I have installed pfsense on two different PC's with different set of NIC's on both. I have used realtek and 3com ones and broadcom and via onboard. It happens no matter what.
I have ADSL with using a westell C90-610010-06 modem. The connection is PPPoE.
What happens is that the internet is slow and doesnt finish loading pages. It goes at like 1Kb/s instead of 3Mbit!
I connect the modem straight to the computer and I get the normal 3Mbit speed. I thought it was an MTU problem but I checked as I was informed in the IRC channel and everything is fine. Hardware wise everything is fine since I tried two completely different PCs and different set of NICs. I have not tried Intel but I dont think realteks and 3coms have problems honestly.
I have also tried setting the pppoe on the modem and then using dhcp on the wan interface and vise-versa and nothing.
PFsense is on default install, no packages no extensive configuration no nothing just a fresh install.
Any ideas what could be happening?
