I have the latest wi fi hub and although it states when I check my router via its dashboard  that its download speed is 74mbps and upload 20 mbps. However when I perform a speedtest all I keep getting is between 25 and 38 mbps download and about 18 mbps upload.

 

The router is wired and next to my PC why is there such a vast difference between what the router says its getting to what my speedtest says Im getting.

CONFUSED.

 

Thanks

Hi Roger,

 

I'm sorry for the delay and I'll take a look now. I've run a test on the line which hasn't detected a fault and the connection stats look ok. Could you try switching the router off for a full 30 minutes and then run another wired speed test please as this will reset the current session and can often improve the throughput speed.

 

Thanks

That would be 74mbps to your ISP, when you get onto the Intertubes then downloading can be slower, what do these sites report:
