Hi all, i am currently using a ADSL connection that is synced at almost 24mbps but am only getting less than 4mbps throughput on speedtests and downloads.

 

 

 

Have used it in the past and gotten around 16-17mbps with the same HG659 modem.

 

Thanks

Right, so your setting wifi interference most likely then.

 

 

 

I'd try using 5ghz if possible.

I would look at your network, it's pretty heavily utilized.

 

 

 

If that's normal usage and not something malicious power to you :)

 

I would recommend a move to VDSL.

Yeah i'd guess it's just normal usage, have been doing a few speed tests to see if it has improved and there was some Xbox game updates but I've only really been using this connection since the start of the week.

 

The connection has been mainly idle as there was another Fibre connection which has been disconnected.

Why don't you move to a VDSL connection?

I think this is likely a Spark issue.  Under investigation.  Have requested the OP to PM me his details.

This should be fixed now.

 

 

 

@cbrpilot caught the issue on the configuration.

 

Your testing to zeus threw off the traffic checks i was doing last night.. my apologies for sending you on that hunt.

 

 

 

I'd still recommend moving over to that ONT port :)

This issue is now solved. :)

 

Thank you to @hio77 & @cbrpilot for solving this problem. Spark has a good presence here.

 

 

Yes, fibre would be preferred but living costs etc...
