I’m using this HW.
Red is on first RJ45 input.
I have a 750MB line in. Connected directly to the modem I measure this speed.
Out on green either RJ45 or fiber I’m only able to get close to 300 MB
If we assume I don’t have an issue with Ethernet cables nor the singel mode fiber I use, where to investigate or understand where the issue is ?
The dealer suggests some sort of driver issues. But I guess that’s not easy to change.
Is these a problem ?
2 x Intel 82583 Gigabit Ethernet + 2 x Intel i350-AM2 Fiber Gigabit Ethernet
I’ve plugged RJ45 directly into RJ45 as green and measured.
I’ve changed green to SFP (via SSH) and plugged a FTLF1421P1BCL with both 1 meter fiber as well as 20 meter fiber. Using a FMC in order to connect the laptop when testing.
This is why I don’t think the problem is outside my iPfire hardware.
I also tested different cable between my modem and the firewall.
I also installed iPfire on a second device. Actually my old ipCop firewall (just replaced the SSD). Still same result. Maybe even slightly better.
I’m quite sure the modem is in bridge mode. I haven’t logged in an verify, but as I’m getting a public IP on red, I must expect this isn’t an issue.
