Long intro an short question
I have an openwrt router ASUS RT-AC51U working as (unencrypted) tunnel endpoint. I have a 4G data uplink. load average of router is around 0.05 idle, when testing around 0.20.
I used 3 different devices to connect to a 4G network:
- ZTE with wlan connected to Openwrt
- TP-Link MR3020 and
- TP-Link MR6400, both with fast Ethernet port connected to Openwrt router.
The 4G connection supports download rates around 30 to 50 Mbps and upload rates from 15 to 30 Mbps. When I connect my smartphone or a laptop via wifi to the 4G devices directly I get download rates of 23 Mbit and upload rates between 4.5 to 5.2 Mbps (At the beginning of the test much faster but during the test limited due to limitation of 20/5 Mbps from account).
When I connect via fast ethernet to the openwrt router, I most times get around 10 to 12 Mbps, upload is regularly at 5 Mbps. The fast Ethernet (between openwrt and laptop) can give around 89 Mbps measured with iperf.
Question: Anything I can test or do to get the same performance on the ethernet link as I got with the 2.4Ghz wifi link ??? [thinking of NAT performance, firewall settings, known problems with the asus device, ... ] - (also tested: wifi between 4G router and openwrt-router does not reach those speeds too)
I just want to get my 20 Mbps through the openwrt device
