      Fibre Pro Slow over wireless

      Hey everyone,

      Had a long chat over an hour with a nice guy from Tech Support at Sky, but with no luck.

      I had Fibre Pro installed on 6th December.

      On Ethernet connection I get aprox 75Mb

      But over Wireless I merely get upto 30Mb

      These are the stats from the SR102 Hub:

      Router Statistics
      System Up Time: 03:27:51
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collision Pkts Tx b/s Rx b/s Up Time WAN MER 10010987 17269864 0 890193 40842926 03:24:41 LAN Up 145855 97875 0 93 2378 03:27:51 WLAN Up 3922128 2155103 0 42367666 852501 03:22:37

      Broadband Link Downstream Upstream Connection Speed 79987 kbps 19999 kbps Line Attenuation 10.3 dB 0.0 dB Noise Margin 27.4 dB
      23.23 dB

      I have tried all channels in my area not being used but settled with Sky's recommendation of Channel 5.

      I moved the Hub to a bedroom where no electrical goods are, or in the surrounding rooms but still the same result.

      I disabled toe Hub's WIFI connected a D-Link DIR615 N300 Router, still get high 70's via ethernet and only upto 30's via Wireless, so I do not think its the Hub.

      I have updated the drivers on my laptop which has a Broadcom 802.11n Adaptor, and also tried a TP-Link Wireless N Nano Receiver with similiar results.

      I have downloaded from Steam (which I believe is a realible high speed server to try, rather then these speed test websites) and got a Peak download of 5.2 Megabytes, which is 41 Megabits, this was only blips rather than constant 41Mb, it was more hovering around 4 Megabytes 32 Megabits.

      Can anyone suggest anything I can try? If I can get 45Mb+ wirelessly then I am happy as my PS3, PS4 and Sky+HD are all connected via ethernet so should benefit of 70Mb+ connection.

      Thanks in advanced !
