Slow website loading through wired connection from Deco M9 Plus

Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.4.3

I have 3 Deco M9 nodes in AP mode.

 

Node 1 (connected to my ISP modem/router by wire),

Node 2 (wirelessly connected to Node 1),

Node 3 (connected to Node 1 by ethernet backhaul).

I have a desktop PC connected to the free ethernet port on Node 3. PC connection status shows a 1Gb connection.

 

Wifi seems to be working fine in general.

 

Loading websites through this setup on my desktop (connected to Node 3 by ethernet) is annoyingly slow. A speedtest does not show anything suspicious (50mb down, 5 mb up, as is my internet plan, and 8ms ping which is also fine). A ping to 1.1.1.1 gets me 50ms the first try, later turning to 10ms.

Now, a direct connection from my desktop pc to my ISP modem/router, using the same ethernet cable that runs from Node 1 to Node 3 gives me snappy response while browsing. What's off?

 

Way back in the days, I'd change the DNS server for this behaviour. But with the Deco's in AP mode, the DNS server used is set in my ISP modem/router. If the problem lies there, it should also happen when using the UTP cable directly to my ISP modem/router.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi,

Was this computer the only device that had this issue?

--If yes, May I Know the model number as well as the operating system, the adapter information of this computer?

Would using a different browser make any difference?

Thank you very much.

 

update: I saw you also posted another post about the desktop with Deco M9 plus and the wireless adapter is Archer T4U

Please feel free to let me know whether this issue continued;

Hi,

 

Yes, this was the only PC that had this problem at the time. However, plugging in the ethernet cable to a different desktop that was normally connected wirelessly gives the same result. Browsers make no difference.

 

Both cases are Windows 7 machines, using the onboard Realtek Ethernet adapter. A Realtek PCI GBE Family on the secondary PC and a Realtek Fast Ethernet 8111E on my main system.

 

Re Archer: I think the Archer blew itself up (upon re-plugging it I had a BSOD and now the adapter seems dead), so in a weird way that's sorted now :)

Thank you very much for the update.

So currently, the Slow website loading only affected the Ethernet connection and if the same device is able to connect via Wi-Fi, the website uploading is ok?

Did it matter which Deco the Windows laptop is connected to?

 

Thanks a lot.

Correct!

There is only 1 node connected by ethernet (well apart from the first one ofcourse). I did not try to connect to Node 0 by wire yet. I did exchange nodes, setting up the network allover again. That gave me the same problem.
