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.
