SF1200: <70mbps routing = normal?

On a wired connection, I get ~400mbps with the edgerouter lite, but with exactly the same setup, got less than 70mbps on the SF1200 after a reset.

I’m sure it was faster before. Why might this be? What to check first?

version = 3.216, but there is no newer version of openWRT available? GL.iNet download center

It turns out that the sf1200 went unsupported years ago!

My plan was to just use it as an access point.

What I don’t understand is why it works for a bit, then randomly stops working? Do I really have to throw this in the bin and buy a new access point?
