I’m trying to share my phone’s 5g connectin via the router. Annoyingly, though, when connected I max out at 240 to 260Mbps which struck me as roughly half of USB2’s bandwidth.
So I’ve had a look at the logs:
1297894.688946] usb 2-1: new SuperSpeed USB device number 2 using xhci-hcd
[1297901.767699] usb 2-1: USB disconnect, device number 2
[1297902.638910] usb 2-1: new SuperSpeed USB device number 3 using xhci-hcd
[1297902.688914] rndis_host 2-1:1.0 usb0: register ‘rndis_host’ at usb-xhci-hcd.0.auto-1, RNDIS device, de:60:ab:4f:c3:a6
It does indicate that the device is a super speed device but I dont’ get higher data transfer rates (wired or wireless). If i connect the device directly to my laptop then I get 400 Mbps.
Does the USB socket truly support USB3? Is this a settings issue? Is there some other software issue interfering?
