I have 1 Gigabit switch connected to the ARRIS TG1682G modem (via short Cat5e cable). The speed of the computer (using Xfinity speed test) attached to that switch (long cat5e ethernet cable) is ~200 meg (download) as promised.
I have a long Cat5e cable running from the ARRIS TG1682G modem to another [different] Gigabit switch upstairs (just updated from slow switch). When I run the same test (using Xfinity speed test) I can only get ~92 meg (download). (This is the same speed as the older switch.)
I have restarted everything and nothing is eating bandwidth while I test.
I am not sure why so slow..... thoughts?
Solved! Go to Solution.
What is the exact make and model number of the new switch ?
Hmmm... Perhaps there is a problem with the "long" ethernet cable that goes "upstairs" ?
FWIW, I have read a lot of info in the past about cat 5e and cat 6 cables being mislabeled fraudulently....YMMV.
Maybe there is a broken wire(s) that you can't see ?
Good luck with trying the swap !
Ha ! Glad you got it figured out !
