Re: Crap broadband speed

Maybe your testing your speed by wireless?

I would hope someone with so much experience in IT would know better than that.

Please post your power levels and network log.  Also setup a BQM here www.thinkbroadband.com/ping

Once done we can comment.  Testing needs to be done via direct cable connection to the Hub, as noted in the threads above.
