I’m in a hotel this week, and lucky enough to snag an Ethernet connection for my AXT1800 (running 4.0.3-Release1). (ProTip: many times the TV’s in-room entertainment system has an Ethernet cable, and provided they don’t VLAN/MAC-filter it off, you can use it for Internet instead )
Anyway, this hotel likely has fiber as I could get ~100Mbit/sec in both directions on my laptop (wired to the SlatePlus) - at first. As the days went on, I’d noticed things seemed more sluggish and a Speedtest showed the same upload, but download was reduced to about ~30Mbit/sec. I figured I should try seeing if there was a newer firmware, but ended up just reloading 4.0.3-r1 and rebooting- and when I did, the download came back to the ~100Mbit figure.
Now, everything is wired up, and I have a Wireguard VPN connection active, but it only is for my home-office’s subnet (i.e., everything not 192.168.124.0/24 goes thru the WAN), so why/how should rebooting make things fast again? It was even the same Speedtest server as before the reboot. WiFi is active, but there was nothing on it but a couple of dormant cellphones.
I’m a little worried if this is something others are seeing, as these systems should pretty much do the same thing the entirety of the time it’s powered up.
