Gig1/hub 4 question

When I had 360 installed, the engineer fitted an attenuator to my Hub 3. A couple of weeks ago I upgraded to Gig1 and a Hub 4. On a wired connection I am not achieving the expected speed as per the VM table although well within minimum expected speed spec.  Wi-Fi performance is improved as hoped (once the three pods I have got their collective stuff together) and although the wired speed is at around 950Mbps download I have not achieved expected speed since upgrading. Would removing the attenuator be advised or help boos the speed to  that magical 1Gb? Thanks

You are getting ~1GB on ethernet - so the connection and Hub is all good - leave the attenuator on.

You will never get anywhere near 1GB on wifi without using a wifi6 router - the Hub4 does not have wifi6. Someone more tech savvy can explain what you can expect - IIRC its about 650mbps

The maximum achievable speed is 940mb via Ethernet connection as this is all the Gigabyte ports will allow from the hub, so you're doing well getting 950mb 🙂

Virgin advertise a product that's 1gb but in reality its lower than that coming out the other side of the hub. If you run a test on https://www.samknows.com/realspeed/ you will see 1gb coming into the Hub 4.
