A client equipped with two Kerio Control software appliances for its two sites has just subscribed to Bell's Small Business internet FTTH service at 250/250 speeds. That client is not using TV services with Bell.

Bell has installed a Sagemcom 2864 modem/router device that can't be used in bridge mode properly, as the connected speeds drop to 50/50 in that context.

I found the following tutorial to get a pfSense-based router to replace the Sagemcom device completely : https://forum.pfsense.org/index.php?topic=87738.0

I tried to reproduce that technique in Kerio Control by setting its WAN interface to have a VLAN ID 35 and using the resulting VLAN interface on PPPoE for communication with Bell; it does connect and works, but I'm unable to reach the 250/250 up/down speeds I should be getting. Depending on the Speed Test service I use, I'm getting anywhere between 88/120 and 50/30 instead.

KC Appliance is running on an HP PC with 6 GB RAM, 500 GB HDD and has four Intel 82574L PCIe Gigabit NICs installed. System Health registers CPU usage as very low most of the time, with some infrequent peaks at around 60%.

Thanks for your help!
