Bandwidth lower than expected

Just upgraded our internet speeds from 100 to 600 Mbps. I’m only getting around 175. If I connect directly to our Spectrum router, I get the full 600. I’ve updated the firmware (8.1). PC is showing a 1GB network connection. Is there a throttle setting I’m not finding?

Hi Chris. Welcome to the forum!

What Peplink device are you using?

Balance 20

That would explain it - a Balance 20 is rated at 150Mbps of router throughput.

So your 175MBps of throughput you’re seeing is actually more than you would typically expect to see on that model.

The balance 20x is rated at 900MBps and includes cellular backup

Yes good point. I assume the OP has a Balance 20 and not a B20X but that isn’t a safe assumption.
