Just upgraded my residential connection to 250Mbps cable. During testing I am only able to achieve ~130 Mbps throughput on PCs on the LAN side of the Balance 20. Cable modem is cfg’d as a transparent bridge. It is the sole wan connection, and is directly connected to WAN1 on the Balance. One Balance LAN port goes to a GB Netgear dumb switch for distribution.
If I use the cable-provided Hitron CGN3 modem as a router, then I’m able to achieve stable speeds in excess of 300 Mbps. Seeing as the Peplink is using GB ports for WAN and LAN, I was very surprised to see this significant loss of throughput being caused by the Balance.
The balance is running FW 6.2.2. Only a couple of minor inbound forwards are configured, and a PPTP server.
Is there anything I can do to alleviate this throughput loss?
