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?
