Arris NVG599 Passthrough Setup for Eero Pro 6E

I have the Internet working on the Eero Pro 6E and I have passthrough setup.  Do I need to change anything?  Speedtests show 90mbps but downloads are slow for files and only reaching about 26mbps.  I can't tell for sure if the Eero is giving out the IP addresses or it the Arris is:    This is my ip address connected to the Eero.   Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::8d0b:bf7:c92:d78c%4
   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.4.24
   Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.252.0
   Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : fe80::6697:14ff:fe16:6db2%4
                                       192.168.4.1

but on the IP Allocation tab, it shows this:  192.168.1.64 / eero

Connected to VPN and downloading Ubuntu (same computer as above.)

So, utilizing the VPN is "fixing" it.  So, are there any QoS settings enabled on the eero that perhaps going to VPN is bypassing?

I don't suppose you know the actual server names you're connecting to so you can check to see if you're getting different IPs for those servers via VPN than when using the AT&T DNS servers.

Umm, up until now you've been showing us wired speed results. 

The two TaskManager graphs show Wifi.

Confused.

QoS is not on, on my computers or in the Eero app.

The Eero app shows that my ISP DNS is provided by 192.168.1.254.

The computers are getting a different DNS server:

SSID: Mxzxx
Protocol: Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac)
Security type: WPA2-Personal
Network band: 5 GHz
Network channel: 36
Link speed (Receive/Transmit): 1300/866 (Mbps)
IPv4 address: 192.168.4.24
IPv4 DNS servers: 192.168.4.1
Manufacturer: Broadcom
Description: ASUS PCE-AC68 802.11ac Network Adapter
Driver version: 7.35.351.0
Physical address xxxxxxxxxxxxx

ProtonVPN assigns an IP address to whatever of their servers that I connect to, so yes, it would use whatever DNS they have.

I'm sorry, you missed my point.  I know that the DNS server will be different.  What I'm asking is if you know the exact DNS names of the destination hosts you're trying to download from so that you can compare the ANSWERS (i.e. the IP addresses) that you get from the DNS server while on VPN vs those you're getting from the eero (at 192.168.4.1), who is most likely forwarding requests to the AT&T Gateway at 192.168.1.254, who is forwarding the requests to 68.94.156.11 or 68.94.157.11 for resolution.

I am expecting that you're going to completely different servers via VPN.  Actually, even if the IP addresses are the same, due to geo-routing these days, you could still be going to different servers.

ipconfig /all | findstr "DNS\ Servers"
   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 10.2.0.1   DNS Server on my computer when COnnected to VPN.
   DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.4.1

I'm not sure how to find what you're asking JefferMC,   Could you either tell me how to do it, or how to test on a server that you know?

Rather than checking via the DNS, when you (probably) don't know the actual server names you're downloading from, you could use a tool like NETSTAT to see what remote IPs your software is connecting to: open a CMD window in Administrator mode, and enter NETSTAT -b.  Look for lines that are owned by your downloader (the application executable appears in brackets under each line it applies to).  Note the foreign addresses.

I connected with ProtonVPN and downloaded files with Microsoft Edge.

I didn't use 4K Downloader for anything now, because that still only 25 mbps for Youtube.

Here is Netstat -b for downloading the newest GPU drivers from Nvidia through VPN: 

[msedge.exe]
  TCP    10.2.0.2:63803         63.140.36.101:https    ESTABLISHED
 [msedge.exe]

 [msedge.exe]

One, you need to do the same thing with the VPN down if you can figure out which hosts have something to do with the driver download.

63.140.36.101 Adobe (per Arin)
192.229.211.70 Yahoo (per Arin) (likely an ad on some page)
sfo03s07-in-f115, appears to be sfo03s07-in-f115.1e100.net so Google  (it may be in San Francisco due to the sfo)
20.42.65.85 Microsoft (per Arin)
ec2-34-205-91-201 AWS (ec2 is AWS's host naming convention) it might be in useast
104   not enough to go on.

Unfortunately, none of these are conclusively connected with your driver download, and only one of them is located anywhere in particular.  If we knew which to focus on, that would help.  Edge (as with any browser) will connect to a lot of sites.

If you knew which server you were actually measure the speed of transfer with, when on VPN and when not on VPN, and could do a traceroute to them when connected that way, we might actually get somewhere.

Hi JefferMC,
