Re: maximising speed on ps4

You could try a powerline adapter, like below, which uses power sockets to transmit data through your power lines, however it can be as unreliable as Wifi

For £35 it's worth a go. You could always return it!

Make sure 5GHZ is set to 80 to get Max Link Speed of 866 it has a habit of reverting to 40 which means a Link Speed of 433 when HUB reboots (during the night due to VM working on network etc not just by end user).

Have a look at setting up a proxy with squid/ccproxy  - you'll need another laptop/PC but your downloads will be 100x quicker.

Re: maximising speed on ps4

how will a proxy make the download faster? the network is the limiting factor
