    If you can, unplug firewalla from C7 and plug it into another port;  See if the speed changes.  We suspect something may be related to the port negotiating to one hundred megabits instead of gigabit. 

    Next, when you are testing, make sure you are relatively close to the router and there shouldn't be much back ground traffic.

    Thanks for the quick response. I moved the Firewalla to another port directly on the C7 router and ran speed test again. Same results ~ 77Mbps. It also seems to slow down all wireless traffic. i.e. I ran speed test from my Iphone with and without Firewalla installed with same results. ~ 111Mbps reduces down to ~ 77Mbps with Firewalla installed.

    Any other recommendations?

    Thank you.

    @Gene, double-check if your network is clean, meaning when you are doing testing, there is no significant background traffic.  Also if possible test using a wired connection is recommended.
