    Back in 2015 I wrote a couple blogs about using the web interface of a modem.

    All modems dont use the same IP address. And, it can sometimes be a security issue to allow LAN side computers to directly access the modem via an IP address.

    As for measuring peak bandwidth to see if you are paying your ISP for too fast a connection, routers from Peplink/Pepwave can do this on their own. This is something best done in the router rather than a computer. Here is a screen shot of what the report looks like

    I use their cheapest router which maxes out somewhere between 100 and 200Mbps.

    Their higher end routers go faster. I am in much the same situation as the person that asked the question, wondering if I am paying for speed I am not using (other than when running a speed test). Seems like the answer is yes in my case.
