    WAN throughput slower without NAT

    I recently added an RT-AC68U to my home network to create a subnetwork. However, after disabling NAT my WAN throughput dropped to 400Mbit (CPU1 100% and CPU2 60% load) from the recent 930Mbit (CPU1+2 at 100% load). Is this expected behaviour? Shouldn't disabling features increase speed rather...
