Hi, so i recently upgraded to an XB7 from an XB6 - my plan went from 1.0 to 1.5 as well. But I dont see any changes in speed when i go to fast.com or ookola. I get about 900Mbps-1000Mbps, which is fine, but i was already getting that prior. These are all hardwired to modem too. Any thoughts?
A few questions and comments:
1. Is the device you're connecting to capable of speeds above 1Gb/s? Many are not.
2. Try running two tests simultaneously on two devices and add the two together.
3. Are you connected to port 4 (the 2.5 Gb/s Ethernet port on the Gateway? The one with the orange/red line beside it? The other ports are 1 Gb/s, but can be used for a test with two or more devices at the same time.
thank you i will try these - was not aware of the port 4. so only 1 port will support the faster speeds?
Yes, but to attain 2.5 Gb/s on Port 4, you also need to have a 2.5 Gigabit Ethernet adapter in your computer, or a 5 or 10 GigE adapter that can negotiate a 2.5 Gigabit connection.
