I just bought and setup my new router today.
I got it from Walmart today for $125.
We were told it's a pretty decent router, especially since it's a trade up from Comcast's default/basic modem/router.
For some reason though, the speeds are slower now. Dropped from 20 mbps to about 8 mbps.
This new router is called, I think, ARRIS: Surfboard SBG6580 (Lost the box)
I placed router in a good place, no extra shit running, etc. I took all precautions.
Can anyone tell me why this would happen? Can it be that it's just updating still since it's new?
Here's a picture.
I just moved the router into my room and plugged it up via ethernet cable rather than wifi. It ran at about 6 mbps on wifi, but now with the cable the speedtest is saying it's running at about 80 mbps. But, the other pc's in my house are running at around 6 mbps. This is so confusing.
