    I'm trying to figure out why I have random drops of internet speeds when I'm watching Twitch, Netflix, or just loading up a web page. Sometimes I'll have blazing fast speeds, other times it takes almost 30 seconds for google.com to load a search. Below are my settings and home

    ISP: Comcast

    SpeedTest.net Results: ~30 Mpbs down; ~7 Mbps up; 11ms ping

    Router: NetGear Nighthawk R7000
    Some Settings:
    WMM Enabled (WiFi - Multimedia)
    QoS upstream and downstream disabled
    UPnP Enabled
    Dynamic DNS enabled
    IGMU Proxying disabled
    MTU at 1500 bytes (tested this from tutorials and this should be optimal)

    Modem: Motorola ARRIS SURFboard S86121

    Affected Devices: Everything, from 2 PC's with Windows 10 and Android Tablets, to Mac laptops and iPhones. (on both 2.4GHz b/g/n and 5GHz a/n/ac bands)

    If you need any more info, I'll be glad to give it!
    Thanks for the help!
