Re: Slow Wifi

What is the Wi-Fi speed using a decent mobile phone about 8 feet away from the Hub ?

Re: Slow Wifi

Definitely a Laptop problem then.

You need to go to the laptop manufacturers support site or user forum.

Re: Slow Wifi

Surely if I am paying for M500 I should be getting at least 250Mbps plus all the laptops and phones have issues with slow and intermittent wifi. Working from home is becoming a real issue and I upgraded from the M200 to solve my problems thinking this was it.

Re: Slow Wifi

The problem with Wi-Fi is that it can be brilliant at breakfast time and useless by lunchtime and you haven't changed anything, BUT, something somewhere has changed, then you can spend hours and even days trying to find a fix for something that can be totally out of your control.

If you remove all the internal walls, electronic and electrical devices, metallic pipes and conduits and wrap the whole building in a thick lead shield you will have a good chance of getting decent Wi-Fi from a VM Hub.

Many people have accepted that the VM Wi-Fi is very poor and have purchased third party equipment that is much, much more powerful than the VM supplied kit and once set up have wondered why they waited for so long.

Re: Slow Wifi

If you have another laptop check the speed with that connected to the Hub with an ethernet cable.
