Much slower LAN speed than direct from the house network

I am now connected to gigabit service, with the google fiber router feeding service into the house Cat5e wiring.  I noticed my computer speed tested at 940 or so up and down direct into the wall, but when connected to the wired lan ports on the back of the R6700, I "only" get 435 MPS down and 500MPS up.

 

Any ideas on how to get faster wired speed and still use the router?  I was reading other posts, and I made sure blocking was off.  Are there other things to do to get the throughput higher, or is this router just not up to the job?

 

Thanks!

Re: Much slower LAN speed than direct from the house network

Everything is working fine now, I got rid of my Google Fiber Network box, and replaced it with a Netgear Pro Smart Switch which can do the vlan2 tagging.  Anyway, the router is working fine, passing 900+ through the wired ports.

Make sure the following are all off.  If any are on, reboot after turning them off.

  • QoS
  • Traffic metering
  • MAC address cloning
  • MAC address access control
  • Keyword blocking
  • Service blocking
  • AP mode

Alternatively, perform a factory reset and do a minimal config (i.e. Wi-Fi and LAN settings).  Don't turn on any fancy features.

Hmm, I tried that and no luck, still only reading in the 300-400 MPS.  I then changed the router to be an access point, still no luck.  Any other ideas?

I forgot to mention that PPPoE will also drag down performance.

 

Have you enabled any other features on the router?  ReadyShare?

No, I have done a full reset several times, regular factory settings as both a router (double NAT) as well as an Access Point, and it is still losing 400 mps compared to the straight feed.  I would consider upgrading to a better router to avoid this, would an X6 still have this problem?

You should be getting around 900 mbits of wan->lan throughput (wired) with this router.

 

Did you try using different cabling?
