Re: upgrade from 350mb to 500mb - no speed change at all
@cavalier666 The photos did show, they just need to be approved by mods before they are visible to everyone.
The config does appear to have been upgraded on the hub to M500. You mention testing in modem mode with a gaming router, have you tried modem mode with just your PC? Also worth putting the PC into safe mode to try to rule out any software throttling.
Another possibility is that the PC can’t deliver the extra speed. I have seen users on here upgrade to higher speeds and not get them because their PC’s CPU would max out at 100% usage during speed tests. When you run your tests check on your CPU usage.
Also worth checking Ethernet drivers on PC and trying a new Ethernet cable.
My setup: VM TV box, M350 Fibre broadband with Hub 3 in modem mode connected to a Netgear R7000 router. Telewest/VM user since 2001.
