Not getting gigabit on Ethernet to router

Hi,

We recently got 1gig with hub 4, set to modem mode with own router it hits 700mbps, to test the speed I switched it back to router mode.

I've tested the speed with samknows test and it says 1050mbps, but with my desktop connected directly via 2 meter cat6a Ethernet cable with router in both modem and router mode I still only get around 700mbps.

I've tried multiple Ethernet cables and my laptop and getting the same speed.

Power levels are fine with downstream at +5dbmv

My pc CPU is i7 8700k 12 core 5.1ghz so that's not the problem

You need a VM person to look at that connection

Re: Not getting gigabit on Ethernet to router

On SamKnows real speed, I get 1100 m/b to the hub and 450 m/b to a wired old pc with a cat 6 cable. Laptop about 380m/b. I’d be made up to get 700 m/b tbh. On Speedtest it maxes out at 940 m/b..

Re: Not getting gigabit on Ethernet to router

Hello

Getting 940mb is quite normal that is due to that a gigabit ethernet has a potential frame throughput of 81000 per second and therefore a high throughput for actual data (about 118 MB/s), giving efficiency of 94%, or 940Mbps. The service that VM offer as 1gbps will be for multiple devices you will never get more than 940mbps to a single device the hub only has 1gbps ports.
