Does anyone here have a clue why this is happening and why one of the regulars (community star) said it was not a good review?
Test using Ethernet cable.
Test Wi-Fi -
I posted this last night in the TalkTalk forum and was told it was a poor review but i am experiencing the Wi-Fi problem highlighted in the review.

In addition, it becomes evident the Wi-Fi tech used here is fairly basic, despite its use of dual-band (5GHz and 2.4GHz) and the latest AC Wi-Fi standard. In tests this router came a distant last, although I reiterate that some other ISP-provided routers will perform just as poorly.
Using the 5GHz band, this router maxed out at just 21.3MB/sec, which compares to 60.1MB/sec for the next slowest AC router Iíve tested. In our two further tests the router managed 9.3MB/sec (5m away, with two walls between the router and the Wi-Fi receiver) and 9.6MB/sec (7m away, with two walls in between and a floor down). Again, these figures are dwarfed by the next worst on test, which managed 37.8MB/sec and 13.5MB/sec.
Moving to the generally slower 2.4GHz band and the difference is more modest, as even the fastest routers can only hit around 20MB/sec. Nonetheless, the HG633 managed only 7.6MB/sec, 6.2MB/sec and 4.7MB/sec; the next worst recorded 11.9MB/sec, 7.8MB/sec and 6.8MB/sec.
These figures pale even in comparison to other ISP-provided routers, with the likes of the BT Home Hub 5 hitting 50MB/sec+ in our AC tests. In fact, even the old TalkTalk Super Router, the HG635, performed reasonably well, so itís clear just how inadequate the HG633 is. Moreover, if you go out and spend £50-£100 on a third-party router youíre likely to benefit from a huge leap in performance.
