Hi guys/gals

Apologies if this has been asked before but I cannot find anything and unfortunately Google has not been helpful. I live in a small complex and we had a 100meg Openserve line put in around 1.5 years ago when 100meg was the max speed available from Afrihost. We have now upgraded to 200/100meg package with Afrihost but I have a feeling that the original Alcatel Lucent I-240G-D modem that was installed with the 100meg line is capped at 100meg. I run multiple speed tests and while i get close to 100meg for the upload (90 to 95 on average) on the download the max I get is in the 90's. Both the Alcatel modem and my laptop were connected to a Mikrotik switch in the gigabit ports so no bottlenecks there. So I have a strong suspicion the Alcatel Lucent I-240G-D modem is not gigabit. Can a anyone confirm this before I log a ticket with with Afrihost? Thanks all knowing wise mybroadband users :D

Plug your laptop directly into the Alcatel and check what speed your network connection shows...
