Re: old cabe v new cat 6

I think I must be missing something but what have the different cables got to do with a wifi conenction and test?

I wondered the same but assumed he meant the cable from phone socket to the HH5.

Thought the same but have found it dangerous to assume so decided to ask the question

Re: old cabe v new cat 6

Do you mean the cable from the wall socket to the HH?

 

There is quite a different in speed - I don't think this can be down to the cable.

 

If you have tested speed before has it always been around the 20Mbps mark?

 

The best way to test speed is via a device connected via ethernet to the HH, but having said that 76Mbps is a good speed.

 

What speed are you paying for BTW?
