Disable QoS. QoS insn't really needed on a 1G ISP service line. 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>Orbi RBK853 v3.2.15.2#(Router Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200, Orbi CBK40, Orbi RBK50/RBK853, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111

As above, disable it via the Anti-Bufferbloat 3 line menu.

That can't be the case, QoS disabled should always net you the higher speeds or at least the same. Are you testing using wireless or ethernet? Have you put 1000/1000 into bandwidth settings?

I would try a factory reset on the XR router and setup from scratch. Might walk thru the setup wizard, here it will detect the ISP speed, if it doesnt' detect it correctly, I would by pass the wizard, go in and disable QoS, do a full reboot of the XR and Fiber ONT and try a speed test via ethernet. 

 

Try directly connecting to the ONT with out the XR router with the wired PC to check speeds here.

Re: xr500 router what settings to use for bandwidth allocation, qos etc

Yes it should. Are other devices connected to the switch and therefore bypassing the router? If so that may be the cause as they may be pulling bandwidth away from the router.

Be sure to test at the modem first then directly behing the XR router. Don't speed test with anything in between. 

 

Does this modem have a built in router?

Modem Combo Units:
Couple of options,
1. Configure the modem for transparent bridge or modem only mode. Then use the NG router in router mode. You'll need to contact the ISP for help and information in regards to the modem being bridged correctly.
2. If you can't bridge the modem, disable ALL wifi radios on the modem, configure the modems DMZ/ExposedHost or IP Pass-Through for the IP address the NG router gets from the modem. 

 

I would use option #2 for the XR router.

Re: xr500 router what settings to use for bandwidth allocation, qos etc

I already removed the att pace modem out of the equation.....  I did the dumb switch method

 

https://www.dslreports.com/forum/r32491796-bypass-att-pace-gateway 

 

so it goes from ont to nighthawk router, i fooled the ont to think the nighthawk is the modem...but im still getting dowload half of uoload?  400 down and 800 up?   thoughts?

Re: xr500 router what settings to use for bandwidth allocation, qos etc

Thats not going to work as the public IP address coming from the ONT to the Switch can only work for 1 connected device. So the XR won't connect directly to the ONT with out the switch? 

You may need to contact the ISP and have them help you with this and see if they can get you set up better with speeds. They may required you to use the PACE router.

Have you tried with the ONT > Pace > XR to see if you get full speeds that way at all?

Re: xr500 router what settings to use for bandwidth allocation, qos etc

Yes I did that initially 400 down 800 up
Removed pace 500 down 900 up
So pace seemed to be holding it down

But why is my download about half of upload makes no sense

Re: xr500 router what settings to use for bandwidth allocation, qos etc

That is strange, in Internet Setup could you give the XR the MAC address of the pace router and then reboot please and see if that helps.
