Router cutting speed in half?

Go to solution Solved by mynameisjuan,

Router to modem is negotiating to 100meg. 

 

I wouldnt reset your router, just for it to gig on the WAN port. 

Hey guys!

 

So recently I've restarted my router as I was moving some furniture around, after that I did some speed testing on the net, and it has dropped from 200+ Mbps to only just about 95 Mbps, is there any specific setting in my router that does this?

I have the Asus RT-AC87U. I've tried to connect my PC directly to the internet, and it shows back with 200+ Mbps, I've already checked my router for anything like speed limits and so on, which is all disabled. 

Any idea what this could be?

Hi,

Sounds like it has somewhere reverted from 1Gb to 100Mb upon restart, can you check if your pc is connected to the router what the network properties say about connection speed? It should say 1000/1000Mbps.

It does say 1000/1000 Mbps

Where did you get 95mbps? Did you check more sites?

Maybe a router reset would help...

I always use speedtest.net, that's the only site I've used, even when plugging in my ethernet cable directly to the net, it's speedtest.net that shows me my 200+ mbps.

I'll try to reset

Same issue happened with me, resetting it helped me out.
