R7000 with Virgin Superhub, speed fluctuating massively.

Hi all,

 

Just set up my new router, Superhub 2ac in modem mode and all was good. Was getting 220Mbps to my laptop via wifi and was really impressed. An hour later this had dropped to 160, thought this maybe general fluctuation until I connected this morning and was at 2Mbps. Rebooted everything and got back up to 60 but nowhere near the initial speed.

Can anyone recommend any checks I can perform ? I did upgrade R7000 to latest firmware after the initial test.

 

Thanks in adbance,

 

Stu

Hi Stueybuk,

 

1. What is the speed when wired to the router?

2. What is the speed when wired to the modem?

Thanks for the reply James. Sorry for the stupid question, but how do I check the speed when wired to the modem ? Do I need to put a static IP on PC as the modem will not allocate an address ? or do you mean put the superhub back to router mode and test ?

 

Cheers,

 

Stu

Hi Stueybuk,

 

Just connect the computer directly to the modem and the modem should give an IP address.
