slow speeds

Getting 26.08mb/s download and 10.67 upload speeds when paying for 200 mb, really not on as am an OU student needing to upload, download and complete online activities, have noticed a regular complete loss of service taking a reboot to restore

Re: slow speeds

How are you connecting wired or wirelessly?

If wireless, try wired directly to the hub with a Cat 5e cable or better with a device equiped with a gigabit ethernet network card.

I would test the wyred speeds during the morning and again during the evening peak to check for any contention issues.

Re: slow speeds

Probably not, 84.25Mbps is a good speed on the 2.4Ghz band.

The 2.4Ghz band is narrow and prone to interference from neighbouring wireless networks and domestic appliances like A\V Streaming devices, Baby monitors, Chordless phones, Microwave ovens, Plasma TVs, Security systems etc.

This can make increasing throughput using channel bonding (40Mhz wide channel) problematic as you are taking up over half of the available spectrum making it prone to interference. So 80 odd Mbps would be a reasonable speed using two wireless streams using a single channel.

Speed will depend on your client devices with wireless AC clients able to achieve 200Mbps+ whilst a lowly single stream wireless N devices achieving around 35 to 40Mbps on a single channel on the 2,4Ghz band.
