Re: Massive difference between wired and wifi speed from new home hub

There are many reasons for slower speeds on wireless and that is the reason that all ISPs will not guarantee speeds on wireless. Your speed difference is probably better than most.

 

Speeds can be effected by interference, distance from source, standard of receiving device, construction of property walls floors etc,

 

Some things you can try to improve it is check that the wireless card drivers on your device are upto date. Use the card manufactures website for that.

 

Download, install and run inSSider. It will show you the wireless channels and which one your Homehub is on. You want to find the channel with the least congestion, ie. least number of users. Once you have that you need to change your homehub onto that channel.

You've nailed it there GG. I don't think there's anything else we can add to that.
