I have a Nokia BGW320-505 router to support fiber service from AT&T. For the first day of ownership of my Firewalla Blue+ I was very disappointed with the performance of the device. However, upon further troubleshooting I discovered a 40-60% packet loss being experienced when communicating with the Internet. I was almost to the point of returning the device when I happened to think about the fact that I had plugged it into the 5 Gb port on the router. When I plugged into a standard 1 Gb port everything has worked like a charm!
I suspect the speed negotiation did not work properly. This may be a good tip to note somewhere in the documentation.
