I have an E1200 hooked directly into my Arris CM820A. I recently upgraded my internet DL speed from 60mbs to 100mbs. For some reason, the E1200 will not allow 100mbs to pass thru and I only get 50-60mbs. If I bypass the E1200 and plug the Arris directly into my computer, DL speed jumps to 100mbs. Can the E1200 be reset or ?? to allow 100mbs DL speed or is a different router now needed to handle this higher speed? … read more
