivers 1GB/s, which I could confirm using a PC directly attached to the uplink port.
So now I turned to investigate on my apu2c4 router, I have tested the following and they all return with the same result (output traffic originating from my router is half the speed the router can forward). All tests done with iperf:
- Internet throughput through the router with/without nat iptables
- Dedicated 1:1 link between PC/router tested
- Different physical ports on the router
- Different physical cables (first sign of desperation)
- Different TCP/ ethtool tuning tips (chksum offloading on/off, MTU sizes, txlength)
- Different kernels 4.4 ubuntu stock, 4.9 self-compiled, 4.10 self-compiled
- Different operating systems (Pfsense BSD, different Linux flavors)
- Tested with a new Macbook Pro - here the issue is swapped 400Mbit input / 900Mbit output
I am wondering now if anyone is able to output gigabit from their apu2c4 and can confirm this is indeed possible?
