    Question regarding my xbox1 and PS4 download and upload speeds

    Qos settings? Don't know about Sony, but Microsoft has previous history of problems with Arris equipment. Change wires, make sure they are not defective. Connect each console directly to modem, to rule out router, plus use open DNS in consoles settings.

    Need help SGB6580 died. GAMER /POWER user to buy cable modem and router or all in one

    WiFI vs wired for gaming. Short test

    Wired, but it all depends on your environment. For gaming I will always use wired, it has a lot less hassles than wireless. Of course I live in building with at least 40 other WiFi networks that cause constant interference for me!

    This company tells me "Video card is deteriorating" .... Is this some BS trick or wha

    Another vote for scam (bait and switch) Sounds like the standard con, and even if you decide not sell it. They will charge you a significant amount to shipped it back. They will make you pay two day shipping price, when they will send it back to you using media mail

    Upload speeds are terrible

    Did you try your ISP own speed test, did you check to see if there's any conflict between your router and modem. Did you upgrade the firmware on your router or modem? Unfortunately there's usually no quick fix, Good Luck.
