Re: Slow internet

Hi Dave,

 

You haven't really given much to go on here... can you be more specific? 

Do you mean you should be getting 36mb but aren't, but if you connect to a personal hotspot (4g or something?) its faster?

 

How are you accessing the internet, over wifi? Have you tried via a direct cable to the router etc?

Has it always been slow or just started?

What are you using to measure speed too?

 

thx ms

Re: Slow internet

Re: Slow internet

If you can its best to test with a lan cable, with the router plugged into the master socket, although i the BTW test gives you 30 on a 36meg line they are probably not causing you issues.

 

If it is intermittent then it may be noise on the line, or it may be effected by your PC, its ifs doing lots of updates etc.

 

One thing some people find works is to change the ir DNS settings to use google on 8.8.8. (dont have the link but if you search 8.8.8.8 on the forums it should give a guide to changing DNS settings!)

 

What speed do you get if you go to speedtest.net ?

thx ms
