About the connection benchmark in DumaOS

Hello people !

Now I use the XR500 in router mode. By curiosity, I am exploring the UI and I ran the test for the connection benchmark. I got :

download 447 mbps, upload 388 mbps

When I run the test from a computer (so behind the router) to a distant website, I find

download 925 Mbps, upload 398 Mbps

How can it be faster behind the router ? It's not logical... And Indeed I have a 1Gb connection (in theory, because in the past, I got more than 1000 Mbps in download, and gradually, it's decreasing, I think that my ISP is cheating :-)). I guess that that comes from the distant server used by dumaOS. Am I correct or is it a subtle difference between mbps and Mbps ? Or is there any other reason ?

The problem is that when the router chooses a server to test the speeds, it doesn't always pick the best one. Which is why we rarely recommend the built in test server at those 500mbps+ plans.

Questions about the XR500 are best asked here:

 

Nighthawk Pro Gaming Routers - NETGEAR Communities

It is where users of that device hang out and is watched by the people who support the dumaOS operating system.
