so lately for no reason I did a check on my Deco M4. I took the LAN cable that comes out of my fiber optic box in the building, hooked it up to my laptop and did a speed test. I got 860Mbps which is ok cause I have a 1gbps line.
whats troublling is the performing the same test and just putting my deco M4 in the middle (still wired) I got around 260Mbps. so:
main ethernet -> my laptop yields max speed
main ethernet -> deco M4 port 1 -> my laptop hooked to deco M4 port 2 yields low speed
i repeated the test with several cat 6 cabled with several speed testing platforms and the results are all the same.
does this imply a faulty unit? am I missing something?
the only thing I didnt test it maybe repeat the deco test with its wifi disabe (if thats even possible) but it seems to me like it this cannot hurt the speed in such a big way.
I am also not sure if it was like that from the start or not... I have had the deco M4 for about a year now I think (maybe less)
your help is appreciated.
