Available download speeds with SH3 in modem mode

Since switching my existing SH3 to modem mode and using it in conjunction with a Netgear Nighthawk router, I have noticed that my download and upload speeds have dropped.

With the hub used in normal operating mode, I’ve been getting around 380mps but WiFi coverage has been poor due to the layout of my house - hence the decision to switch to modem mode.

With the Netgear router connected and in modem mode, I’m getting around 150mps.

Might these two things be connected?

Re: Available download speeds with SH3 in modem mode

What do you get wired either direct to the Netgear or the hub in modem mode still?

I haven’t tested it that way but I will do and I’ll let you know.

Another poster mentioned that there was a 'Qos' (Quality of service) setting that should be disabled to allow full speeds.

Worth checking on your Netgear Nighthawk.

I will try disabling it and will report back as to my findings.
