Looking forward to it. It looks like most people reached at limit of 8Gbps down.
Just got my ER8411 on Monday. I haven't fully moved over to it yet, but it's sitting on my desk for testing.
- TP-Link ER8411 router
- Wiitek SFP+ to RJ45 module to connect Sonic ONT to the router
- MikroTik CRS312-4C+8XG switch (8 10GbE ports, 4 combo 10GbE or SFP+ ports)
- Short 10Gtek SFP+ DAC cable to connect router to switch
- TRENDnet TEG-10GECTX 10GbE PCIe network adapter (Aquantia AQC107 chipset)
I used the Misaka Network, Inc. Speedtest server in San Jose, using the Speedtest Windows app. The Sonic speedtest server was very slow at the time (<2Gbps).
So far I haven't been able to get over ~8Gbps in any speed test. However, the speed I get while directly connected to the ONT is the same as the speed I get via the router and switch, so they both seem sufficient to fully handle the traffic for a 10Gbps connection. The speed test does seem to take a bit longer to hit the top speed when testing via the router, but it does hit the same max speed compared to directly connecting to the ONT.

I don't think we'll ever be able to get full 10Gbps speed over a standard internet connection... It's a lot
of packets to route. At the standard 1500 MTU, it's 14.88 million packets per second, each of which has some overhead and requires some CPU time to handle. "Jumbo frames" / 9000 MTU helps a lot on a LAN (getting closer to full 10Gbps on a local network), but you can't use it on public networks as basically all core routers only support 1500 byte packets.
