Re: broadband speed

Sounds like the hardware is not up to it.  Are the laptops capable of 1GB connections, especially wired?

Re: broadband speed

Hi i was on to technical support the laptops are capable of 1fb on Ethernet. Actually set this up with technical support but still only 46mb.

Wireless adapter is Realtek RTL8723BE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC.

Just tried my daughters laptop also 46mb . Strange 2 laptops 18 months old and 1 laptop 1 month old all have same reading. Google nexus 6p 212mb.

Re: broadband speed

The Realtek RTL8723BE is a 1x1 (single stream) adapter 2.4Ghz only . 46Mbps is an excellent speed for this adapter.

What wireless adapter is in the other laptop?

What ethernet adapters are the laptops using?

The 46Mbps speed with the ethernet connection is puzzling as you are getting 212Mbps on the Nexus using wireless AC.

It might be worth trying another ethernet cable, ensuring it is rated CAT 5E or better.

Are both laptops showing 46Mbps when connected directly to the hub by ethernet cable?

Nexus 6p will have ac wifi transfer speeds , whereas laptops will have lower speeds as they are 2.4Ghz only.

Try a USB wifi adapter with 5Ghz ac capabilities .. something like this ... http://www.argos.co.uk/product/3389780

TP-LINKs Archer T2U comes with the next generation Wi-Fi standard - 802.11ac, 3 times faster than wireless N speeds. With 433Mbps wireless speeds over the crystal clear 5GHz band or 150Mbps over the 2.4GHz band, the Archer T2U is the superior choice for seamless HD streaming, online gaming and other bandwidth-intensive tasks.
