Slow ORBI wired speeds

I have the orbi rbk22, the wireless internetspeeds work flawlessly, but when i try to connect my laptop to the orbi via ethernet, the speed is capped at 100mpbs when i look in network and sharing center. My internet plan is 500mbps download which i get connecting to my modem, but i get capped at 100mbps when i connect to the orbi. WHen i checked in prpoerties in network and sharing center, it also says ipv6: no internet access, while ipv4 works. Does anyone know how to fix this?

Re: Slow ORBI wired speeds

Does your ISP support IPv6? If yes do you have the correct IPv6 in the web GUI under >> ADVANCED >> Advanced Setup >> IPv6 ?

Re: Slow ORBI wired speeds

What FW is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?

Also try disabling Daisy Chain as well.

Re: Slow ORBI wired speeds

  1. Who is your ISP? Do they support IPV6?
  2. IPV6 should not matter for speeds. I get the full speed on my desktop via ethernet and IPv4
  3. Have you checked if your network card is capable of 1Gbps? Most old cards are only 10/100
  4. I had similar slow LAN speed and I disabled the daisy chain topology and I got full speed
  5. On the router Advanced => Advanced Setup => IPv6, choose internet connection type as DHCP, IPv6 DNS as automatically get from ISP, and LAN stup as autocnfig
  6. Then test at https://test-ipv6.com/ to see if you get 10/10

@ShankarHokie  @ekhalil  My isp is Rogers and yes it does supports ipv6 as well as my network card because ipv6 work and i get the full 500mbps when i connect to my isp modem. I went on to the web GUI and put IPV6 to auto config but it still says ipv6 no internet connnectivity on my laptop. And how do i disable daisy chain? And another piece of info which could be useful is that i connect the laptop to the main orbi not the satellite.

Re: Slow ORBI wired speeds

Look at the modem device that the Orbi is connected too. This modem box should have a stick and branding on it. 

Unless you connect the Orbi router to a wall out let then, don't worry about finding the Mfr and model.

@ekhalil under Routers ipv6 on WAN it shows 2 up addresses, but under Routers ipv6 address on LAN it says not available.
