Best to use ISP DNS.
U dunno how to properly configure 3rd party DNS ≠ ISP DNS better.

Pi-hole the best. If u kiasi can use pi-hole with ISP DNS as well.

Not true.
OpenDNS keep me and my family safe.
Other than that, speed wise is always very fast.
Eh Singapore ISP by default block pornography on their DNS. Y u need use open DNS one?

SH DNS is known to be very unreliable.
When other SH user facing internet connection, those who use 3rd Party DNS do not suffer the same fate.

Pi-hole even better. Can choose what to block. Also can see which device using what website

Make sure you ask for free on site support else SH going to charge you per visit. The tech support probably will use your router directly plug into his laptop do check the speed and more than 60% is consider pass their spec. The first tech came to my house with laptop speedtest result same as mine. The 2nd tech support came with a laptop show speedtest result over 800mbps. They conclude my pc unable to hit limit. Case closed.

Recently upgraded to 1 gbps also. But my speed is capped at 100mbps. Did some research online, can't really seem to find a solution.

I install TP Link powerline adapter (TL-PA9020P Kit) which is capable of 1 gbps connection. From ONT connect direct to powerline adapter near entrance of my home (7 years HDB 4 room). 2nd adapter is in my common room, connect direct to my PC.

I use the TP Link app to check the connection from entrance to room, it was about 800+mbps. But when i run speed test on my PC, it was only at 100mbps.

My MB is Asrock B360M Pro4, the onboard LAN is Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (7) I219-V which supports 1gbps connection.

I used the new CAT 5e ethernet cables that came with the powerline adapters.

I change the Speed and Duplex setting under the advanced properties of network adapter to 1gbps Full Duplex.

Ethernet status detect speed at 1gbps too.

Not sure what else i missed? Any advise?

Other people were also getting this speed, try on a laptop and see, if still same then its the powerline problem.

Chwaee
Speed was reduced by 90% see picture from gigabit speeds

Verified Purchase
I bought this kit to connect my bedroom computer to my router that is in my living room (upstairs vs downstairs). I bought the highest speed rated powerline I could find, this AV2000. I expected decent speeds be I was utterly disappointed. I have verizon fios at gigabit speeds, and when I do a speed test when my laptop is connected to the router I get about 800 mbps down. When I test my speeds using this powerline, I am lucky to get 80 mbps. What a disaster, that's 10% of the speed! And this thing is rated for gigabit speeds! What a disappointment. Next time, I will just work on running a line, or doing wifi repeating with top of the line gear, since this powerline is garbage for speeds.

I should mention that it was pretty easy to setup, and it does actually work, which is kind of surprising. That's why I'm not giving this product 1 star. It would be ethical of them to advertise real world speeds instead of the theoretical max which will never be achieved.

Last point, don't spend extra money on this for the speed rating, save your money and get a different one (unless this has features you're looking for)

after ding ding dong dong for 2 week.
they manage to fix just the upload portion.
now upload up from ~200mbps to 950~970 mbps but download still stuck ~250mbps - direct connected to ONT.
it clearly backend issue but they insisted on sending another technician to come down and verify.

Since they want their technician to verify just no choice. The most they can do is change ONT and ask backend to do reprovisioning.

They will send another support with laptop able to get over 60% of the speed which is passing their spec.

if you take note, the technician ip range is allocated in another network segment.
so no matter what time they test also max out.

They will send another support with laptop able to get over 60% of the speed which is passing their spec.
