    I have a Check Point 500 firewall. And I am getting slow download speeds. Now this piece of hardware is 10 years old, but should it be getting on average 4.2 Mbps download ( avg over 6 speedtest.net sessions to San Jose servers)

    Also when I do a speedtest.net test, I can get download speeds of 9/10 Mbps if I connect to Palo Alto. But if I choose San Jose, I get the avg download of 4.2 Mbps. Can someone explain why?

    So the Check Point 500 seems to be Capable of running faster. But most times when I download big files, like a Linux ISO, I have to wait 1 hr+.

    So I bought a new router, and when I do a speedtest.net test with it, I get 27 Mbps to San Jose. And Linux ISO downloads wait times are around 4 to 7 minutes.

    Should I throw away the Check Point?
