Speed Limitation

Dear Expert


We are using Fortigate D-200 firewall. Recently we have up-graded our internet Bandwidth 50 MB to 100 MB. 


But internet speed did not cross 45 MB .Although we have disable traffic shipper feature globally . 


We are not understand why internet speed not utilizing  up to 100 MB  .

If the ISP's gateway/router device has not been power cycled since the speed increase, I would do that first. 


On the CLI perform diagnose hardware deviceinfo nic <inteface name>


Output should look similar to this:

If there are no error check the interface configuration, eg.


config system interface edit "wan1" show

and look for any speed, inbandwidth, and outbandwidth lines.


Further troubleshooting may including direct connecting a laptop to the ISP gateway/router and running speed tests, contacting the ISP to confirm their equipment is properly configured, suspecting a possible network switch issue.
