Re: poor wifi speed after router reboot

You need to speedtest with a wired connection, not wireless (as already explained to you)

Re: poor wifi speed after router reboot

So wired speeds are fine then.

If wifi is slow you need to look at optimising the wifi on the hub or investing in your own router or mesh system to improve the wifi connectivity and speeds.

Re: poor wifi speed after router reboot

OK,

Forget Wi-Fi devices for now.

Forget games consoles for now.

Stick to one testing PC.

What is your contracted speed ?

Which Hub do you have ?

What speed do you get at >> speedtest.net << with a direct connection using a Cat 5E/6 cable between the Hub in Router Mode and a 1Gbs capable Pc/Mac/Chromebook and no other devices connected ?

What speed do you get at >> OHV << with a direct connection using a Cat 5E/6 cable between the Hub in Router Mode and a 1Gbs capable Pc/Mac/Chromebook and no other devices connected ?

Can you Login to the Hub Settings and navigate to the Connected Devices page - what does it report the 'connection speed’ as for the cable connected device you used for the speed test ?
