Ethernet slower than Wi-Fi, can you help please?

On the M100 package.

separated the 2.4 & 5 ghz signals, and on computer, IPad, & Xbox now getting 100-110mbps via Wi-Fi, however now connected via Ethernet cable using a 1gb powerline adaptor and now only getting 35-40mbps.  Checked on Xbox, PlayStation & PC, same for all.

any ideas why, what I can do to improve speed?

Thanks

Ditch the powerline adaptor and either get a better one,go mesh or hard wired

would look to be the powerline adaptors - do a wired speed test direct to the hub - powerlines are only as good as the electrical circuit - when i had them i could get different speeds on each connector of a 2 gang socket - they work but can give poor results

Tanks for the reply, can you expand on your answer?

Not really practical to hardwire, router downstairs, Xbox etc upstairs.  


you say use better powerline, these are new, offer speeds up to 1000mbps, not sure swapping thems going to make a difference, unless you can point me in the right direction?

Never heard of mesh, can you explain please?

thanks

Re: Ethernet slower than Wi-Fi, can you help please?

Thanks for the advice, now got a mesh Wi-Fi up and running, much better speeds upstairs and low latency.

 

Now to the next problem, having put the router into modem mode only the first Ethernet connection (used for the mesh Wi-Fi) is now working.

 

i have a powerline connected for BT Freeview box that doesn’t have Wi-Fi, all 3 lights on the powerline are green but the box is not connected to the internet, and I also have have NAS box connect which is also now not connected to the internet.

 

What settings do I need to change to get these Ethernet ports working again?

 

Grateful for any advice.  

Thanks

If you need more ethernet ports then perhaps modem mode isn't a good idea, you can run the hub in regular router mode and turn off the wifi

Get a switch connect it to the mesh other port.
