Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

Hello, I have been using meraki for more than 2 years no.i have noticed that whenever i switch to my old routre (Mikrotik motherboard) the connect tends to be faster than when i am running under my meraki router mx 64. i have been working on traffic shaping and other type of filtering but still slow compare to mikrotik.

so which are the desired configuration for my network know that i have only 2 Mbps up/down?

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

Also slow with filtering, IDS and AMP disabled?

duplex and speed setting on the wan port and upstream device are the same?

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

Is content filtering enabled?
Is IPS enabled?
Is AMP enabled?

 

These settings will have an effect on the performance of the MX?.

 

Also make sure the WAN port has the same speed and duplex settings as the Upstream device it is connecting to.

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

Under Security Appliance > Configure > Traffic shaping, what is your Uplink configuration set to? If you have it set to the full 2 Gbps, your device could be trying to pull bandwidth that it is incapable of doing. You should set this to the actual speeds you are paying for (I learned this from support a few months back).

 

Additionally, there is a section for Global bandwidth limits which sets a per-client limit. What is that set to? This could be affecting your speed if it is set too low.

 

And of course, like everyone is saying, check the duplex setting on the uplink connection.

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

Check on Speed limit under network shaping.  I ran into this issue before. Security->configuration->Traffic Shaping.  Under Uplink Configuration: Set WAN 1 to 2 Mbps.  Global Bandwidth Limits per-client-limit to unlimited.

Hope this help.

Kind of a big deal

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

And what speed is your internet?  MX is only good up to 250M.  If you have a really large pipe then the MX will be undersized.

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

MX100 model, WAN uplink configuration is up to 1Gbps.  If you have service more than 250M, then you may think to upgrade to MX100 or MX400.

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

It just depend on our locations, some locations we have over 100M, some we have under 100M Service.  We have all different model of MX.

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

You have WAN 1 set to 2Mbps on the uplink config. So you're only going to get 2Mb of throughput from the MX. You need to set that to the correct value of your WAN speed.

Re: Meraki MX 64 Slow internet

there are a lots of loss rate.  Check the uplink cable and the cable modem.  Try to ping google.com from the security appliance tool.
