Question about maximizing download speeds with XB6 + xFi Pods
I have gigabit service with an XB6 router and 6 xFi Pods spread out across a 5,200 sq. ft. house. I think the Pods may be slowing download speeds, at least in some cases.
For example, this morning I was sitting at the kitchen table. It's about 40 ft. from the XB6 gateway, and there is also a Pod plugged in about 2 ft. from the table.
I did a speed test and got only 98 Mbps. I remembered that the Pods are limited to 100 Mbps. I checked the app and sure enough, my laptop was connected to the Pod, not the gateway. So, I unplugged the Pod so my laptop would connect to the main gateway, and did another speed test. I got 550 Mbps.
Now I'm wondering where else this might be happening in our house. How do I determine where I need Pods vs. where the Pods may actually be slowing download speeds that I would be getting from the gateway itself?
I guess I could just unplug them all and test download speeds in every room in the house. If I get less than 100 Mbps in a room/location, then that might be somewhere that would benefit from a Pod?
