      I'd agree with isitme regarding the wireless. None of our devices get over 30Mbits - infact a quick test on the iphone gives 16.42Mbps with a 56ms ping. however via a desktop on a gigabit switch gives



      When we first got the 80/20 firefox couldnt cope with speed but installing chrome seemed to fix that. We also tried running sabnzbd+ on our 1/2gig dualcore 1.86Ghz NAS but the hardware wasn't fast enough to realise the full speed either.

      We do find speedtest a bit hit and miss. I could quite as easily got a poor result back even though I know the real world speed is fine, as Usenet will almost always max out the line.

      The Iphone is a single stream device with a 65Mbit/s therotical max,

      I get 21Mbit/s out of mine connecting to the Ubiquiti UniFi AP which is above my head right now (It's also incorrectly mounted if I'm honest as it's just sitting on a shelf ahove my pc)

      I've seen about 37Mbit/s out of an iPhone before but To be honest it's a phone what can you possibly do with it that needs more than 20Mbit on the wi-fi that's plenty to stream video and download spotify.etc
