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.

try after you turn off the IPS.

Turned of IPS in the firewall rule. Still only have ~240MB download.
for home use the recommendation is the fastest CPU you can get without going above about i3, you don't need computational power. I use a XEON.
Okay, I understand. I am looking at the Intel Celeron J4125 processor.
If you wish to use your 1GB/s internet to the maximum for one user you will need lots of MHZ.
You mean the CPU? This one I'm looking at is 2.00 GHz.
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.
I upgraded my Protectli Vault to the newest one, VP2410.
J4125 Quad Core up to 2.7 GHz with 8GB of RAM. I also installed a Samsung 256GB SSD.
I installed SW-18.0.1_MR-1-Build396-396 and currently have my computer connected to the LAN port and the WAN port connected to the ISP provided modem. Although I can get in to the firewall gui and make changes to the configuration, I can never get my computer to go out to the internet through the firewall. I am using it like a desktop firewall for my computer only. Any ideas as to why I have no luck getting out to the internet?
Thank you for any insight.
I found the problem with the install. I was making changes to the network configuration from the console once it booted up, instead of through the webgui. Now it is working fine.
