Painful wifi

Me and my Partner moved into our new home in August, Virgin sent out the new router and we were promised 100mb plus and at best we get 30mb if we are in the same room as the router! We get 12mb upstairs. We have moved the router and endless calls and turning it off and back on again and nothing I repeat nothing works! It's clear virgin are not upholding their contract to provide decent broadband speeds. To say I'm angry is an understatement why are we paying all this money for poor service!

Re: Painful wifi

What speeds do you get at >>  SamKnows << with a direct connection using a Cat 5E or better ethernet cable between the Hub in Router Mode and a 1Gbs capable Pc/Mac/Chromebook and no other devices connected ?

Then immediately after …

Can you Login to the Hub Settings and navigate to the Connected Devices page - what is the reported 'connection speed’ for the ethernet cable connected device you used for the speed test ?

Re: Painful wifi

I have had the same issue for months.  our speed is pathetic and we are constantly disconnected.  We are supposed to to get minimum 54mbps download speed guaranteed and are lucky if we get to 40.  I have to wait forever to speak to anyone and cannot wait in front of my computer all day.  Virgin can claim whatever they like about their speed versus other providers but it is utter nonsense.

Re: Painful wifi

Re: Painful wifi

I am not looking for help from you or anyone else. I was just acknowledging that I feel your pain and I have experienced the same problems.

So you don't want help, yet you are moaning you have an issue?

And have come onto a help forum and the initial post is to add to someone else's to acknowledge their pain.

Weird.
