Xfinity Gigabit download speed only reaching 200 mbps

I am currently using the Netgear CM1000 modem with an ASUS AC68U router. After numerous speed tests, we never hit over 300 mbps. Upload speeds reach over 40 mbps which is perfect. Wondering what the issues are? QoS is off, Firewall is off, NAT acceleration is off, jumbo frame is off. I'm new to this and I'd like to learn a real resolution.

@Dabearz15,

Looks like you have some poor signal levels. Your downstream is marginal/poor and your upstream is too high. This is typically because of a wiring configuration issues or old/substandard coax and or connectors. It could also be something completely beyond your control. You'll probably need a tech to sort it out.

 

I've asked a Comcast employee to help you. You should expect a reply in this thread. 

 

Tip: If you need service, sign up for the Service Protection Plan (SPP). It's around $6 a month and you must keep it for at least 60 days after your service call. If you have SPP, you won't incur a service charge. You can sign up when you schedule an appointment.
