Why is my speedtest showing unexpected results?

Standalone mode: Speed tests sometimes make assumptions that there is only one link and therefore implement algorithms such as packet peering to measure the speed accordingly, which provides inaccurate results over bonding devices (sometimes lower, sometimes higher) when the BBNA is in standalone mode. We recommend a real file transfer and see the speed either through your browsers speed meter or through the user interface of your BBNA device. As an example, you can download a file from (such as Os X snow leopard) which is a large file.

Peered mode: In peered mode, you should be able to see the aggregate speed with most common speedtests. Please make sure you do not have an interface binding rule that forces the test traffic to go over only one WAN link. Also please make sure the “capture all” mode is enabled for your “Remote LAN”
