Gigabit through internet switch
I recently had Uverse gigabit fiber installed and I get around 950mbs according to the AT&T Speedtest site on my main computer sitting next to the gateway. The gateway is a model 5268AC. I have internet, Uverse TV and home phone through it. My wife's computer is at the other end of the house so I bought a Linksys 8 port gigabit ethernet switch, model SE3008 to connect to her computer. I ran 5E cable to the switch and from the switch to her computer. I can only get around 93mbs on her computer. I can take my Macbook and connect to the cable going from the gateway to the switch and get 930mbs, but coming out of the switch I get only 90mbs. I have tried several cables and several ports on the gateway and on the switch. I contacted Linksys support and they have no idea but sent me a replacement switch. It does the same. Is there some kind of incompatibility with the gateway and an internet switch?
