      Re: Wireless speed problem

      Except under perfect conditions, wireless will not give the same speed as ethernet. To rule out wireless problems you should connect with ethernet, run for 24 hours, then post your full detailed stats. The methods of doing this can be found in the link in my sig below.

      Re: Wireless speed problem

      you will need to post your detailed stats (look for the mognuts utility)
      looking at the stats you have posted i can see you may have a line problem (your noise margin is 6.4 and if it drops lower will give you problems)
      in most cases this will be down to your home wiring and to rule this out you will need to do a comparison from your test socket (if you have one it will be behind the master socket face plate)

      also wired will nearly always be slower than wired (for most people) have a look in the wireless forum for hints and tips

      I think you meant 'wireless'
