RAX40 slow wired ethernet ports in AP mode

I put the RAX40 in AP mode with a good connection to the main router (SFR BOX NB7 giving 500-800Mbps).

Wireless connections run fast; no issue.

BUT internet access via the wired ports on the RAX40 are limited to about 250Mbps (speedtest.net).

I tested to connect the main router to one of the 4 wired ports instead the yellow (WAN)

  • Now the wired ports run now at the main router speed (500-800Mbps)
  • And the wireless connections are down.

 

Thanks for help

Re: RAX40 slow wired ethernet ports in AP mode

My idea was to use:

        wifi (working well)

        and 2 ethernet ports 

on the RAX40 being connected to the main router from the Internet Provider, so I can't switch out.

 

And if the router is configured as as Router and not a "Wifi Access Point", internet ports run at full speed.

 

Thanks

ronald_fr, 

 

This may sound silly, but have you tried switching out the ethernet ports used on the RAX40?
