M200

I am getting very frustrated now, 5 days ago i changed my service from m100 to m200, every single day I have ran a speed test from my windows 10 desktop (connected via cat6 to a powerline adapter) every day I have only gotten a maximum 70Mbps where your 'understanding your speeds' section guarantees minimum 107Mbps, not once so far have i experienced anything close to 200Mbps, i am also going to be charged slightly more for this during this month but am yet to have reached what I have paid for, nothing my side has physically changed and I have followed advice on the website regarding resetting / pin resetting the router to default, I just want this sorted as I am not getting the service I have paid for

Re: M200

Powerline adapters won't give you the full speed, depending on scenario.

What speed do you get with a direct wired connection?

Re: M200

I am not able to use a direct connection to the router, my desktop is located upstairs and the router downstairs... Testing this would be problematic as I have a large desktop

Speeds are guaranteed with a direct ethernet cable.

VM can't guarantee speeds with third party devices.

 

Could you post the model number of the powerline adapters?

The ethernet ports are only 10/100 so a maximum of 100Mbps.

Including overheads 70Mbps is about right.

You need to upgrade to powerline adapters with gigabit ethernet adapters to see faster speeds.

Re: M200

As per their own user manual it states.

The Powerline Adapter supports up to 500Mbps data rate. With this high speed connection rate,
this Powerline Adapter allows you to setup a high speed home network by using your home
existing electrical wiring.

500Mbps bandwidth across multiple powerline adapters. With 10/100 ethernet sockets you will never get near 500Mbps on one adapter.

Something like:

Re: M200

I've updated my post above.

You can get gigabit powerline adapters for around £35 that use gigabit ethernet sockets.

You should see your full 200Mbps, however distance between the adapters can make a massive difference.
