    Which IP do we use in FWG when it's in router mode?

    Firewalla

    if you are doing local testing, it will be the gateway IP (of your network segment) of the Firewalla Gold.

    This doesn’t work with the Internet IP address - right?

    I've read that ISP's cheat and grant traffic priority to speed test websites to give their customers the dishonest appearance that the boosted results are accurate measurements that represent the customer's typical internet speeds...does the choice of speedtest providers have this in mind?

    I've read good things about self-hosting your own instance of librespeed is one such way of effectively combating this, just to put this out there in case the issue hasn't already been addressed....

    Want to have speedtest cli on Firewalla Gold? This will tell you how fast your internet connection is right on Firewalla (no wifi or Ethernet involved)

    Firewalla will remove anything installed after upgrades so you can install a script to reinstall for you after firewalla upgrades and possibly reboots. Seehttps://gist.github.com/mbierman/9ac6a35622ee5a0c631ed6f6ad74b722.

    Then you can run speedtest.

    speedtest --interface=eth0

    Or

    speedtest --interface=eth1

    if you have dual WAN and want to test WAN2
