1Gig Speed

dux_0-1612776499634.png

 

new to 1Gig and seem to be getting extremely low speeds. very underwhelmed. 

Any recommendations on what to do would be very welcome. 

Have a ASUS mesh coming off the router which has worked well on improving coverage

Put the router in router mode and check what speed do you get on https://samknows.com/realspeed/ with direct wired connection from PC/Laptop to router using a Cat 5e cable or better with a 1Gbps capable Ethernet network card?

  1. Make sure the cable is Cat 5e or better
  2. Make sure your PC/laptop has a 1Gbps or better network card
  3. Make sure Hub is in router mode
  4. Disconnect all other Ethernet cables when running the test

Here's the test from SamKnows. 

looks like a restart has improved performance. 

Will try and put into modem mode shortly. 

thanks

Re: 1Gig Speed

Your getting the full speed coming into your router ok but lacking some out the other end. Did you complete the test with a direct cable from PC/laptop to the router with a Cat 5e cable or better and a 1Gbps capable network card?

Also if using an Asus router turn off QoS and gaming mode if you have them mate.

 

What is the model of the Asus mesh you are using?

Not getting much better? Your getting the full speed. The throughput from any Virgin hub will be 940mb (Max) and your almost right on the money. Also remember you aren't going to get anywhere near that with a wireless connection unless you have wifi 6.
