  1. Are there any pipes or electrical conduits in the wall? That could be a huge factor. Check if the same thing happens in other walls, even if the router is further away.
  2. Check what others have said. It might be related to one of Let's encrypt root certificates recently expiring (On September 30). Are you able to access valid-isrgrootx1.letsencrypt.org and expired-r3-test.scotthelme.co.uk? Let's Encrypt is a relatively new Certificate Authority and many devices running old operating systems don't have their new root certificate.
  3. Yes, and then you only need to add rules for what traffic goes where or if it just acts as a backup connection (from a quick look, this is what the video shows). If you can connect to the isp routers while they are also connected to pfsense (before putting them in bridge mode), check if the internet works for both of them when it stops working in pfsense. If you could share your ISPs routers models, I could help you with some research.
  4. I can't think of anything that your PC could be doing. Maybe @Alex Atkin UK@Donut417or @Falcon1986 have an idea of what this could be.
  5. Check if you can put the two ISP routers into bridge mode. That means that whatever you plug into it's ethernet ports get the public ip and the router just acts as a media converter (coaxial, fiber, etc to ethernet). Then in pfsense you should have a public ip from both ISPs, once that is done, you can create rules to send some traffic to each ISP. Since you want to use an app from spectrum to access media, I recommend you figure out which ip's it connects to and create a rule that sends traffic to those ip's via the spectrum line.
  6. Splitting bandwidth is possible but the best way is to use QoS because QoS lets everybody use all the bandwidth but it priorities what you specify. You want to look for a router than can do either one of them. I would use pfsense since it lets you do both and many other things.
  7. I find it weird that your phone only has ipv6 but your desktop is dual stack (has ipv4 and ipv6). You mentioned that the first test that you ran on your PC came back as 9/10 and later came back as 10/10, if you run the test multiple times does it switch between the two often? (like sometimes 9/10 and then 10/10 and then later back to 9/10) You are going to have to see what your ISP does because this seems like an ipv6 related issue (my guess is something related to NAT64/DNS64) and the only things that you could really do is make sure that you have ipv6 and ipv4 on and are using yo
  8. Have you tried removing any switch all together and connecting the computers directly to each other? I recommend you try booting to linux from a usb and running the tests there to see if it is software or hardware related.
  9. Did you change your DNS server? Does it only happen when you use your router (not the ISP one)? check your score in test-ipv6.com. It could be some ipv6 related problem. Specifically with NAT64/DNS64. You also forgot to attach the result of the ping. And why are you using ping -l 512?
  10. This depends on the subnet mask that you use. For local networks you should only use IPs defined in RFC1918, those are: – – – Most home networks use 192.169.x.x/24, that gives you 255 ips. I like to create different subnets for different things and use different address spaces. Like: IoT - 192.168.10.x/24 Guest - 192.168.0.x/24 Main/Secure - 192.168.1.x/24
  11. Might be because if ipv6. If you want to make sure that it is ipv6, go to test-ipv6.com.
  12. The NAT type is probably strict due to CGNAT because of ipv4 exhaustion. But it sounds like some other problem is happening.Are playing on a console or PC? Are you using ethernet? Which VPNs have you tested? is it free?
  13. I have never used it but, Mac Installers is an option. From what I can see they don't have big sur, but you could download catalina or ask them for big sur
