Question

New Router Switch

Hi so I recently switched my router from Rogers to a Fido CGN3AMF. I play games on my PS4 but as I recently switched, I got a good plan with good speeds. But for some reasons, my games lag a lot, my wifi speed is slower, and unlike my last router half the things in the port forwarding section of my router arent there. This happened a couple of days after purchase and from like 90mps I have gone down to 8mps. My ping in games is usually 90 or higher now. What should I do?

Clarification Request
A router switch?

If you are on WiFi some, not all! ISP supplied modem+routers can be sub par.

To test out if it's the WiFi or not, use Ethernet to connect the PS4 and test.

Port forwarding shouldn't be required. I have run into some gamers that want to host a game so maybe for them but PS4? Shouldn't require forwards.

HOWEVER https://www.google.com/search?q=Fido+CGN3AMF+slows+down doesn't give me much hope. Maybe they are just slow or throttle after so many megabytes?

Fix?

I think I found a fix, I factory reset my router and I am getting regular speeds now. Download is 90mps, Upload is 20mps. I hope this dosent happen in the future.

Could be.

That model was not on the list for the VPNFILTER EXPLOIT in the news but the fix you used is how you fix this exploit.

Many routers need a daily or weekly reboot due to firmware bugs. This is why I bet many folk reboot routers so often.
