I have a TP-Link 1043nd router, with OpenWrt 10.03.1rc4, but all 10.03 versions have the same issue. I make a speedtest script with curl, which downloads big files to /dev/null from a gigabit connected server on the internet:
curl -o /dev/null http://speedtest.szelessavkereso.hu/spe … 0x4000.jpg
My network speed is 120Mbit, and the computers connected to router's LAN ports, can be download with theese maximal speed. But the speedtest script only downloads max. 40Mbit speed. If i download big files from a local webserver, it goes with max. 100Mbit (local is only 100Mbit network.)
So the router can't download with maximal speed from WAN to /dev/null, but from LAN to /dev/null can download with maximal speed. What can be wrong?
