    Hello all,

    I have just got myself connected to fiber to the home, at 1GB download.

    running shibby 140 - I'm capped for download at 350mb.
    Running latest stock FW - getting over 800mb.

    wondering why? I have shut down everything on shibby FW (FW,monitoring,everything) and still.
    is this a driver issue? why can't I max out download with the shibby FW?

    Read a bit about it, wondering about the following:

    1. when it's ON, any other functionality disabled or stops working ?
    2. why do people say it's "cheating"?
    3. people claim it's better to just get a stronger router, to which I ask
    a. why? R7000 should be strong enough. the router the ISP gave me is so much worse and it handles this very easily.
    b. what's considered stronger then R7000 ? what would be able to handle 900MB without CTF?

    I still don't understand the whole discussion? if this CTF feature works so well, why avoid using it ?

    CTF disables most features that depends on iptables, like QoS, bandwidth limiter, etc. Port forwards are supported in CTF mode but most implementations don't use CTF so forwarded traffic can be CPU limited (so normal traffic is accelerated but port forwarded traffic is not). There's also evidence that CTF works with a fixed set of iptables rules that cannot be adjusted, so if you want to customize your rules you may find rules being ignored or cause the router to drop out of CTF mode.
