Today the nice BT Openreach engineer connected me to Talktalk 'fibre fast' & he showed me the speed at the master socket, exactly 80MBps down & 20Mbps up.
What I am testing as is:
I have tested this on two machines, my setup is I connect LAN4 on the HG533 to an 8port switch Dynamode SW80010-M:
The machines are connected to the switch.
I'm also having problems connecting via WLAN but I'm investigating that, my wireless computer is an 11 year old IBM T41 which connected fine to my previous router, the Talktalk HG523; the T41 runs wireless at 802.11a/b/g only. Slow slow but it should connect...
I'm not complaining, 50MBps down seems like a miracle to me, I started in 1986 with a Hayes modem running 1200/300 baud, heh
BBN stuff, no internet yet then. And now people complain because they're not getting 100% of everything.
There is only the single master socket, which the engineer replaced & added to that the Openreach fibre modem & then CAT5e to the HG533. As I say, he tested it at the socket & got the full shebang 80/20, I am 150 metres from the cabinet.
What should I expect as I leave it turned on for the next 10 days?
