Internet speed .

My Hardwired Computer gives me readings of 87mbs download and 11 upload, I'm paying for 200, an engineer called this morning done some adjustments and received 211 mbs, 20 minutes after he left it's gone back to 87 mbs, does anyone know why, and what can i do about it ?

Re: Internet speed .

87 sounds like you have a 10/100 Ethernet card in your PC to receive 200 you need a 1 gig card

20 minutes after he left it's gone back to 87 mbs, does anyone know why, and what can i do about it ? < < If you answered his above then is your equipment capable of speeds over 100mbs, do you have gigabit ethernet?

Also please post some connection stats and possibly set up a broadband quality monitor see here

If you are on a windows PC just look in control panel / device manager / network adaptors

Or

Control Panel \ Network and Internet \ Network and Sharing Centre 

then on the right side you should see something like this

dfgdfgdfgdfgdfdgfgre.PNGMine is called VM yours will most likely be something different but just click on it and you will see something like this

ddsfdsfdsdsfdsfdsfdsfdsfsfdsfdsfsdf.PNG

As you can see mine says Speed: 1.0 Gbps

Let us know how you get on

Re: Internet speed .

Thanks for. Your help, luckily it turned out to be a faulty ethernet cable between the modem and computer, it's all fixed now and didn't cost much thankfully. ☺
