New router gives slower speeds


New router gives slower speeds

My C6900 router died so I got a CAX30, but my downloads speeds via ethernet went from 50MB/s (megabytes not bits) to a maximum of 20MB/s. The only time this changes is when I unplug the router and plug it in after 30 seconds, then I get a little bit of time with 50MB/s only for it to eventually go back to 20. What is causing this? I pay for 50MB/s download and I'm upset that a NEW router isn't getting it.

Re: New router gives slower speeds

The CAX30 should easily max out that connection. 

What firmware is on it? 

You do get the full speeds after a reboot? 

Do you have a screen snip of your cable connections page and the event logs? 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
