Ethernet slower than Wi-Fi

Hello there!

I installed OpenWRT some time ago now and O have realised that my Etherent is slower than my Wi-FI
I get 100Up 20Down on Ethernet and 200Up 200Down on Wi-Fi
I have tried this on multiple computers to the same outcome.

I use a Tp-Link Archer C6v2 EU with OpenWrt 21.02.0 r16279-5cc0535800(Kernel 5.4.143)
Hardware And Software flow offloading is enabled
Packet Steering is disabled.

I have never encountered this issue with stock firmware.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Do you have SQM QoS activated to the wrong interface?

Please explain SQM QoS

that would be a no, then :wink:

I'd start by checking your cables and anything between the router and the client device(s).

Is the client device in question directly connected to the router? Or is there anything in-between such as a switch, power line adapter, or other network devices?

I seem to get more resonable speeds by removing my 1000BaseT Switch
I dont see any other device inbetween

Maybe that switch is failing. Or the extra cable could be faulty.
