I've had a lot of conflict with my ISP for getting proper speeds. After having the service line checked directly I realized that there are no problems with my ISPs services nor with any of their systems running to my home. The problem with my speeds seems to be my router/modem hybrid--which I've had multiple different models and have always had this problem. On both wireless and Ethernet the connection occasionally drops or the speeds dip altogether.
The big argument I've seen against hybrids is that they provide less processing power--missing an extra chip(processor)--which might be why the speed might be going down if the system has too large of a workload.
So which is better, getting some high end modem/router hybrid or a high end split router and modem?
Service Plan: 100mb/s.
- Average Down Speed: 50mb/s (wireless), 130mb/s (Ethernet).
- Average Up Speed: 10mb/s (wireless/Ethernet)
- Average Ping: 8ms.
This hybrid is compatible with all my devices. My current hybrid: Netgear C6300BD (Docsis 3.0)
