I have a Firewalla Blue installed on our network.
It is connected to a TRENDnet TEG-S82g unmanaged switch which is where the Edgerouter Lite is also plugged onto. This is an unmanaged gigabit switch.
Monitoring is being done via the simple mode (not DHCP mode).
We have Xfinity and should be capable of getting ~500Mbits down. Before installing Firewalla Blue, I was regularly measuring 470-480Mbits+ download measured throughout the day.
I noticed recently that the download speed graph started measuring around 320Mbits consistently. I realized this coincided with when I plugged the Firewalla Blue in.
I decided to try turning off monitoring on the Firewalla Blue just now and doing a speedtest.net test.
With the monitoring off, I got around 530Mbits.
Turning monitoring back on, it drops back to 320Mbits.
Could the switch be contributing? Firewalla Blue is going to require the one port on the switch to be doing 500Mbits in both directions... would that be a problem for the TEG-S82g?
I have 105 rules in effect (most of those are for a specific IP address which is not the one I am testing from).
