I am having no small problem trying to get max throughput on my PfSense box and my Ubiquiti AP. I am new all this so I am learning as I go. I have watched a lot of Lawrence’s videos, read forums and still, nothing has worked.
I currently am paying for gigabyte speeds through Comcast and my pfSense can only get 350 Mbps down and 42 up, with both my Netgear CM1000 Modem and Comcasts Modem. With Comcast Modems itself I can get 980Mbps down and 45 Up, but my Ubiquiti (Ubiquiti UniFi UAP-AC-PRO) will only get 250 Down and 42 upon WiFi with both Modems and with or without PfSense. On the WiFi from Comcast Modem, I can get 600 Mbps Down and 45 Up.
pfSense Hardware specs are
-Intel i5-7200t 2.7Ghz
-32 Gbs of Ram
-1 Gigabyte port
-Usb3.1 to RJ45 (which has been tested with multiple different cables and modems- it can get 980 Down)
I have tried a number of things:
-Both pfSense and AP- Factory Resets (3 times)
-pfSense- turned off all firewall rules and blockers- No effect
-pfSense- Tried to adjust MTU- No effect
-pfSense- Bloating is not an issue
-pfSense- toggled with Hardware Checksum Offloading… no effect
AP- tried changing radio channels…no significant increase
AP- changed power levels… no change
AP- Turned off APs DHCP capibilities…no effect
I am sure I am missing something super simple and I am new to self-networking… I would appreciate any help or advice.
