For the last 3 days or something, the internet around the house has been pretty bad. We bought a new box (Hub 3.0) last week, so I'm sure that isn't the problem. I followed all the steps the Virgin Media website gave for trying to fix this problem, but to no avail. For reference, I use wired ad get around 160 mbps tops, but the last 3 days have been lower than 20 mbps, going above once every few hours or so to about 70 for a few seconds. Any ideas?
Normally this problem could've been fixed, but the odd part is that I've reached speeds of around 160 mbps on my laptop with a cable, even with 5-7+ other devices connected, which is why I'm confused. Trying with other cables didn't change anything, my OS version is 19041.572 and I'm using an HP Pavillion Notebook. Thanks for all your help so far.
