Wireless upload faster than wired?!

Recommended Posts

Weird. Just thought to check this on a whim and look at the difference. Why is my upload over wireless so much faster? I am running a cat6 cable to a Netgear switch. Only thing besides the Xbox using the switch is the tv.

Looks like an Xbox speed test - usually console speed-tests are completely unreliable. What WiFi speeds do you get using Speedtest.net on, say, a phone or tablet? What speeds do you get on a wired PC?

It's very rare for wireless to out-perform wired. I'm not even sure if it's possible unless you're using a faulty cable.

Yep, Xbox test but I have never had over 1.5 wired in the hundreds of tests I have done. And then bam, first test on wireless. I will plug in my laptop after work and test it.

I would also suggest testing direct to the router and bypassing the switch to see if that is slowing it down. Depending on the switch model it may have its own QoS management that is affecting it.
