Same here but not on X BOX. My desktop tests well with 300 down and 23 up.My two nvidia shields were testing at around 260 down and 22 up hard wired but the down has shrunk to less than 120 on the shields. Downloads that were taking 90 seconds at 11 mbs are now taking 5 minutes at 650 kbs to 2 mbs.Up is still good at 22. Units are hard wired with cat 6 and 7 ethernet. Throttled?
I am wondering if this problem correlates to the couple of maintenance updates we had in our area recently. Very early morning updates and reboots of the system.
Is this not a public forum?
Listening to internet radio right now.Receiver connected via ethernet.It is working but the orange light in the back of the router is flashing instead of the green. When the orange light is flashing when using my streaming devices it will not connect.Cisco xb3 router. Wi-Fi is always good but my speeds with Wi-Fi and ethernet are almost the same. Do I need to get a new router? Router has a Mfg. date of 4/15
@locoenlacabesa. FWIW, if the ethernet cable is indeed the issue, CAT6 cable will do. Are you certain that your receiver has a 10/100/1000 (gigabit) ethernet port ?
CAT7 is unnecessary overkill for gig. Costs more too.
CAT6 is good for 10 gig. His connection is limited by the speed of the modem's config file / router ports anyway.
I noticed the decrease in speed about 5 weeks ago,didn't think much of it until I started checking a couple times a day.Like I've stated,desktop is always good at a consistent 300 down ans 23 up. Nvidia shields are the problem.Getting the orange light in the back of the router on these ports and speeds are almost the same as wi-fi. I'm getting 112 down and 12 up on a crummy firestick on wi-fi.I have cat 6 and 7 cable already. I'm not getting what I pay for.
Two techs came out today,ran a new line from pole to house.Nothing has changed.
Are you in an outage area?
Thanks for reaching out. If the issue is only on one device, there may be some issues with that device. Scheduled maintenance can affect services, so we can check on the account to see if there is anything going on in the area. If you're experiencing speed issues, feel free to send me a PM with your first and last name and we can get started with some troubleshooting.

I think you want to debate. Definitely while CAT6 will work with 10Gig you should use a CAT 7 for the frequency as well as distance and insulation if signal, etc. CAT 6 will work. i do not know what his speeds are which is why i have not been specific in that aspect. Neither do i know if it is his cable. My recommendation is if you're running 10 Gig to use CAT7. Is it's better suited for 10 Gig. IM just a developer and former communications specialist so maybe I'm wrong. I am not employed by Comcast. Im just making a suggestion. You can look at the specs for yourself and make the determination.
I just looked at the specs and you're making no sense.
CAT 6 is rated for 10GBase-T up to 50 meters /164 ft. Personally I don't know of any SOHO network that uses anything longer than a 50 m/164 ft Ethernet cable without a switch or router in between nodes. There's also CAT6A that's rated for 100m/328 ft.
Besides, not only are there no devices that currently support the CAT 7 connector standard, "CAT 7" isn't even recognized as such by the Telecommunications Industry Association and the Electronics Industry Alliance, which both set standards for telecommunications industry.
