[So Angry] Bandwidth bottleneck
I have a MI424WR-GEN3I verizon router. you know, the one they force you to have.
i also have a cisco RVS4000 router connected to one port on the verizon crapbox. behind this router is my greater LAN. every ethernet link is 1gbps. the WAN port on the RVS is gigabit and connected to the verizon stupidity at 1000Mbps.
i did a speedtest using verizon's official speedtest site. from behind my RVS4000, i only get about 2.5MBps. big b.
using a laptop connected to a lan port on the verizon junk, i was able to pull 7MB+ using the same speedtest.
so the RVS4000 is obviously the bottleneck. just to make sure, i put the RVS into router mode and made a static route on the verizon mess. i then connected a laptop to that same mess and tried to upload an iso to a nas sitting behind the RVS4000. same result: about 2.5MBps upload.
if i plug the laptop into the RVS directly and then try to put the same iso on the nas, i get 40MBps, so i know the LAN ports on the RVS aren't a problem, and the hardware is capable of pushing data at gigabit speeds.
that said, does anyone know why the WAN is bottlenecking on my RVS? i had the firewall disabled and still got the bottleneck.
