One of the new things are the firewalls in the routers or such. Why this is, is on the web. As a router is your natural firewall (again I'm going to shortchange you here) I turn that off and test again.
Good luck but there are settings to tinker with and I might guess them all but this one seems to come up a lot.
-> Then we have WiFi. Connect with Ethernet as more and more WiFi things clog the air.
I've been running my ISP's router on my ADSL line for a three years now (EE BRIGHTBOX). I've always managed to achieve roughly 5.6mbps.
Recently I upgraded the router to a Netgear Nighthawk R7000. As this router doesn't have a built in modem I've used a 10 year old Belkin router in modem mode to serve it. My speeds have dropped to a consistent 4.20mbps. Most annoyingly this seems to have dropped me below the required speed to stream 1080p.
Could it be the case that the aging modem is causing the drop in speeds? Should I be looking to get a new DSL modem? Or could there be something else at play here.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
