CenturyLink Fiber and Netgear ORBI 100Mbps cap

CenturyLink Fiber and Netgear ORBI 100Mbps cap

I am using my Netgear orbi instead of the provided modem/router combo CenturyLink provides. I don't expect 1000Mbps by any means but I would expect to see speeds higher than 100Mbps. It appears that is the cap at which I am getting.

 

Any thoughts?

 

I have it set-up to use PPPoE and VLAN tagging, but everything else is default.

- Is this a wired or wireless speed?

- What speed do you get when you do speed test in the Orbi app (Internet Speed) or in orbilogin.net under >>ADVANCED>>Setup>>QoS Setup?

This is wireless speed. Attached are the two different tests:

The OOKLA test looks better but still not where I would expect. I'd expect soemthing at least at 400Mbps download speed. It sounds like that's what others are getting too on CenturyLink Fiber with orbi, removing the CenturyLink modem/router from the picture.
