Could you test your internet speed if you directly connect your computer to the network cable of your "Internet provider router" ? (without your Asus router).

You give few information to solve your problem... Maybe it's a problem with your computer, your router or your ISP connection.

As your router is a gigabit router, i think the problem is on your computer or with your ISP.

Connected to the Modem directly - full speed. My previous "N" class delivered full speed. Since there are many such reports I wondered if there were settings in the router and/or computer which might help?

Optimum's actual speeds may vary and are not guaranteed, as their website states. You may have everything working as expected, but its worth trying Benjamin Moreau's idea of bypassing the router and connecting your pc directly to the ISP modem to see if you get the same or higher speed. And since they offer a service at 50 Mbps, you might want to call them to make sure they configured your service for the correct speed.

EDIT: Sorry, looks like we were posting at the same time. Nevermind my comments.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

ANd if you test again behind your Router; is the bandwith correct ? As Stepen says, maybe the bandwith is not always @100 Mbits...

Try to check 5/6 times at different moment of the days.

Have you some "security services" activated on your Router (like Antivirus, IDS, etc...) ?

The service has been tested at many different times - always ramps right up to 50mb/s. The isp showed me I was getting 100 mb/s at the WAN. If I disable the router's firewall - same result, except that monitoring traffic thru the router on the wired connections improves - to the equivalent in kB/s of 50 mb/s.

Firewall back on, and tweaking some changes in the router firmware - particularly in QoS - and speeds are now anywhere from 98 to 117 mb/s. I don't know which settings made it right. Sorry. But thanks for your help.
