Active wired or wireless TV receivers reduce Internet download by 5 Mbit / second ?
Is this to be expected with ATT Uverse Internet?
I had Uverse installed a few days ago:
Video quality exceeds the quality of SuddenLink ( Good! )
Internet download speeds are *much* slower than SuddenLink's solid 50 Mbit / second ( This is expected )
Each active TV receiver reduces Internet download by 5 Mbit / s ( Bad! Not expected )
The residential gateway 5268AC has 4 Ethernet LAN ports, one connects to the WAP VAP2500 wireless access point. Another connects a wired VIP1200 receiver and another connects to a switch distributing my home wired and wifi network.
Assuming this is an IP multicast issue, then why would and active wireless TV receiver, that does not use my home wi-fi or Ethernet, will also reduces my home network's wireless Internet download by 5 Mbit / second ?
It acts like the switch in the residental gateway is a dumb switch ( IGMP V2 or V3 not supported ) and the gateway switch is muticasting all active IP TV channels on ALL Ethernet ports. Is this how ATT Uverse is expected to work?

Can aynone comfirm that each active TV receiver is expected to reduce Internet download speeds by 5 MBit/s per "Active TV Receiver" ?
Or suggest networking solutions to optimize download speeds?
Thanks in advance for any tips or suggestions,
