Vohl Posted October 17, 2017 Share Posted October 17, 2017 I'm looking for some help. I just had my broadband connection upgraded from a horrible 2Mb to fibre and I'm now getting 75Mb down 19Mb up (yay!) I went through the set up of my netduma and on my main PC (which is wired directly to the netduma) I get the full 75/19 speeds on various speed test sites. However, none of the wireless devices connected to the netduma go above 30Mb down. If I connect them directly to my Sky hub they get 70Mb down so there must be a bottle neck somewhere in the wireless connection to the netduma. I've been sat for hours now playing with the configuration options and nothing seems to be getting my wifi speeds higher than 30Mb down. Here are the things I've tried so far. Wi-fi Channel congestion: I live on a new build estate so there aren't many other houses around me. I've analysed wifi channels near me using WifiInfoView and most people are using channel 1 (there are 5 of them) and one person using channel 6 so I'm using wi-fi channel 11 all to myself, the next closest channel being used that my PC can detect is channel 7 but it's obviously quite far away due to the signal strength. I've also tried channel 6 and it makes no difference to my download speeds to be honest so I think I can rule wifi channel congestion out Router position: My Netduma is positioned on my desk right next to my Sky hub and hard wired to it. I've disabled the WiFi on my Sky hub. The wireless devices I'm testing with are all being tested within a metre's distance from the netduma so I think I can safely rule out interference in the house between the device and the router. I've actually tried moving around the house and no matter where I am I get the same download of between 25-30 Mb. Netduma settings: I've tried switching off/on various items in the misc settings page on the netduma, turbo mode, stealth mode, I've disabled deep packet processing to name a few. Nothing I change seems to make a difference. I'm really out of ideas now and would appreciate some advice. As I say, the hard wired PC gets the full download speeds of 75Mb, it's ONLY wireless devices that seem to have the download throttled and if I connect them directly to my sky hub they get 70Mb down..
