PPPoE really slow speeds when connecting through DSL Modem?
I'm running a Sun Microsystems Netra T105 SPARC box as a router/firewall/gateway/NAT.
It's a 400MHz machine with 360MB RAM. Initially I tested it's routing capability with 100Mbps Ethernet and it was quite close to wire-speed however, I'm currenty using for my WAN needs for my ADSL Annex M line and unfortunately not getting anywhere near the speeds the line is capable of serving.
My WAN speed should be 20Mbps downstream and 2Mbps upstream. My current rates are below 5Mbps downstream and 700kbps upstream.
The modem I'm using is a Cisco 887VA which is both Annex M ADSL and VDSL compatible.
I took my config for the OpenBSD server from here:
The reason I want to use the OpenBSD box as router/gateway/NAT/Firewall is that Cisco's keep crashing on me when loads get higher. Their NAT's don't really handle the stress of 1000+ connections (takes up more memory then the boxes have).
The config that I'm running is here:
default: set log Phase Chat IPCP CCP tun command set redial 15 0 set reconnect 15 10000 pppoe: set device "!/usr/sbin/pppoe -i hme0" disable acfcomp protocomp deny acfcomp set mtu max 1454 set speed sync enable lqr set lqrperiod 5 set cd 5 set dial set login set timeout 0 set authname <authname> set authkey <key> add! default HISADDR # enable dns enable mssfixup
options lock auth usehostname
# Start PPPoE ahead of ntpd echo -n ' PPPoE' ppp -ddial pppoe sleep 20
MYADDR: !bg /sbin/pfctl -d
MYADDR: !bg sh -c "/sbin/pfctl -e -f /etc/pf.conf"
I was thinking of using the router for PPPoA with another public IP then routing that to my OpenBSD machine. Outside of that am totally stuck; I see people using PPPoE with VDSL2 even meaning that the higher speeds should be obtainable just how?
