Upgraded from M100 to M200 bust still same speed?

Upgraded my M100 Broadband 10 months ago to M200.

Was getting between 54Mbps and 82Mbps on the M100 package (on ethernet connected desktop)

So M200 should be faster right?  Unfortunately not - only around 50-60 Mbps at best using same ethernet connected desktop...how can this be ?

An Virgin engineer called to repair a phone fault...so sounded him out about the Broadband speed and he was fairly sure that the speed had not been increased by sending info to router when upgraded.  So called VM to get it checked and upgraded...a simple task I thought. Managed to get through to UK call centre (all good so far) 40 minutes later having explained that the VM hub was connected to PC via ethernet cable and I was still being told that it was a wi-fi issue with bad signal from hub to PC!!!!!  Eventually I was left on hold for extended periods whilst he was checking the possible answers to my problems from a crib sheet. His final answer after best part of an hour was to 'leave it for 24 hours and see if it gets any faster'......unbelievable!

And no it didn't get any faster as I suspected....my M200 hard wired connection is still at around 52Mbps

Go to the Hubs admin page 192.168.0.1 and check the Config tab. The Primary Downstream Flow will show the speed of your Hub.

.......also check if you Ethernet card on the PC/Laptop is NOT 10/100 and that you are using a Cat5e or better Ethernet cable.

This ;

Max Traffic Rate22000061

 

That's the config for 200MB, so your configuration is okay.

So, as advised by @conman33158  above, have you checked the cable you are using?  Should be Cat 6a and the NIC is capable for 1GB speeds?  What device are you using btw?

Hi @YogiBear57 

Your primary downstream confirms you are on M200.

As @conman33158 suggested  check if the Ethernet card on your PC/Laptop is NOT 10/100. 

It needs to be 10/100/1000 to get speeds over 100.

If you have Windows 10 or 11 you can open powershell and type in get-netadapter | select name, linkspeed (screenshot at the bottom to show I have a 1G network card)

Other ways to check the card and change settings
