Gigabit speeds and routers
I signed up for Gigabit service (FiOS) about 15 months ago. Since then, our wired service has been in the 700-800 Mbps range, when I bother to check.
I recently picked up a Netgear Nighthawk X6S from Costco and was farting around with it (I like it so far; wifi is a bit better than the TPLink it replaced). Most notably, I've noticed that wired speeds via the Nighthawk are on the order of 260-320 Mbps; whereas if I connect directly to the FiOS router, I get 700-800 Mbps.
It's hard for be to believe that you lose *that much* headroom by adding another router between yourself and the gateway. Is there potentially a setting I'm missing?
If it matters, here's some other facts:
- I'm running a PiHole, connected to the FiOS router via ethernet cable
- All wifi runs through the Nighthawk
- Both routers are at my desk, so the cable run is very short
- No service issues or connection issues with any other connected device on the network
