Hey everyone, I have the M200 package and it's been fine up until the last 2 weeks where it's been really slow. After numerous reboots and cold boots of my superhub and trying the online fault checker, there's still been no fault found and no solution. As you can see from the image below this is what I've been getting on multiple speed checks. I've tried to live chat someone but I guess it's not working at the moment with Covid-19? Many thanks for your time 🙂
Also probably worth mentioning that I'm connected directly to the superhub via ethernet cable 🙂
Please post the Network, Upstream and Downstream logs from the hubs admin pages.

@Jimbo86Your image of the log has been rejected as it contains MAC addresses and this is against the forum rules, to protect your privacy. If you copy and paste the log the forum will auto censor the MAC address for you. The log on it's own should not exceed the character limit as users post them on here all the time.
Power levels posted look OK. The Post RS errors on the downstream might be a concern if they continue to rise rapidly.

Thanks so much for popping along to our Forums and thanks so much for posting all your network logs for us.
I have been able to locate your account and you are currently impacted by a known congestion issue in your area. This was raised on 1st June under reference number F008084982. At the time of writing, the estimated fix date is 30th June.
Whist the issue is showing on your account we will be unable to book any technicians - it is the hope that once the issue is resolved, your speeds will perk back up to where they belong. If you are still having issues past the estimated fix date, pop back and let us know and we can take a closer look for you.
This has all been noted accordingly on your account for you.
80Mbps is a very suspicious number! It is ~ what you would get if your device was "limited" to a maximum of 100Mbps - often by using one with a 10/100 network card and not a 1GB one, or - using a Cat5 cable instead of a Cat5e or better one (or if it is that it may have "failed"), or if on wifi you are connecting just on the 2.4 GHz band and not the 5GHz one, or if there was some "software" running on there that was limiting speed e.g. QoS or Dell's SmartByte.
So it would be worth seeing if that is indeed the issue first.
So, can you test speeds directly like this. As you expect >100Mbps then connect a 1GB enabled computer/laptop, with up to date drivers, via a known good and working Cat5e (or better) ethernet cable, directly to the Hub which you have put into “modem mode”. Test at speedtest.net (not the App!) to your nearest VM server - try on 2 different browsers.
If they are still low – boot the device into safe+networking mode and try it again.
There are many posts on here where unknown software, corrupted browsers or other connected devices are limiting speeds on tests.
Report back what that gets.
