I have EdgerouterX at home which is updated to firmware v. 1.10.11 (latest from 1.X.X. standpoint). There is no heavy traffic on it, just some home IPTV streaming, few regular internet surfing devices (phone/laptops). And some rarely used services accessed from the “internet”/outside on some dedicated ports.
I updated my ISP line from full-duplex copper 100/100mbit to optical 500/300Mbps.
I have 500down/300up Mbps at my ISP Optical Network Terminal (Nokia all in one ONT).
On the EdgerouterX side I have 300Mbps down and 250Mbps up. The EdgerouterX is connected directly behind the ISP ONT.
Hardware offloading was enabled and device was rebooted:
“set system offload hwnat enable”
I believe this is related to my additional configuration on it.
-I removed my traffic sharper QoS service but still no significant improvement.
-I also have 3x Vlans LAN/WAN/Service which I believe cap out the weak CPU on that device.
-I have few port forwarding rules for services (home cameras, wp-site and some other small services running on the Service VLAN.
-I have Firewall rules blocking and isolating some device from the rest of the network
-I have l2tp VPN service
On the Nokia ONT I did some config which should be irrelevant to affect the EdgerouterX :
-I configured on it some direct port forwarding and I’m still using my EdgerouterX as main router.
-The ONT hold 1static IPv4 provided by my ISP for my service.
My main question. Are those VLANS to big struggle for that device? What is the next step in the unifi edge class that can handle this load described above?
Thanks in advice!
update1: I might need a Router with hardware vlan offload? Also I checked all cables with per-tested gigabit Cat6a 10cm (short patch cables) so its not a cable issues.
update2: After removing the vlan config I was able to go full 500Mbps so it seems the VLAN routing between different VLANS and the GW cape out the CPU of the EdgerouterX. Will accept any suggestions for the next “step” (router from unifi) in this segment. Thanks
