I have rutx50 and when I connect through ethernet cable I measure the speed is 20 -30% slower than the WiFi, I think this is not normal! I am used to the cable connection is always faster on my home router.
That’s weird; I’m using an RUTX50 and receiving higher speed on the LAN port than on the Wi-Fi; I feel the measurement values are incorrect; try testing it again using speedookla.
Your issue may be caused by Ethernet cable and not the router.
It is recommended to use CAT6 or higher Ethernet cable in order to get high speed connections.
Yeah my cable is CAT5 then I have to find CAT6 and try that. The cable that came with the router is CAT5.
The issue is likely not with the cable, but rather with the speed testing methodology. To properly test the WiFi vs Ethernet speed, install iPerf3 on the router by logging in via SSH/CLI, and running the following commands:
opkg update #the errors at the end are normal, please ignore them opkg install iperf3 iperf3 -s &
Then on the PC run the iPerf3 instance downloaded from here: iPerf - Download iPerf3 and original iPerf pre-compiled binaries. Run the command
iperf3 -c rutx50.lan -P 4
It will start the speed test, which should take 10 seconds. Then perform the same test over WiFi.
I have no idea how to login to SSH/CLI, if I log in to the router I cant find the System → CLI
