Because of how fast the connection is, it is hard to use most of the bandwidth without opening lots of simultaneous connections.
Will I always be limited by the routing capabilities of the ONT or is there a way I can use my own router that is more powerful? The Adtran lacks even basic firewall features as well so I would like to upgrade to something better. Is bridging possible at all? Also are there any specifications or datasheets on the performance of the ONT? I could not find any online but it would be helpful to know so I can set some limits and not overload it.
I opened a support case but they said I should post in the forums in order for the networking team to look in to the issue.
Here is information in order to replicate the test I was doing which causes the problem:
Intel(R) 82599 NIC
- Clicked popular torrent on academictorrents.com and sorted by most seeded. Picked an open source dataset: the 6.7GB ImageNet one https://academictorrents.com/details/5d ... e5e3a5f2e5
- Set connection settings in qBittorrent (see attached image)
- Selected to save the torrent on an SSD and started it.
I also tested with my desktop connected directly to the ONT and had the same results.
