Problems with Wireless

Hello,

 

These are the results from my Broadband Speed Test from earlier which I ran through an Ethernet cable (wired):

This is the speed which we SHOULD be receiving.

 

However this is the result from the test which I did wireless from my computer just now:

Why am I having a problem with the speed wirelessly and not wired? I have tried a wireless test from multiple items around my house ie. my computer, the family computer, my brother's computer and even my iPhone. All of which are coming up with similar poor results.

 

Does anyone know what may be the cause of this problem? 

 

Thankyou,

 

Harry McIntosh.

Re: Problems with Wireless

You change the settings on the router to match the settings I have posted.

If you don't want to mess anything up, you will be better off leaving them alone and putting up with your current wireless speeds.
