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.

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

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.
