I use a Netgear CM1000, on the approved list, with a Netgear AC1900 R7000 router hardwired to my Desktop and see the same speeds. I've contacted support to see if I can get a technician to come to my house and check the speeds up to the wall so I can see if it's my equipment or something else, but that requires $10 a month "advanced care" since I don't use their equipment. I bought my own so I don't have to fleace equipment from you, so you want me to pay you anyway to come and check the connection to my wall? Mind Boggling.
@Boo51, are you experiencing slow speeds on a hard-wired connection or are on WiFi? If you're experiencing this issue on WiFi, can you please hard-wire a laptop or PC directly to the modem and provide speed test results for us? We suggest using the Cox Internet Speed Tool, http://bit.ly/2VsdGbX. -Kevin M. Cox Support Forum Moderator
I'm paying for Gigablast (1000mbps) and I can't get above 10mbps when I've used several speed test sites. Tomorrow I'm trying disconnecting everything and hard-wiring the one PC, but I doubt that's going to raise it TEN times average. If Cox is advertising this, maybe there should be a class action site. Unfortunately, my only other choice is CenturyLink. Plus people/companies are sending me e-mails with PDFs for tickets, etc. and I'm not getting them when I put in my Cox e-mail address.
Multiple devices. I have my personal laptop hard-wired and can only get 10mpbs for download. And the NIC is set to 100Full. My wireless is disabled on the device. My wife's iPad can get up to around 300mbps. My work laptop can do about 400mbps. The laptop downstairs can do 54mbps, but it only has a G NIC so that would be correct. I can get NO where near 1000mbps on any device.
Straight to the point, I have an Asus RT-AC68U and it has a hardware acceleration (NAT Acceleration) option I can control based on my downstream. If I'm paying for more than 200, I can turn it on but it effects some things like timing on Parental Controls and whatnot. When I had 300 before I left Cox, it was on and I got the down I paid for. This is an advanced suggestion and you'll have to to research on your equipment to see if this is your issue.
