Hi All,

I just bought a new 8970 modem/router to replace my Technicolour 582 as this wasn't great for gaming. The only problem is the speed has been reduced to a third. The technicolour was allowing a speed of 13-15 mbps and using the same test (ookla) with the TPlink the speed is down to 5mbps. Whilst i understand the tests ar enot that accurate, it does give an indication.

Furthermore on my Playstation 4, the connection test has gone from 13-15 mbps to 1.5 mbps.

I am sure that there is a setting I am unaware of, on the status page of the tplink UI is as follows. I am not a massive techie but the downstream suggests I am getting 15mbps at the router.

UP DOWN
























1019 15377
1032 15948
13.6 12.8
3.2 8.5
0 0






Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

Are you connecting to W8970 by wire or wirelessly to test the speed?
Did you try to download something like a movie to check the speed or test the speed in some other way to make a comparison?
What's the hardware version of your W8970? The firmware is up to date or not?
