Ok, so I have hooked up my new pair of Deco M9 Plus' in router mode.
I attached to my Arris TG862 - and disabled the Arris Wireless Network.
I have 100mbps service through NewWave cable.
The Deco M9's hooked up easily and I have one in the half-basement (tri-level house) with the Cable Modem and the other about 35 feet away - through 1 wall. I get full bar coverage throughout my entire 2500 sqft home - perfect!
The Deco App tests the "Internet Speed" - the speed from the cable modem to the Deco units - it consistently reports 110 - 115 - perfect!
I consistently get "Ookla Speedtest" results of 25Mpbs download (one-fourth what it should be) - and 4-5 Mbps uploade (this is correct).
8 Devices connected
- 2 Android Phones
- 1 Windows 10 Laptop
- 1 Cannon Printer
- 1 Samsung TV
- 1 Dishnetwork Hopper
- 1 Chromecast
- 1 Amazon Dot
Deco App - 112.9Mbps Down - 4.0Mbps Up - Perfect!
Samsung Android Phone "Network Speed" (at the driver level) - 195Mbps (Why is this so low?)
Dell Windows 10 Laptop "Network Speed" (at the driver level) 5gh channel 48 - 325Mbps (Shouldn't this be up to 433?)
No other device doing much of anything...
All of that seems OK - now lets go to Speedtest.net and Google and measure actual throughput....
Samsung Android Phone -
- Google - 25.2 Down???? 2.99 Up
- Speedtest app - 47.7Mbps Down ?? 3.39 Up
Dell Windows 10 Laptop
- Google - 23.2Mbps Down
- Speedtest.net - 32Mbps - without moving the laptop...
Why is Google Speedtest consistently slower - and why are both speedtests under 100Mbps - without any activity from the other devices?
I really love the coverage that I have in my home now - but I want to understand the speed degradation???
