Slow wired connection


[link to this post]
 
I have150 Mbs virgin broadband . My pc has a wired connection (about 1m ) to the router and I can usually achieve this speed.However I have a android streaming device wired about 10m away and I cant get any more than 20 Mbs for this. Do any of you knowledgeable people have any ideas why?Thanks in advance

What is in between? e.g. if walls it may the signal strength is dropping out, or the android device is a very old device with only 802.11n rather than faster wireless standards

How are measuring the speed and have you tried a different cable?

Do you have issues with the streaming?

If not then the speed difference is not a problem. If you have issues, then device details will help. Such as o/s version.

It gave a 196Mbps at 5GHz and 47MBps at 2.4 GHz which is the fastest I have seen for an Android TV box.

Linky

What do you get via wi-fi?

Nice link-re wifi-nothing like that and I tried 5g and 2g-youre talking about 30mbs
looks like it might be [censored] superhub 3 altho the super hub 2ac was'nt any better as i recall. what i can't understand is why i can get 150mbs at pc

The device itself seems capable of more than 150mbps.

Faulty device maybe? Not sure if those things have software/firmware updates but could try popping into the settings to see if everything is up to date.

Silly question but have you got any programs on your pc using bandwidth? To rule it out completely i'd switch my pc off/pull the ethernet and do another speedtest on that device.
