pfsense Internet speed is limited for every user
« on: December 20, 2017, 05:10:05 am »
Hello,

We recently upgraded our bandwidth from 50-200mb/s and many users in the company seems to be getting less bandwidth when uploading or downloading (some times). When they use internet speed tester their getting 200mb/s which is fine. But users getting less bandwidth for some reason?

Is there anything I have to edit in pfshense? from online research it says something needs to be changed in Firewall -> traffic shaper -> By Queue -> qInternet -> and under LAN:HFSC the bandwidth is: 20971.52Kb (what does this means?, what does this queue means ?)

Thanks.

Out of the box there are no queues or shaping or limiting done... So you would of created those.. So I take it you didn't set up this pfsense?

Is it current 2.4.2_p1?

I would suggest you remove any old queue/limiting/shaping that would of been done by previous persons and create correctly for your current needs and bandwidth.
