WAN port speed on RVS4000

I have an RVS4000 with the following:

V1.3.3.5
CPU:STAR 9202

I believe it's a v1 of the RVS4000 as I've tried to put the 2.x.x firmware and I couldn't.

My ISP upgraded me to a 100Mb/20Mb down/up plan (Quantum 100 here: https://www.highlandsfibernetwork.com/internet). However, through my RVS4000, I get the following speeds:

Download Speed 18498 kbps (2312.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed 19098 kbps (2387.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Latency 7 ms

Client Time December 4, 2011 11:06 AM

Server Time December 4, 2011 11:06 AM PST

When I connect directly to the switch rather than through my RVS4000 I get:

Download Speed 45818 kbps (5727.3 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed 6240 kbps (780 KB/sec transfer rate)

Latency 5 ms

Client Time December 4, 2011 10:59 AM

Server Time December 4, 2011 10:58 AM PST


Clearly there's something wrong here, where I'm getting less than half the download speed through the RVS4000 than I do without it. From the datasheet, it states that the RVS4000's WAN port is a 10/100/1000 port, so I don't see why I should have the limitation on speed.

Can someone help resolve this?

WAN port speed on RVS4000

Hi,

the only solution to improve NAT performance is to disable IPS function and in some cases QoS engine too. You can find many posts about in this forum. You have the latest firmawre in your device, the 2.X.X.X firmware is only for version 2, which has different switch chipset.

WAN port speed on RVS4000

Hello Abudef,

I disabled IPS and verified that QOS is disabled. Now with the speed test, I get a large improvement, basically bringing me up to the speed without the RVS4000 involved:

Download Speed 41811 kbps (5226.4 KB/sec transfer rate)

Upload Speed 20550 kbps (2568.8 KB/sec transfer rate)

Latency 5 ms

Client Time December 4, 2011 07:47 PM

Server Time December 4, 2011 07:46 PM PST

Thank you so much for your help!

Robert.
