Sophos XG Home throttling bandwidth

XG Home firewall is throttling my bandwidth. I was able to get ~900MB download on a speed test from my computer through the ISP modem (connected directly). When I was connected through my home router (wired) without the XG home firewall in the network I would get ~880MB download. When I put the XG firewall into the network I now get <300MB. I checked all the traffic shaping configurations that I could find, but I could never get it to where it should be. Is there any traffic shaping configuration that I missed or configured wrong? Thank you in advance for any assistance.

  • Hi Robert,

    yes, I mean CPU. You will also need to disable speedstep so the CPU is running at a reasonable speed when idle otherwise your throughput will suffer.

    What does the CPU utilisation report when you run your tests on the existing hardware?

  • I have not looked at the CPU utilization report. I will have to do that later. As for disabling speedster? Is that a Sophos component in the XG software?

  • it was an auto correction function, speedstep in the bios.
