By the way, what, then, does the ~200Mbps link in the coax status mean, if moca itself cannot pass higher than around 70Mbps? My first guess is that part of the translation process requires a higher bandwidth between the two over coax.. So if a 240Mbps link yields my 63Mbps ethernet link, then with a 200Mbps link I should expect a drop of around the same percentage throughput..
Not 100% sure, but I think it is the total bandwidth of the connection. So if you had 4 adapters at 60Mbps the link would be maxed out.
I will continue to work on the u/d link differences in iperf. fwiw, I'm using "iperf-2.05-cygwin" which is a build of 2.0.5 for windows using, obviously, cygwin. I don't know if that's what version you normally recommend, but we're all windows here. I have some unix boot usb's that I could use if absolutely necessary, but if I can truely get >40Mbps each way and the iperf thing is a fluke with my laptop measuring tools, then I'm happy! This build of iperf 2.0.5 could also be the difference in the window size issue-- again, if that's not the one you typically run.
thanks again, xnappo!
That should work, I am using 1.7.0 natively compiled for windows(sorry don't know where I got it), but I don't think the version is the issue. It is good the your house wiring is presenting any problems...
