I've got a HG633 and issues when uploading large files. My iCloud photo library is trying to upload however when it is doing this my download speed is nearly nothing and i'm unable to browse webpages (Even just Google). On some research i've found that another member has had the same issue with the same router on this discussion -
I'm unable to upload my photo library because of this as the internet is unuseable - I can't leave it running in the background as it kills the whole connection.
On some further investigation I've found my router firmware is also not up to date, when it's supposed to update automatically.
I'm sorry to hear this. I've just checked and the router has the latest version of firmware (I'm not sure when this updated) Are you still experiencing this issue at the moment?
1.01 is the hardware version, your firmware version it 2.00t which is the latest version
Has this only just started happening or has it always been a problem?
OK thanks, sorry I'm not that familiar with iCloud, do you know if it has any sort of upload manager that would enable you to manage the upstream bandwidth available to it?
No it doesn’t, it’ll self manage based on the speeds. It doesn’t get away from the fact when I try to upload anything, iCloud or other files it kills our internet.
I've ordered the router, it should be with you within a couple of days but please allow up to 5 working days for delivery (there's no charge for the router)
Thanks for your reply.
I've checked the connection stats and I can see that your line is in sync at 28.4mb. The sync speed may start to increase again if the connection remains stable and errors are low.
Please can you leave the router switched on without rebooting and post back on this thread in 48hrs? We can then check the connection stats again.
Ok will leave on for 48 hours without a reboot and see if it makes a difference. Thanks.
Speed still is hovering around 26 mbps after being on for a full 48 hours...
