Quite slow tonight

Speeds are slowing right down tonight, half the normal. Yes, it is a wireless connection as no LAN cable available, but all the ones shown for comparison are wireless too:
Sun 29/03/15 20:42 18.18 Mbps 21.11 Mbps 2.10 Mbps Plusnet
Sun 29/03/15 20:40 21.14 Mbps 23.60 Mbps 3.00 Mbps Plusnet
Sat 28/03/15 15:02 36.04 Mbps 36.55 Mbps 6.92 Mbps Plusnet
Fri 20/03/15 16:20 36.93 Mbps 36.99 Mbps 7.49 Mbps Plusnet
Thu 19/03/15 19:35 36.42 Mbps 36.87 Mbps 7.13 Mbps Plusnet
Thu 19/03/15 16:58 33.88 Mbps 34.93 Mbps 6.94 Mbps Plusnet
Tue 17/03/15 21:37 26.28 Mbps 37.51 Mbps 8.49 Mbps Plusnet
Tue 17/03/15 21:36 27.08 Mbps 37.63 Mbps 9.10 Mbps Plusnet
Mon 16/03/15 19:39 34.30 Mbps 33.80 Mbps 6.56 Mbps Plusnet

Sun 15/03/15 21:20 35.60 Mbps 30.94 Mbps 7.02 Mbps Plusnet
Only user in the house, so it isn't that either  Sad

Re: Quite slow tonight

Hi Markfish.
Diagnostics aren't showing me any connection problems at all.
I'd see if you can get your hands on an ethernet cable as the next step so we can differentiate whether this is a wireless or a connection problem.

Re: Quite slow tonight

Slow again tonight, half speed again. Still no long enough LAN cable, but InSSIDer says I am on channel 6 and other neighbours are on 11 & 1.
I know wireless isn't a good way to do speed tests, but as said before, all the speed tests logged beforehand were wireless too.

I do however have my SamKnows graph though, my upstream speed is badly suffering as well and that was one of the main reasons I came to PN, for the higher upload speed.

Re: Quite slow tonight

It's difficult to diagnose speeds over wireless, as even though neighbours may be on another channel, it's possible that the problem could be a multitude of other things.

I appreciate that Tony, bur the Samknows box is wired to the router and is also logging the speed drops. Just as good as a speed test I would suggest.

Re: Quite slow tonight

Not much better tonight really, even on a wired connection, the upload is pitiful, a full 10MB down on my original connection.

My BQM graph from yesterday is also showing a vast increase in what appears to be congestion and the red packet loss too  Sad . Had fibre for over 2 years now and these are the first slow speed issues. I hope they are soon resolved.
