    Upload or transfer from the 940/40 circuit will be limited to around 4 mega bytes per second. (slow upload)

    Download from the fiber will be limited by the fiber upload speed. 

    And both will be limited by the VPN you are using. Which is likely 120megabit/s.

    Agreed, but when downloading from the 1GB connection side, I'm averaging 2MB. That should be in the 100MB range, which it is not.

    And the fiber is 1GB symmetrical.

    This a site to site Firewalla VPN tunnel, which is gigabit. Can you clarify this statement?

    That's the OpenVPN server speed limit on Gold:

    I think wireguard is now possible which should bump that to 500Mbps

    @Rich T. Thank you for your response. I'm still curious why I only get 2MB downloading from 1 GB network. 

    Do you happen to know of documentation on how to move the Firewalla devices over to WireGuard?

    It looks like it's in "early-access"

    In regard to the 2Mb download, did you run an internet speed test first? Id check that just prior to testing the site<->site just to make sure there's no an issue there.
