difference between wired and wireless tests

How many people find any significant difference between WiFI and Ethernet? I never have!!!!

 

Also if you are looking at the SmartHub pages e.g. http://bthomehub.home/0000013200/gui/#/basicStatus doesn't anyone ever question why it makes any diference? The work of doing the speed testing is between the hub and the BT network not between the hub and the machine you are using to run the Status test, WiFI or Wire.

 

How long has 170170 not worked for? Is there a number that does work?

Oh dear, the test is being run from the machine doing the testing, not the hub. There is often a siginificant difference between wired and wireless as wireless is subject to interference.

 

Sync speed is measured at the hub, download speed at the machine doing the testing. They are not the same thing.

I repeat I have rarely found any difference and it becomes annoying when one is assumed to be the lowest common denominator. Perhaps those who think they are 'helping' should allow for the possibility that WiFi is not the problem here - it is the Hub to BT network, wired or WiFi. It is almost as if BT are in denial their service faults and all their customers are the problem.

So you'll have no problem doing a speedtest using a wired connectipm and posting up the results then.

Nobody is suggesting the OP's problem is wireless, he has confirmed the test was done with a wired connection. A sample size of one is not a good basis for making sweeping statements about wired versus wireless problems. Move your wireless device to about 100 yards from the hub and see if that makes any difference to your speedtest!!! You are not helping by posting incorrect information.

The answer is quite simple. Wireless can be affected by different enviromental conditions. Ethernet cannot. The standard test is therfore done via ethernet. Simple and the same for all.
