I have two Ethernet devices plugged in. PS4 and PC. Using the PC I get around 300 or so Mbps, and PS4 is usually about 50 higher or so. I assume that is because I'm not going through a browser to test it.
I cleared out the wifi yesterday. New name, new password, and I have about 8 items on it. They typically get around 30 Mbps.
I have ATT u-verse it is a 5268AC. The speed tests on it from AT&T to it seem to suggest I am getting the paid for speed. So my only guess is the router/modem is not damning the speeding.
Firmware I think is the latest with 220.127.116.112191-att.
So anyone have any clue what settings I should be changing? I think all cables are 5E. It is laying down on an open shelf. I bring it out and sit it up right but that doesn't seem to change really anything.
So before buying a new router, or spending a long time talking to AT&T thought I'd check here first.
Are you talking about LAN or WAN throughput? Wifi is a different beast, depending on your environment 30mbps might be the best you can get.
For LAN throughput check review sites about your router. A gigabit interface does not mean gigabit throughput.
If it's about WAN throughput you will have to accept that not every server on the internet will give you 1gbps.
If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
