speed test
      #445525 - 12/05/17 08:23 AM

Did a speed test and was below 1MBPS. Rebooted computer and router and speed is back to 20+ MBPS. This is with Comcast. Why the big change?

I'm supposed to be at 200 mbps with xfinity/Comcast.
My speed test is 34 mbps. I called and they said it was because I was wireless, a hard wire would work better. (hah)
My son lives across town, he replaced his Comcast router with one from Best Buy...240mbps (wireless) from 30mbps before.

I may check out the Best Buy router and stop renting this Comcast one.

I see this with modems. It may have struggled at some point and so it knocked the speed down. It takes a reboot of the connection to return to normal.

I'm not sure why it doesn't do it on it's own. Perhaps there's only so many retries before it gives up and stays with the lower speed.

When I went to a faster connection, I could not see the speeds. It turned out, that my router has a slower connection to the modem, than between ports.

Got a new router, speeds were fine, wired or wireless.

Next speed boost, I could not get full speed, that time I had to upgrade the modem.

Which wifi protocol is he running? Wouldn't expect 240 Mbps from anything less than 802.11ac.

802.11n has a theoretical max of 300 Mpbs but, according to this article, 100 Mpbs is typical.

I'm getting a 243 Mbps connection to my WAP on an 802.11n connection but that's the full bandwidth of the computer<>WAP connection. Internet is testing at 92 Mbps down and 12 Mbps up. Not sure what my subscription caps are. I use a commercial-grade WAP from TP-Link (EAP220).

802.11a and 802.11g, what many probably have, is 54 Mbps max.

Even with an 802.11ac WAP, you'll need clients that can support it.
