Wirless now rubbish

We have always had a good connection speed as we are close to the exchange. But over the last two weeks the wireless connection speeds are almost constantly under 1 meg 😞 sometimes creeping up to 7meg (for a short time only).

 

Just looking at the my stats. There appear to be alot of errors - any suggestions ???

Re: Wirless now rubbish

Hi Welcome to the forum
This link may help you http://www.btinternet.com/~cbeddoe/wireless/hub3_wireless.html

 

It may also help if you download   insidder and then select a free wireless channel 

it sounds like wireless interference could be your problem

Re: Wirless now rubbish

Is the speed the same when connected using an Ethernet cable, and is it much slower after dark?

Then your problem is more likely due to a low downstream noise margin.

 

See Noise margins

 

It looks like its only 2.5db  at the moment. I suspect it drops lower later, and the CRC events start clocking up.

Re: Wirless now rubbish

keith the errors don't seem very high bearing in mind that connection time is 6+ days

 

can you run btspeedtser beta version and post when you see slow download.  there is no restriction on the number of times you can this beta version

Re: Wirless now rubbish

Its stil 9700 CRC errors a day, and if most of them are in the evening, that is when the margin is going to drop.

 

The best way is to wait until it slows down, make a note of the noise margin, and check the CRC events every 30 second or so, to see if they are clocking up.

 

There are also a large number of errored second, which indicate noise or interference.

 

The usual "test" socket test would be best, and see if the noise margin goes up a bit.

Re: Wirless now rubbish

be interesting to see if they increase substantially at night but 9700 crc over 24hrs is only 6/7 a minute and on fast that does not seem alot of errors - unless they all happen in a couple of hours at night

Keith

 

The ethernet connection is fine - about 18-20 meg. It is only wirelss on a selection of devices. Seems no pattern to the dips, ie does not relate to time of day - never even got up to 1 meg all of yesterday afternoon. Currently running at about 13 (which is fine).

Re: Wirless now rubbish

Will post a speed test when it next slows down.

 

Thanks to both for your help

Re: Wirless now rubbish

wireless is never reliable for the maximum speed there are to many sources of interference to slow it down also unless all your devices are wireless n enabled the slowest device will set the speed for all devices set for example a wireless g laptop will cause a wireles n laptop to connect at g speeds
