I've just moved from an old 50 down 10 up plan on fibre to 100 down 20 up. All was good when the speed was swapped over going from a constant 52 down 10 up to 101 down 20 up.

 

All good, however yesterday i restarted the hg 659, now the  speedtest.net peaks out at 85 down 20 up at any time of the day.

 

Yes I'm testing on a wired desktop and nothing else is in use.

 

Does anyone have any ideas? is the hg659 on it way out.

Have you turned off for a Min and then restarted the ONT, then the HG 659 and then the Computer and then retried.

 

Hope this helps.

Restarting the ONT wont do anything as all it does is convert fibre to copper.

Appears that the hg659 doesnt correctly report the lan port speed in the hg659 settings

 

1st machine was being detected as connected at 100 mbit  (yet windows network conection said it was connected at the full 1gbit)

 

2nd pc was being detected as 10 mbit (yet windows said it was connected at the full 1gbit)

 

I powered off the ONT and pulled the network cables gave it a few mins and hooked it all back up. Lan 1 pc is shown as connected at the full 1000 mbit. However the other desktop on Lan port 2 is still detected as @ 10mbit.

 

Desktop 1 speedtest results are back as they should be

Have you tried swapping Ethernet cables?

 

Power cycling the ONT will make zero difference as the issue has nothing to do with that.

Well I understand Jesus was once reported to turning water into wine, so in this modern day and age I am sure ALU, Huawei etal can manage a simple glass fibre to copper magic :)
