Hi Guys, I fell in this rabbit hole this weekend! I wished i'd know OpenWRT before! I can finally get rid of my ISP router!
So I repurposed a old Mikrotik TB951g. the reflash was easy and flawless.I Configured a Vlan for my IoT, one for the Guest SSID. etc.
My only issue is the Internet speed. I have a 1Gbps FTTH internet connection with bell Canada.
the GPON was connected to a HP procurve switch, OpenWRT manage the PPPoE part.
The latency is correct but I can't barely go over 150mbps Upload and Download. I purchased a TP-Link MC220L thinking maybe the issue was with the HP switch, same speed.
The RB951G didn't seem to to be overloaded. CPU didn't rise over 40% on a speed test. (see screenshot below)
Is there a way to optimize the WAN throughput? With the "OEM" firmware I never had any speed issue...
I did some reading on this forum but I'm still clueless about the cause of this slow internet speed.
