Thanks a lot this works with my problem .

@LTS_Tom I have the same problem with my pfsense protectli box and xfinity internet. My 150mb down has been cut in half, upload is fine. I’ve done what you referred too here but nothing has worked. I also ran a speed test from within pfsense speedtest-CLi and my download is normal, what gives? I can connect my laptop directly to my cable modem and my download speed is normal but when I reconnect my pdsense to the modem then connect my laptop to pfsense I’m cut in half again.

Did you follow the CodelQ / FQ_Codel video and have you tried tweaking the setting at all?

Yes, and I remembered that I have an UniFi USG, For laughs I hooked it up, and guess what, it also has the same issue, my download speed is cut in half.

My TinFoil hat is really on now.:wink: Could xfinity be throttling my download speed or something else?
