I switched to frontier fios from comcast. They installed a Zyxel HLA3105 and connected thei cheap ruoter via ethernet. They said I could use my RT-AC68W instead of their router.
With their router I got 39 mbps up and down. With my router I got 10 to 22 mbps down and 3 to 8 mbps (same as comcast results). all speeds were done on a wired connection.
What settings should I change to get full speed?
JA: How much experience do you have with this particular Comcast product?
Customer: 10 years
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: installed latest firmware
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?

If you were on a wired connection......theres isnt anythign you can change to get speed improvements.

its already auto optimized.

However, for every device in the daisy chain, does have an impact on latency.....and therefore throughput/bandwidth.

Afterall throughput metrics work on a time scale.

and when the data has to hop through MORE devices....then it obviously takes a teeny tiny bit longer for every packet.

multiplied by the amount of packets, it can add up

I understand that more devices could slow the speed so I my only changed was to replace the router between the computer and the HLA3105.
Tech Support Specialist: Quiksilver07070, Computer Support Specialist replied 11 months ago

okay....well, each router has its own CPU and software.

they are not all the same. routers/modems/wireless are all computers.....they have a CPU, they have RAM, they have an OS (called firmware) they also have storage in thr form of flash.

As we all know....not all computers are the same......routers/switches/wireless is no different.

So, if i was going to make a decision......i would say its the difference between the hardware in the devices, that will give you different results in the speed test.

I dont know how your making those tests either? are you using a website?

Those dont work all that great......and typiclal only show you the rate of the ISP, and not the actual LOCAL rate.

But, Typically the more expensive the unit.....the better it will perform

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
