Re: Tp link vr2800 help

Do you get the same happening if you put the BT hub back online?

As your phone is connected by wifi, perhaps its simply saturating the wifi network. Do other devices just disconnect, or is it that they get no throughput?

Its not unusual for uploading to affect the speed of downloads, especially if your upload speed is not very good.

Run a speed test on an Ethernet connected device, and see if you get the same result.

Try putting the phone in the lowest QOS category. I would say that its simply hogging all of the wireless bandwidth.

Re: Tp link vr2800 help

thanks for that info

 

it didnt make any difference.   as soon as i start a speed test which stresses the network everything still goes off.  its okay doing download test its as soon as the upload test starts.  its so strange

 

firestick shows loading button and ps4 and ps5 players start flying in the sky.

 

gonna try the bt home hub back in next.  i know bt had played with my connection to make it work as he could see problems i have been on the phone with bt tech the last few weeks as i had problems with speed.   they said they had altrered stuff there end and my end as i was getting alot of errrors.

im wondering if the settings that were done router side by them need doing on here.

 

my speed is getting better as the hours go by...  but still glithcy on online gaming and watching tv

Re: Tp link vr2800 help

from the main menu click advanced tab then network then internet. under modify press what looks like a notepad and pen. at the bottom (above where it says mac clone) press the arrow next to advanced then its in that section.

try 1480 first then press save at the bottom. the router "may" restart, i dont remember.
