Yup the solid core are cat6a. Self terminated. When put in ran signal tests on either ends to make sure they were terminated ok before putting into walls. Aware of the patch cables don’t do anything or give me mixed results will look at possible reterminating.
Just an update to say things have now become stable. The wan port is now sitting at 1gbps no interruptions and is not backing back down to 100mb. I expect as per previous comments it’s the constant unplugging plugging in on the wan port and lan port in the wall that’s caused some rubbish/ dust in the ports to get flushed out.
I am receiving on one device up to 900+mbps wired and up to 600mbps WiFi ,through speed test which is repeatable so this gives me comfort the speed from the hub is getting through the router.
I have now disabled the BQM and FYI this from my noob perspective looked ok.
Thanks Mike it’s well worth knowing about and something I will definitely be engaging. If anyone’s interested have set up a script to call, “speed ookla” via batch , had forgot about it for a while but I think you can set it up on windows or probably cron it on linux for every half hour or what ever you set it for. pM me if interested!
Mike just to mirror the BQM as that’s spot on. bTW am a noob (it’s obvious) bit having an external monitor and internal monitor is fab!
