i had 1gb fibre installed a few weeks ago. utter rubbish, its no faster than it was before, its actually slower.
the first hub5 they sent me out had a fault on it, virgin was unable to see the speeds i was getting at the router, so they sent me out a second one.
i fitted the second hub, on a wifi connection i'm able to see a 600mb on the speed test sites, sam knows says it well over 1GB at the router and 600mb at my laptop.
but when i do the same test on my PC (hard wired with cat6) i only get 300mb. now i have a 1gb network connection in my PC and i have recently fitted a 2.5GB card in the computer, this did not improve the download speed.
i had the VM engineer out today and he replaced the F connector on the end of my coax and the 2 splitters on the property, He also moved me to a better connection point in the cab box up the road.
none of this has made any difference to my internet speed.
when i was paying for 100mb i got 100mb
when i had 350mb i got 350mb
when i had 500mb i only got 300mb
and now i have 1GB i still only get 300mb. its as if the router is bottle necking the bandwidth on the hard wired network ports.
I have never heard of a system where the WIFI is faster than the Ethernet before.
can anyone help before i pull all my hair out?
