Hi Donald,

Thanks for responding

The MTU seems fine.

This is the WAN link

pppoa-wan Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
          inet addr:  P-t-P:  Mask:
          RX packets:94409 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:85742 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
          RX bytes:75750172 (72.2 MiB)  TX bytes:14369708 (13.7 MiB)

I sent a 1492 byte icmp request externally which got through.

root at ubuntu:~# ping -s 1464
PING ( 1464(1492) bytes of data.
1472 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=57 time=49.4 ms
--- ping statistics ---
1 packets transmitted, 1 received, 0% packet loss, time 0ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 49.439/49.439/49.439/0.000 ms

So MTU looks fine.

Hi Daniel,

I just saw your message on the LEDE mailing list.  The freezing and catching up sounds like a MTU problem.  Could there be a MTU mismatch on the ADSL interface (1500 <->1492)?

I am quite desperate because I have a project going with these routers and I am running really late.

Can anyone spare some time to help me, I am willing to pay an hourly rate for the time if it will help.

This issue only occurs on ADSL. On VDSL performance is really good even using PPPoE.

The issue is a sluggish access to the CPU interface via ADSL, so for example if you are typing in a SSH client, it will keep freezing for a second or two, than catch up.

Routed traffic is fine.

someone else did performance/throughput testing on the HH5A, the results are posted here: [0]

I did not have time to look into this yet, but maybe Hauke or John have an idea what's going on.
