I decided this is not a Snap! or 2 Degrees problem, it is an "any other router" used with Snap! 2 Degrees UFB problem.

 

 

 

I don't like the 7390, I have used it for 3 years from ADSL to VDSL and UFB. My Xbone constantly has moderate NAT so I changed to a Netgear Nighthawk R8000.

 

 

 

I can only get 100Mbps up and down through it using speedtest. I know my line speed with speedtest and the 7390 is 200+ up and down.

 

 

 

Is there anything I can do with my R8000 to get the full bandwidth or am I stuck with the Fritz?

 

 

 

I also tried another router a Dlink AC750 and got the same 100Mbps max throughput.

 

 

 

Interestingly at my Xbone doing a network speed test I get with the Dlink 50 down 60 up and with the R8000 80 down 40 up. Consistent testing also. Everything is RJ45 wired no Wifi.

 

 

 

Any ideas anyone?

what is the speedtest? 100mbps or 93mbps?

 

could be a cabling issue or an issue with the xbone as you have tried 2 different devices and had the same result

why seriously? some cables don't have all the pairs connected and are limited to 100mbps as the max throughput

Because ignoring the Xbone, on a PC directly connected to the R8000 I get the 100Mbps when it is using the exact same cabling everywhere as I was with the Fritz.

 

 

 

All I have exchanged is the Fritzbox for the R8000.

I cant say 93Mbps for sure but it was a smidge under 100. Does 93Mbps indicate something specifically?

~93mbps would indicate the port was defaulting to 100mbit instead of running at gigabit.

I just had a thought, in the R8000 software under QoS you can run the speed test and it returns 100/100 there, not even from my PC. That is the test from the R8000 to the ONT only.

 

 

 

I will change the cable that came with the R8000 anyway just to see.

Yes good idea if that cable link from the ONT is bottlenecked then everything flowing out from there will be also.

200 UFB Snap

 

After trying the AC3200 X6 R8000 Netgear and the Dynalink AC750 and over 15 minute span testing ookla getting 11/40 50/32 32/80 complete rubbish but never over 100/100 I reconnected the Fritzbox and first test hit this.

 

 

 

No cable change nothing.

 

 

 

So the other top $$$ routers just cant handle the really top speeds.

I have a Netgear R7000 and always hit 200Mbps even over wifi (my fibre connection speed) so I think you've still got something configured wrong.

 

All ports on the R7000 + R8000 are gigabit.
