    I got a question for you guys.

    When using speedtest.com one of my modems is faster in both dl and ul than the other but the slower modem access's sites and works within those sites faster than the modem that tests out faster. Does that make any sense?

    Where are you obtaining the modem specifications and is there an authority that policies what they are saying? What models and manufacturers?

    I'm not obtaining modem specs. Just ran speed tests through https://www.speedtest.net on two different routers. Sorry, meant to say router rather than modem.

    ...not really a tech person, but i assume the only variable is the router (same modem/pc or device/network)

    ..afaik it does not make sense, unless your network or your isp was undergoing more traffic during one of your test... unless you did multiple test with each then i have no idea, sorry..

    Just realized something. Could hooking up 2 WiFi connections have a negative impact on an Ethernet connection on the same router?

    Are you connecting to the router using Wi-Fi or Ethernet?

    Are there firewalls built into either router? If so disable any filtering either router is doing and reduce it’s functions to only Nat and test again
