Slow LAN Speeds

I'm supposed to have somewhere around 200mbps download speeds.

 

Speed tests on the WiFi show correct speeds, anywhere between 190mbps and 210mbps. However, when I plug my laptop in to the modem, I'm getting speeds around 30mbps. Every once in a while I'll get 150-200mbps on the wired LAN, but it consistently sits around 30mbps. The modem I have is a Comcast provided device. My laptop Wireless NIC and Ethernet NIC are both gigabit (confirmed and tested on many different networks).\

 

Would I be better off getting my own modem? I hate to be paying for the bandwidth if the modem provided by Comcast isn't capable of handling the speeds.

Re: Slow LAN Speeds

I'm experiencing the same EXACT issue. but on my desktop PC. All my other devices get desired speeds but the device I use for work. Thus far support hasn't been helpful although I'm supposed to receive a call within the next couple of days. Considering switching to my own modem as this might be my issue
