Re: Speed between master socket and router


[re: CoupeRacing] [link to this post]
 
VDSL2 at 2.4 km would be considered good if delivering 10 Mbps, so my tendency is to question the info from the engineer

Have you logged into the web interface of the PlusNet router to see what the actual connection speeds reported by it are?

Re: Speed between master socket and router

Hi everyone
Sorry for the delay in replying.
I am grateful to all that replied.

Today I did a little testing as advised.

Results :

The Router web interface is showing a download of 12.88Mbps

My PC which is CAT 5 via powerlines is 10.30Mbps ( powerlines )
My PC using an old wireless card was a disaster at 1Mbps ( wireless )

My new laptop sat by the PC is 11.30Mbps ( wireless )
My new laptop sat right next to the router is 11.80Mbps ( wireless )
My new laptop hard wired to the router is 11.80Mbps ( CAT 5 )

So to sum up , the powerlines to my PC are not causing too much to worry about , and I wont be switching to the laptop as I prefer my PC.

I guess I could fiddle with the wireless card in my pc , but its not something I'm very good at.

Many thanks and as ever , will welcome all thoughts and ideas.

Cheers

Steve

With just the router connected, plug an ethernet cable into the router and test the speed via a laptop.
How many modern laptops come with RJ45 ethernet sockets? My 2 year old HP laptop is to thin to accommodate an RJ45 socket.

Brand new HP laptop I bought last year has an RJ45 Ethernet socket.

Ditto!

1 month old Asus has aforementioned socket. Small flap has to be pulled down to accommodate.

Now Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk
