Re: Slow internet

Your stats are fine.

You really need to test the speed whilst connected directly to the hub by ethernet cable. Wireless is affected by many external factors which makes it practically useless for testing your Internet connection speed.

If the wired speed is poor during the evening it would be worth doing a quick wired test in the morning before you go to work to check for any utilisation issues. If you get headline speeds in the morning, then it looks like your are in the unfortunate position of having a utilisation issue.

Wireless reception is affected by many factors like Range, Client hardware, the Topograpy of your home, and the big killer, Wireless interference.

First of all, I would ensure the Hub is placed in a central, open position, away from obstacles and electrical devices.

You could try changing the wireless channel manually. Downloading a wireless scanner like InSSIDer for Windows or WiFiAnalyser for Android would help by showing you the surrounding wireless networks, the channels they are broadcasting on, and their signal strengths, so you can select the best wireless channel. Bear in mind the wireless scanner will not pick up interference from sources such as A\V streaming devices, Baby monitors, Chordless phones, Microwave ovens, Plasma TVs, Security systems, etc.

Setting the Hub's radio setting to 300Mbps (or 40Mhz channel) is not advised on the 2.4GHz band as it takes up over half of the available spectrum, making it prone to wireless interference..

Using the wider, usually less congested 5Ghz band could help, if your client devices support it.
