Re: Slow and intermittent Download Speed

Wired direct to the hub or via a switch or powerline plug?

Re: Slow and intermittent Download Speed

Hi HRW,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the community. 

 

I'm very sorry to hear about the issue you're having. 

 

Can you confirm how many devices you have connected?

Because if other devices are using bandwidth then you won't see the full speed.

To ascertain where the issue lies - for example with the hub or one specific device.

In addition to the direct ethernet in to the computer, on WIFI we have 3 mobile phones, a Mac laptop, 3 smart TV's  and a tablet but these are not all operating at the same time.

Hi HRW, 

 

Are you able to disconnect all other devices from your connection and run the speed test on the one wired connection?
