Poor ingress. Why?

I have Xfinity gigabit internet w/ no data cap, Arris SurfBoard SB8200 modem, NetGrear r7800 running OpenWRT 19.07


When I run speed test I get Download: 931.03 Mbps / Upload: 41.46 Mbps against and CloudFlare's  When I run iperf against my wan ip I get a very lousy  ~4 Mbs with a few spikes up to 9 Mbs.  


What gives with this poor ingress? 


(I'm trying to troubleshoot streaming HD video from my network to my friends network.  It was working good up till about 2 months ago.  I'm just now getting around to troubleshooting.)

Re: Poor ingress. Why?

Your cable may be receiving ingress from outdated phone lines or FM signal from nearby cell towers. Check out my post here:


To narrow the issue, I recommend hooking up to Ethernet, installing & then debugging by reading pingplotter's blog.
