After a bunch of scratching my head on why my speed tests weren't going great guns, I had a poke around google for others using their ERL as a WAN+2LAN + PPPOE client setup.

 

For some reason, it seems that hardware offloading is *off* by default when you use the wizard to setup the ERL. Turning it on made a huge difference in speed test results for me.

 

You can check whether it is on in your config tree, but if it isn't, this worked for me:

 

configure

 

set system offload ipv4 pppoe enable

 

set system offload ipv4 vlan enable

 

set system offload ipsec enable

 

set system offload ipv4 forwarding enable

 

 

 

commit

 

save

I've said this many times - The WAN+2LAN wizard is not that great :)

 

I can't remember what wizard (and don't want to reset my ERL to find out) but you essentially want to avoid the hell out of bonded interfaces. For me I am using all 3 interfaces however they're separate networks (airgapped in a way with a bunch of Firewall rules) since they're doing different things. But otherwise a great tip.

 

You can check your offloading w/ "show ubnt offload":

02:40 mmurphy@charmander ~ $ show ubnt offload

 

IP offload module : loaded
IPv4
forwarding: enabled
vlan : enabled
pppoe : enabled
gre : disabled
IPv6
forwarding: enabled
vlan : enabled
pppoe : disabled

 

IPSec offload module: loaded

 

Traffic Analysis :
export : enabled
dpi : enabled

 

Also on another note EdgeOS 1.8.5 got launched I believe sometime today: Clicky. I took this chance to tidy up my network and am now down to 4 SSID's and 3 physical networks ;)

WAN+2LAN is not bonded; WAN+2LAN2 is bonded (and therefore avoidable) I think.

 

 

 

I'm still struggling with some LAN issues with my ERL - it takes a good 5 seconds for it to resolve internal routes (e.g. to my raspberry pi dns servers), and the IPV4 forwarding offloading setting seems to lengthen the delay, so I've turned it off for now.

I don't understand getting an Edgerouter and then using the wizard...

 

It's like buying Mercedes and not using sport+ mode.

It takes time to learn EdgeOS, and so the GUI and wizard can be very useful when starting out. Plus my networking and routing knowledge is still a work in progress.

 

I'm a full-time economist by day and a part-time geek by night, so I don't mind buying the Mercedes and then waiting a while before I can take it out of town to try the sport+ mode.

I don't see a problem using the wizard to do an initial config for the router. It saves a lot of time, especially when you're dealing with a half done GUI that's not always intuitive.

 

Just because you can do it manually doesn't mean you have to

Hear, Hear.

 

Without the wizard, my ERL 3 would be for the landfill.

 

I really want to learn, but getting it operational on day one was paramount.
