Re: 200mb speed but only getting 70mb

Would need to check the signal levels if could go to http://192.168.0.1 or if using modem mode http://192.168.100.1 clicking router status top right or bottom of page depending on hub [no need to login - depending on hub] and if could copy/paste the downstream, upstream, network log,and operational config don't worry about the formatting we can easily read it.. try and avoid using screen shots..

Re: 200mb speed but only getting 70mb

Hi tyger79,

Checking your service from this and both Hub and local circuit report back in good shape, so headline speeds should be achievable.

Are you still having issues, could you confirm that the wired device is Gigabit capable and wired with Cat5e or better cable?

Many thanks

Re: 200mb speed but only getting 70mb

Has your pc/laptop only got a 10/100 network card ?  Are you using powerline adapters at all?

Re: 200mb speed but only getting 70mb

Mmm... is it a Dell perhaps.  They have started running "traffic management" software in the background of their 'puters - often unknown to users.  Also some folks using windoze have reported on here that some AV packages are slowing their connections.  If you have that on, turn off whilst you run the test.
