In both directions between clients we have this decreasing speed. Also we have this problem between far router and client in both directions. Between routers we have normal speed.

Thank's, we will try to decrease MTU. We only tried to increase MTU during our experiences.

We have tried a lot if different configurations, may be not all. In any cases we will not stop in our target to make good router with fast connections.
