Fibre Broadband

Go to solution

Hi - just had full fibre to the premises connected. The Wi-Fi speed through my phone is 210mb but a direct connection is only 90mb. Where had the other mb gone?

 

Am i missing something?

thanks

I'm gonna guess that the device you're testing with only has a 100Mbps network card.

Many thanks. I have an existing NetGear Prosafe 24 Gigabit Switch coupled to a Netgear FS728TP for a small office. 20+ hard wire points and 3 wireless access points. All worked up in 2012.How would I check what network card is installed?

What operating system are you currently running on the device used for testing?

Mac OS Catalina is hard wired on the network. Used my iPhone next to the hub and hard wired a MacBook direct to the hub. Th leather two are flying at 220MB

Alright, I'm not exactly well versed in MacOS but try and find the Network Utility from the finder and it should state a "Link Speed". That should tell you what speed your Mac is connected to the switch / hub at.

Neither am I but this might help.

Check your network connection using Network Utility on Mac

Also found this.

Open System Information (Option + apple key-> System Information). What do you have listed in your Ethernet Controller under Hardware -> Ethernet Cards?

Thankyou. You are right. The Mac has a 100MB network card. However my Dell laptop can get 220MB if connected direct to the hub but not on the network.

I guess the switch could have a limit?

Thoughts?

If you're connecting it to the Netgear FS728TP then yeah it'll be 100Mbps MAX as the Switch is only a 10/100 Switch and not Gigabit (10/100/1000).

Could be a faulty switch. Wouldn't be the first time.
