Evening all,
Finally got set up with a ubiquity dream machine and a vigor130 modem and ditched the frankly unstable Vodafone modem/router.
All running fine in bridge mode, but speed tests on the UDM are maxing out at 2-3mb when we were previously getting up to 11mb down.
Does anyone have the full settings I might need in case it’s something on the modem? We are rural and have an awlful connection but it’s usually just up and down, not consistently slow

If the connection is up and down like a yoyo do you have a master filter on the line?

This is bound to be firmware, are you using the DV130 as a PPPoE to PPPoA relay?

Latest firmware is on the UDM, is there a better one for the vigor130?

On the vigor130 I have
Vpi 0
VcI 100
Encapsulation type VC MUX
protocol PPPoA
Modulation multimoda

PPPoE passthrough for wired lan enabled

MTU 1492

When using the modem unbridged I get the full 10-11mb speed.

Found the issue!


On the UDM wan network, Smart queues were enabled. I guess it had a slow Speedtest when it was doing the initial setup and had set that to a really low number!
Disabling that has sorted the speed issue out :)
