I have a symmetric 1Gbps FTTH connection, and I just replaced the ISP provided router with this mikrotik and openwrt. After enabling hardware offload, I was able to get 1Gbps download, but below 300Mbps upload.
When testing bufferbloat, latency spikes a bit more on the upload test as well (about 50ms).
I tried disabling IPv6 because of this thread, which I don't understand completely, but it didn't help.
Any pointers? Should I share any logs or config? I'm on 22.03.0-rc4.
Hi @andrewalker .
I got issues with down/up too. I'm interested in the "enabling hardware offload" method. Got some link please ?
Thank you mate.
Ok i think i got it. Just wanted to do via conf/cli but it works via gui
I got better performances now.
Right, that's the place indeed. You can see the changes LuCi made to the configuration files.
But even then, I don't get much more than 300Mbps upload, even though it was supposed to be 1Gbps. Do you? I do get the full download speed, though.
When I made the suggested LuCi changes; these were the only two changes made to the firewall file.
i figured out the settings are in /etc/config/firewall :
option flow_offloading '1'
option flow_offloading_hw '1'
I don't get my full isp's bandwidth :
[ ID] Interval Transfer Bitrate Retr
[ 5] 0.00-10.01 sec 717 MBytes 601 Mbits/sec 286 sender
[ 5] 0.00-10.02 sec 717 MBytes 600 Mbits/sec receiver
The sfp kernel's module could be in cause :
[ 242.612130] sfp sfp1: failed to read SFP soft status: -6
[ 504.873404] sfp sfp1: module transmit fault indicated
[ 506.203408] sfp sfp1: module transmit fault recovered
need to check if there's some patch.
also could possibly be a hint :
