WAN speed throttled (r6300v1)

Description

If I use stock firmware I get my full internet speed (160 Megabit) - speedtest - http://imgur.com/cy6fbMZ

If I use ddwrt it gets throttled to around 110 Megabit - http://imgur.com/qg1QNzS

Trying builds from 2014/2015 the speed is throttled at around 85 megabit, so over time it did improve but still 50 Megabit behind what it should be.

I am running latest ddwrt, router is set to AP only mode.

I should add that overclocking the CPU through the ddwrt GUI didnt change anything, so doesnt seem like CPU is the bottleneck. Plus its plenty of CPU for stock firmware. This is a gigabit router.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

search up ddwrt software nat, stock fw has hardware nat. and that single core 600mhz is anything but "plenty of cpu"...

if this is via WiFi? I would agree with tatsuya46

However if this is via a wired ethernet port I would completely disagree with tatsuya46

A good way to determine what is going on, and determine if the hardware is indeed a limitation, is to look at the router status page while running a speedtest both via Wired and via Wifi and provide empirical evidence

Ah also, there is no information about the specific revisions/builds being tried, so this report is missing tons of useful information and if I were responsible for policing this I would close because of being incomplete and not make claims that are somewhat based on a bad report to begin with.

nothing to do with nat.. he wants wan speed not lan
