wireless connection awful speeds

Unless i'm connected to my hub by an ethernet cable the speeds i'm getting through wireless are really terrible, i have ran lots of broadband speed checks and am getting less than 320kbs, this is on a 30mb connection.

 

Were as if i'm connected by my ethernet cable i'm usually getting around 27mb speeds, this is making having a wireless connection not worth having and annoying. it was fine when we first got broadband in but the last two weeks have been shocking.

 

any help please ?

Re: wireless connection awful speeds

Having same problem since last saturday night. I've given up trying to figure it out. Desktop is connected directly to Super Hub, laptops wireless, all speeds are nothing like they were last month.

Hi jlitwin1972,

 

If you haven't already done so, please post a new thread detailing your issues, and we'll look into this for you. Piggy-backing onto an existing thread in this manner makes it more difficult for us to assist.

Hi Smudge1979,

 

Have you tried checking for interference on your channel and changing to an uncongested channel, using a program such as InSSIDer, as detailed in the FAQ?

 

Thanks.
