Fiber/BGW210-700 problems on Apple devices
We have no problems with Windows devices. Browsing is fast.
However, for Apple devices (iPhones, iPads, and Macs), there is a problem. If I attempt to load the exact same page using Chrome on Windows and Safari on a Mac, it will load almost instantly on Windows while Safari sometimes sits there for up to 10-20 seconds before it's able to load. Oddly enough, opening up a 2nd tab in Safari and loading another page seems to "push" the 1st tab along.
This behavior isn't constant, but occurs roughly 75% of the time.
Speedtest.net on the Apple devices still shows very high speeds in the 300 mbps range. The issue isn't with speed -- it seems to be with the communication between the device and the gateway.
I've tried all the basic troubleshooting tips like restarting the gateway. It's not a gateway-specific problem. It's a problem with how Apple/Safari communicate with the gateway. I didn't have this problem with XFinity's router/modem.
I've tried disabling IPv6 with no success.
This occurs on all Apple devices, so it has nothing to do with location or distance from the gateway.
