Really? A N300 getting 240 Mbps? Given the 300Mbps is download+upload I see that hard to believe unless you are talking combined figures, which people on forums rarely use.

As a half-duplex interface, it can achieve full speed in either direction or half speed in both directions simultaneously. E.g. in my example, 240mbps download and 0 mbps upload, or 240mbps upload and 0mbps download, or any combination of the two, e.g. 160 down and 80 up.

It's the same as half-duplex 100mbps ethernet is not 50 down plus 50 up.

In reply to a post by panda:
Only traffic that has a destination to somewhere that isn't connected to the switch will need to traverse the 100Mb link to the router.

Thanks, that's what I hoped, I was thinking of doing something similar myself.

The Openreach modem maxes out at about 60mbps in router mode
Really? I've seen you say this a few times. Got a link?

Only from my own tests. I'm not aware of anyone else doing any tests that either confirm or contradict my results though.

Should be easy for anyone who has a hacked modem to do a speedtest. According to you, over 60Mbps wouldn't be possible?

Should be easy enough, yes.

In my case my HG612, latest revision and firmware, in router mode, any WAN to LAN transfers maxed out at around 60mbps (actual IP throughput was perhaps 60.4 but never even exceeded 62) and there was high latency through the modem. Speedtests (web based) would show around ~56mbps

In bridge mode, IP throughput was 77.3 mbps and web speedtests showed 74-75.5mbps. This was done without changing any other settings or even rebooting the modem, though later I did a factory reset and repeated the tests since I was rather disappointed the first time round.

IP profile via BT speedtester was showing 77.43 throughout and (or whatever the maximum was, I can't recall exactly) and line sync was 79999/20000.
