GIGABIT Trouble: Due to an electrical storm/lightning, I am now on my fourth Gigabit modem from Comcast; and the same low flow persists; not more than 115 download hardwired.
Here's what I notice: I NOW Have TWO Home Networks;
my usual home network, and the same network with a '4' after it (signifying the fourth modem).
Upon looking at the properties of both,
the '4' network is rated for gigabit speed,
the other home network is rated for 300 send/receive.
Even the supervisor on the phone said that was odd...
Has anyone else seen this issue?
I am now using
Cat8 Ethernet Cables, and
GE Quad shielded RG6 Coaxial.
QUESTION: RG11 - Has anyone Run RG-11 Straight to the Modem? It's about 12 feet from the closet where the cable comes in, to the modem. I currently have the coax going into, and out of a surge protector for added em/filtering. This is what I might try next, unless someone else has tried it and realized it doesn;t work due to reflection? signal bounce? Anyway, I might buy 15ft RG-11, run it from the closet to the surge protector, and run another (3ft) RG-11 from the surge protector to the gigabit modem. YOUR THOUGHTS, PLEASE?
