NETGEAR ProSafe™ Gigabit 8 Port VPN Firewall FVS318G lowers my internet download speed

[ Edited ]

Hello there,

 

I'm an amateur in this case so I need some help from you guys.

 

Its about my internet download speed. Speedtest says 16 Mbit...but I pay for 120 Mbit. Once I connect the DSL modem straight with my pc everything is working fine (arround 100 Mbit). The moment I put my NETGEAR ProSafe™ Gigabit 8 Port VPN Firewall FVS318G between them my dowload speed decreases to 16 Mbit. Upload and ping are okay....only the downloadspeed sucks!

 

I dont know what to do with the ProSafe to get the same speed as I put the modem right into the pc.

 

Can somebody pls. help my with this?

 

Many thanks in advance for your help!

 

Best regards,

Sato

Hi Sato1902,

 

Welcome to the community! Smiley Happy

 

The model of  the FVS318G that you have seems to be a version 1 (FVS318Gv1).  The FVS318Gv1 has a LAN-to-WAN Throughput of 25Mbps.  Kindly check the FVS318Gv1 data sheet here for reference.  Since you are paying for a 120Mbps of internet connection, you need to use a VPN firewall that has a LAN-to-WAN Throughput greater than 120Mbps.  

 

I suggest you either of the following NETGEAR VPN Firewalls: FVS318Gv2, FVS318N, FVS336Gv3 or SRX5308.  All of these firewalls have a LAN-to-WAN Throughput greater than 120Mbps.  Kindly access the data sheet below for more information as well as know their comparison:
