When I am directly connected to my uverse gigafber router via cat6 I get the following speeds.
When I connect my EdgeMax to the Uverse Router using cat6 and then connect my computer to the EdgeMax using cat6 I get the following speeds.
Any thoughts or advice?

- Configure the Uverse router for bridge mode.
- Enable hardware acceleration for NAT in the EdgeRouter. You didn't indicate what model, but you can find model-specific instructions here.

Sorry I said earlier it was an Edge POE, but it was in another post.
I ran the following commands... (The rest of my config is pretty standard, DHCP, DNS, couple forwarded ports...)
configure set system offload ipv4 forwarding enable set system offload ipv4 gre enable set system offload ipv4 pppoe enable set system offload ipv4 vlan enable set system offload ipv6 forwarding enable set system offload ipv6 pppoe enable set system offload ipv6 vlan enable set system offload ipsec enable commit save exit

There are people in these forums that can analyze EdgeRouter configurations at a glance. If you dump out the entire configuration, sanitize it (edit out any passwords), and upload it to a new post in this thread then one of them may well spot something that can be improved. This thread shows several ways to dump out the configuration. Posting the configuration between spoiler tags will make the post easier to read.
Also, the performance you're observing is suspiciously close to 100 mbps. I'd try a different Cat-6 cable between the EdgeRouter and the Uverse box.

I'm not certain it is a problem, but I'm suprised to see bridging in the configuration. I understand bridging to use the CPU to retransmit L2 frames to the other ports, which limits performance. I wonder if having bridging configured is causing the configuration of the hardware switch to be ignored.
