Internet Speed Issue

I have a customer with a very old Check Point Edge appliance.  They recently upgraded their Comcast Internet speeds from 20Mbps download to 100Mbps download.  When we do a speed test, it never passes 24Mbps download.  I took my demo Check Point 600 appliance to test and the speed tests jumped to 54Mbps, however, when we connect directly to the Comcast modem, we get 98Mbps download speeds.  Any ideas why the speed drops significantly when adding a device in between the Comcast modem and the network?

Recently encountered a similar situation with a client. It turned out to be that there was trouble negotiating speed/duplex between the client's firewall and the ISP. Once that was resolved, the issue went away. You may try checking that.
