I purchased a EdgeRouter X  so that I can take advantage a 200 MEG connection. When I plug directly into the cable modem I get about 175. When I plug the router in, I get about 10 mbps down and 13 up. This router is brand new, replacing and old Netgear ac1200.

I did upgrade to the latest firmware with no change.
