NightHawk MR5100 Connection Speed

Dear All

 

I'm Using MR5100 for my 5g connection its a really good router that can provide the speed that you expected from it.

 

but I have 2 Issues with it :-

 

1- when I connect it through USB 3.2 for tethering i'm only get a connection speed 855 Mb/s and by wifi 6 I got only 866 Mb/s and if I connect it through Ethernet only get 1 Gb per secend.

 

I have another 5g hotspot from a different company which can give me 2Gb/s through USB 3.2.

 

so how can I connect my nightHawk though USB 3.2 to let it give me 2Gb/s ?

 

2- Many times my router throttling its drops from 500 or 600 Mb/s to 10 or 20 Mb/s in speedtest and direct downloads so the only way to fix it is to turn it off for a while and then turn it on I think it something about overheating idk my room temps are 68 F.

 

Kindly help

 

Best regards

I can't help with this.  But I remember how happy I was to get a 14.4 kbps modem upgrade from 2400 baud.  Now I'm reading a post saying, "I can ONLY get 1 gigabit" and it's making me think about life.

Re: NightHawk MR5100 Connection Speed

the 1 gigabit belong the the connection between router and pc 

 

its not the speed of the internet

Re: NightHawk MR5100 Connection Speed

How are you measuring speed between the PC and hotspot via ethernet without involving USB, cellular or WiFi?

Re: NightHawk MR5100 Connection Speed

There is 3 Methods to connect your router to the pc 

 

1- Via Ethernet Cable which give me 1 Gb/s Connection 

2- Wireless which give me 851 Mb/s on AC and 1.2 Gb/s on AX 

3- USB Cable ( Tethering ) which give me 851 Mb/s  

 

not i'm not talking about internet speed 

 

i'm talking about the connection speed between the router and pc as we now the connection between them on Ethernet Cable and Wifi 1 Gb and 1.2 Gb 

 

my question : why usb cable ( Tethering ) dont give 2.5 Gb/s like other hotspots from huawei is there a problem on my router or it just cant reach more than 851 Mbs 

 

best regards

Re: NightHawk MR5100 Connection Speed

Are you testing using the exact same USB cable that you had plugged into the Huawei? And the exact same port on the PC?

Not all USB C cables are USB3. Some USB C cables are USB2.

The USB cable on the A side should have 9 pins instead of the usual 4 pins. Even if it is blue, it may not have 9 pins inside.
