Can anyone else try this? I just happened to run a speed test in a browser of a wired PC to mLabs and the results were far off from what my Fingbox reports -- browser test was much more accurate while Fingbox is much lower. Same testing parameters. Just wondering.

    I have noticed the same… Fingbox speed test result is almost half of the speed reported by other tools.  Maybe it’s running a half-duplex speed test?  Or maybe Fingbox doesn’t have a fast enough CPU?

    Hey @BobF4321
    May I ask you to run a speed test via Fing Desktop and via Fingbox and let me know the results for both?
