I need to hard wire in a computer in the house to our Hub4, we have used the cable which we were using for our Hub3 but the speeds are worse than before. We have just signed up to the Gig1 package and we're only getting 45mbps on that computer. I have a Cat6 cable currently
Cat 6 is more than enough to provide the service that you have.
Can you do the following on a computer which is connected directly to the hub https://samknows.com/realspeed/ post back the results i.e. Speed to hub and Speed to PC, as we need to narrow down is it hub or PC.

Ok so we did the test and it’s actually improved from earlier - so I’m guessing it was a blip. However given its connected to the hub directly I would have expected a much higher result? The cable is 15m, so I would guess there would be some speed loss due to that - but by that much?
