We have just had our wifi installed, we purchased the M500 package. The engineer advised that to get around 500 it would need to be cabled directly to the router, so I tried this but we are only getting about 80mb, when wirelessly connected we are getting around 120-140mb
This is an inconvenience as we run a lan cable from one room to another but the speeds aren't good enough for what we need to do.
80Mbps is always a suspicious number suggesting that the device/connection is being limited to 100.
Often this can because the cable you are using is only cat5 - or it may have failed. Try a new Cat5e/6/7 cable and see if it improves. Maybe just a short one whilst you test standing near to the Hub.
Also, is the device actually capable of going above 100 or is it limited by only having a 10/00 NIC card? If you know it has a 1GB card check in the settings whether it may have defaulted back to 100Mbps - also make sure the drivers are up to date.
