Recently installed a Balance 305 (hardware revision 1, firmware 6.2.1 build 3345) to replace a Mikrotik CCR router. The Peplink is connected to both a 150 / 20 connection (WAN1) and a 100 / 10 connection (WAN2). I have set those speeds in the WAN configuration. Outbound policy is set to “Overflow” with WAN1 on top.
I have a computer connected directly to the LAN port of the router (verified 1Gbps link). When I speed test the router, it gives me 60 / 10 every time. Does not matter if I use speedtest.net or the Peplink speed test tool. They are both the same. If I remove the Peplink and put the Mikrotik back in, I get 165 / 25 from speedtest.net reliably (cable modem gives me a bit more than my purchased speed).
No QOS settings are active on the Peplink but “DSL Cable Optimization” is on - since both WANs are cable lines.
I understand that hardware revision 1 for the 305 has a 200 Mbps limit. That is still above my fastest Internet connection. I would expect to see ~ 150 / 20 when I speed test (or faster using Peplinks speed test tool).
I must be doing something wrong but I can’t find what it is. Below are a couple screen shots of my settings.
