MT3000 Packet steering

Without hardware acceleration, I noticed slow internet speed using PPPoE.
Using Htop, I saw one core at 100% and the other with almost no load.
I enabled packet steering and it did the trick. Speed went from 380 to 680Mbps(My full speed)
That said, i’d like to know why it isn’t enabled by default? @alzhao


The same aplies to the MT2500. So probably to all devices with filogic 820. @hansome @alzhao

Thanks for sharing, we’ll do some tests and enable packet steering when hardware acceleration if off accordingly.
