Xfinity Speed Test

Wondering if other people see this with the Xfinity Speed test. I use a Laptop with wireless fairly new 2015, My Internet package is 250 mbps & 10 Upload. So when I do the speed test sometimes both IPv6 and IPv4 will never get over 140 mbp but Upload is fine. So I have to restart my pc for the speeds test to go up way over 250 mbps. Just wondering if this is a normal for Xfinity speed test website?

Wifi is known for its unreliable support for speed tests.

For a test, does a computer hardwired directly to the router / gateway device with an ethernet cable have the same problem ? Have you tried other test sites ? Same thing ?
