I’ve got a Peplink Balance 210 and 310 connected via SpeedFusion. The connections on the 210 are cable modem (20Mbps down/up) and DSL (1.5Mbps down/512kbs up), and on the 310 are 2xDS1 (3Mbps down/up), and DSL (10Mbps down/1.5Mbps up).
I’ve noticed that the SpeedFusion throughput is pretty low, rarely getting to 1 Mbps between the two sites. Upon checking the drop packet rate, I’ve found that the DS1 connection is experiencing more dropped packets than the DSL on the 310 unit, as much as 6 or 7 per second.
There doesn’t seem to be any speed issues when downloading via Internet, just between the sites and SpeedFusion.
Both units are running 5.4.9 firmware. I’ve tried manually setting the WAN link rate between all the different speeds at both full and half duplex, and with and without Advertise Link Speed checked. Nothing seems to help. When the DS1 connection is turned off, I regularly get 1 Mbps throughput, but all the dropped packets on the DS1 connection seem to slow the throughput to a crawl, around 10 kbps to 200 kbps.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do to get better throughput in SpeedFusion?
