Xiaomi AC2100 Router: Max Internet Speed Issue Without Offloading

Hello everyone,

Good afternoon! I have a Xiaomi AC2100 router running the latest version of OpenWRT, but I've been facing an issue with the maximum internet speed.

When I measure the speed with the "offloading" option enabled, both in software and hardware, I can reach the full 600Mbps of my internet plan. However, if I disable the "offloading" option, the internet speed does not go beyond 300Mbps. I'm wondering why this is happening.

I would like to achieve the maximum speed without using the "offloading" option so that I can use "QoS" (Quality of Service). Can anyone help me understand why this speed difference occurs and how I can optimize my setup to achieve the maximum speed without "offloading"?

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

offloading bypasses some stuff, to be able to provide improved throughput ...
