Help With AT&T 2GB and 5GB Mixed with ASUS GT-AXE16000

Hello, I want to inquire about the GT-AXE16000 I recently purchased and AT&T 2GB and 5GB speeds offered at my home. I signed up for 2GB because I got a good promo where I live, and currently I have the Nokia BGW320-505 model in the house. I connected the 5GB port from the BGW320 to the 2.5GB WAN on the Asus router. Will I get full 2GB speeds once they come out and provision it tomorrow or do I have to still do the Dual Wan (1 ethernet cable in WAN and 1 ethernet cable in LAN 4). I assume the BGW320 hardware has a 5GB ethernet so just plugging that to the 2.5GB wan should work? Essentially I Have CAT8 from 5G port of BGW320-505 --> 2.5GB WAN Asus GT-AXE16000 --> 10gb Port in Z690 Mobo PC. I am getting capped at 1gb up/down so what am I doing wrong (dual wan not enabled in Asus router).

You should - at least between the BGW and the Router - I can't say the routing performance of the router itself...

report back what you see once everything is provisioned up...

Router is probably best you can get now, GT-AXE16000. Just not sure why I am not getting 2000/2000, stuck at 1gb/1gb

What speed does the AXE16000 webUI System Status report for its 2.5G WAN port connected to the Nokia port? Should be 2.5Gbps, yes?

You should get 2.3gbps up/down. I have frontier 2gbps fiber, no issues in consistent 2.3gbps.
