My cable company decided to increase our speed to 200mbps from 100mbps. In the past few years we rarely got above 95mbps, but with qos I consistently got speeds in the 70s and 80s with A+ bufferbloat rating.
When I received the email about the upgrade I diabled qos and did some testing. I noted no change in speed. I chatted with the isp and they were able to see 200 at the modem. My next door neighbor has a cable company router as well as modem and he is seeing 200-235 down. (with crappy bufferbloat because he has no qos).
I would like to get faster speeds (with qos) and not have to rent a cable company router. I welcome any ideas on how to improve my speed.
I am using an HP T620Plus and Intel 82571EB/82571GB nic. I thought this would be sufficient for speeds greater than 100. Any ideas?
BTW the speed with the pakfire speedtest is the same as my browser, so the speed hurdle is this side of the modem. Modem is E31U2V1, Ubee I think.
