I recently purchased a ProSecure Unified Threat Management (UTM)  model UTM5
When connected right from cable modem I get 95MB download speed test.
When connected to the UTM5 I get 16MB... Much Much less.
I updated firmware, and even tried to disable un necessary items?

Anybody else have these issues and or have thoughts of remediation.

Performance
Type:             Antivirus throughput
Value:             15 Mbps
Type:             Stateful throughput
Value:             90 Mbps
Type:             VPN throughput
Value:             40 Mbps

Can you disable AV? As you can see, max throughput is 90 Mbps, so you will never achieve the speed you are looking for.

Wow this device --- (errrrrr)

Where do you set these settings, I saw where you can disable IPS...
Should I return this device, is there a better one? Does this device allow trunking or aggregating two ports to modem for fast throughpout. bet yet 3 or 4 ports ruled into 1

I have a Cisco DC3939 (Cable Modem /with Voice)
Plugs into Netgear UTM5
1 Cat6 line goes to 24 port Netgear switch (JGS524)
1 Cat6 line goes to R7000 Netgear Nighthawk

7-8 Wired Connections go to Netgear Switch
10+ wireless devices go to nighthawk.
Nighthawk is in bridged mode, and not a DHCP Server.
The UTM5 is.

Removing the UTM5 gives all wired devied 95MB +
With UTM 15-18 MB

The UTM5 just doesn't have the resources to manage AV scanning without seriously compromising throughput.

If you want a UTM that will, then you'll have to spend a lot more money than the UTM5 cost...

That's why I posted those figures. They came from Netgear. Keep in mind that any UTM has throughput limitations and usually the less expensive ones give you the least. Unless you truly have a need for UTM device, you are better off with another edge device to manage your access.
