Wonder if anyone out there can help with a SKY broadband problem I have.
I use a netgear 934gt(the black one). I was having trouble with the wifi range and thought I'd upgrade to an N type router, which supposedly have a better range. To cut a long story short by using the N router my broadband speed dropped from 3meg to 1 meg. Thinking I'd got a faulty router I tried two others with the same result. SKY are being quite helpful but are perplexed by this issue. They have now sent me one of the new HUB routers but this has exactly the same issues. All the usual things have been checked time and time again to no avail. Why would a router slow the access down or visa versa why would a router (934gt) increase the access speeds?
The Sky technicians say my PC etc. is fine for 802.11n
They have never seen this before and are at a loss as to what is causing it. It is easily repeatable and I've switched routers over 10 times to convince the doubters. It can't be the line in as its the same for all routers I've tried. Now at a loss, I'd like to fit the new hub (mainly for its wifi capabilities) but cant due to the line speed drop from 3meg to 1 meg.
Hi. Probably did not make myself clear. I am talking about a wired connection. The reason I wanted an n router was for its extra wifi coverage but I've not even tested that yet as the wired connection drops to 1 meg from 3 meg.
