Welcome to Vodafone Community
Hi, I have SIRO installed in my home . and 1gb internet speed deal
however wifi 2.4 support me only 50mb and 150mb on 5G
with ethernet cable speed up to 800mb.
my question is why wifi speed is so poor considering I have 1gb deal and SIRO installed in my home
Many factors affect WiFi speed including:
Devices in use
interferance from other wireless signals (baby monitors, other WiFi networks, Bluetooth)
Number of devices accessing the WiFi at the same time
You could upgrade your home to support cat 6 or 7 ethernet cable. and you might get higher speeds on wired devices. Remember too the servers you accessing will also impact speed. Like miles per gallon all speeds are theoretical.
There are so many possibilities:
Is it a dual antenna router (2.4 and 5Ghz) or single (2.4 or 5Ghz)?
What other WiFi devices are connecting (are they all ac or are there g and b and a devices and can the router brodcast multiple signals or will it slow things to the worst device connecting)?
Are there many routers/devices around you using the same wifi channel?
Are you using the default DNS or open DNS or google DNS servers (small impact but still there)?
My laptop has intel dual band wireless AC-3165, Killer E2400 Gibabit ethernet controller.
and I think this wireless adapter suppose to support up to 400mb as I read it's information.
on my phone 5G my wifi speed working around 155mb and 146upload mb which is faster than my laptop
my laptop 5b wireless today working only 50mb 130mb upload 2,4B wireless working 46mb 35upload.
I'm using my laptop just right infront of my router from vodafone.
seems like my phone (galaxy note5) wireless internet much fater than my laptop
it was work fine few monthes ago. it wasn't perfect but still I could get on 2.4g around 150mb and 5g around 200mb and now it's just too slow than before.
update * I tried to disconnect all other devices . on 5G now the speed just nothing better less than 100mb at the monent . I don't know why xd
I have a feeling that your wifi chip on your laptop maybe faulty. ( that was the case for me)
You could try and get something like this
"Dual Band 600Mbps USB WiFi Dongle Wireless LAN Adapter 802.11ac/a/b/g/n 5/2.4Ghz" and see if your speeds improve.
Mobiles may have fast faster speeds as it may have more antennas inside it, so it can download more.
What speed to you get if you plug an ethernet cable into your laptop? you should be getting approx 1 gb with your ethernet card
Also it does sound as if your not getting a the 1gb speed via siro
I'm using intel duel band ac 3165
and I checked the wireless speed with disconnect devices but still it's same or getting worse so I think my issue is not from distract from other device. and no I don't use any DNS server could you let me know what DNS is suppose to be normal ? I can check out if mine is fine
If I connect ethernet cable I can get approx 1gb around 800mb.
However I think it is not my inside device problem. because I have the other gaming laptop even has better system and expensive than that one currently I'm using. but on the other laptop it has the same speed as this MSI laptop.
If I had different speed between this and other laptop I can presume it might just this laptop wireless adaptor has something problem. but It's just same... that's why I can't figure it out what is the problem.
I followed your CMD instruction and had speed test again
surprisingly the speed increased to 250mb and 147mb upload speed almost 3times faster now since it was only 50mb on 5G. Thank you so much.
Do you think is that the best speed I could get with my device ?.
There are people around the country (possibly reading this) crying for a fraction of that speed. Average user will not notice a difference between 1GB and 250mbs when using the internet for routine stuff.
Yea but I paid for 1Gb deal per month and if I can't use the right speed what is the point to pay for it
I'm not trying to offend anyone else, just wondering why I can't use the right speed as it said 1gb deal.
thank you for your help in this matter
