slow speeds after upgrade

hi since upgrading  a few months ago to vivid 200 my speeds have now dropped by almost 50%

i used to get over 200mb before the upgrade, but now its around 90-110mb still better than some on these forums but still at almost 50 quid per month for just internet i kinder expect much better.

ive tried meany things from upgrading my Ethernet cables to buying a new router and using the super hub as a modem as meany suggestions have said its better that way.

im now just fed up with it tbh.

Re: slow speeds after upgrade

Hiya bodybagz

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to read that you are not achieving the up to 200 Mbps broadband speeds.

 

I've checked your connection, the line and hub have come back as fine. The traffic on the network is running low which is good.

 

I appreciate all the checks you have completed so far. Have you tried a speed test direct to the Super Hub (disconnecting your own router and leaving the Super Hub in modem mode) to see if the speeds are the same? 

Do you notice this speeds at all times of the day?

Does the PC/laptop you are testing from still show a gigabit LAN card?

 

Let me know how you get on

Sam

Re: slow speeds after upgrade

hiya sorry its been sometime since i posted but ive been testing more and have found some interesting things tbh.
so when i use the super hub in standard mode i get 217mb download and 11mb upload which shows that the hub is fine but believe me its not,its very laggy and latency is very high(and as a gamer this means no fun at all)

so ive started using a test called DSLreports which tests something called bufferbloat(this seems to be latency caused by the hub not being able to set traffic properly) ie QoS.and causes the packets to basically get stuck,

so ive since tested this using the super hub in modem mode and using a asus dark knight router instead,
so how did my test change well quite drastically tbh by using the QoS i was able to set a limit to 100mb download and a 10 mb upload speed which has made my latency go from over 400ping to around 50 ping and my buffer bloat was almost removed sadly QoS wont fix it completely.

so DSLreports uses a ABC lvl to show you quickly were you are and obviously A+ is good and D is bad.below is a link to my newest test

something i should have put was before changing my router to modem mode and adding the asus dark knight i was all C on my test results and keeping the full limit of speed to max giving would still harbor C results across the board,
