Good evening. I have recently upgraded my package to 500mb speed and it has since got slower (only I could get such luck) - To try and fathom what it might be, I ran some tests and the only thing that stands out is that my connection says partial service only. I have reset the router to factory settings but I still have the issue. Is this the problem why I am getting 120mb down instead of the higher speeds I was expecting. The change in package was 2 weeks ago so I have persevered but its getting frustrating now.
Can you do it again like this _______________________
As you expect >100Mbps then connect a 1GB enabled computer/laptop, with up to date drivers, via a known good and working Cat5e (or better) ethernet cable, directly to the Hub which you have put into “modem mode” (see VM website for “How To”). Test at speedtest.net (not using their App!) to your nearest VM server - try on 2 different browsers.
If they are still low – boot the device into windows safe+networking mode and try again.
There are many posts on here where unknown/flaky software, old network card drivers, corrupted browsers, bad cables or other connected devices are limiting speeds on tests.
Report back what that gets.
