For sure DECA should be no worse than wired Ethernet and typically it will be better.


Performance (between two good modules :lol: ) seems the same as before I had the DECA installation, and it was fine then.

Just to "play," I went to Speedtest.net and ran a test with my laptop connected to a DECA module. I got around 12Mb down, where it would normally be around 20Mb through ethernet. Of course, DECA is optimized for MRV traffic, not internet.

This is very true .. Just like I'd say DECA over Ethernet for MRV .. I'd say Ethernet over DECA for General purpose ;)

The installer met me today (where I was having lunch, no less) and brought a replacement DECA module. After connecting it and testing, all is good now. So yes, a faulty DECA module is possible... and confirmed.

Case closed. :)
