Hi folks,


Long story short I upgraded from adsl2 too vdsl.


ADSL2 14M down 1 UP, same as wired

VDSL 8M down 9 UP, Wired 27 down 9-10 UP.




I seriosuly dont see why my vdsl would be less than ADSL2 on wireless


Using Netgear 6300D, wireless card ac compatible, using a 5ghz channel.



Gaming online has really good pings but any web browsing or video streaming is extremely slow

Well to be a little more of help to you.
Wireless isnt guaranteed throughput. All it is a convenience technology. Have you run inSSIDer and made sure your not sitting on a busy channel? Are you sure you are on 5GHz. Have you made sure your network card isnt negotiating 12Mbp/s 20mhz or anything like that?

And more importantly what is your signal strength? 5Ghz doesn't travel through things such as walls as well as 2.4Ghz.

You don't have a VDSL issue - you have a wireless issue.

+1.  Title of the thread should really be changed.  Sounds like OPs VDSL is running fine based on wired throughput.

So I find it weird that on the adsl my 5ghz connection gets 14m down and on vdsl same connection sept its bridged is lower.


So for VDSL is bridged to a telecom pace business adsl2+vdsl+fibre modem to my netgear d6300 modem/router, standard settings nothing really different that I can think of.


So these are pictures of the speeds and connections plus some pictures of inSSider

- Wired.


- 2.4ghz wireless.


- 5ghz wireless.


- inSSider Chanalyzer.

- inSSider Office ANALYZE.

- inSSider Office CHANNEL.

- inSSider Office CHANNEL #2.

- inSSider Office.


Oh also my modem/router is across the room from me .... about 3-4 metres. no walls.

provide direct links to them maybe? geekzone loves to crop them down and surve them up via the cdn. makes it hard to see full screen screenshots.

As others have said: It's not your VDSL causing the low throughput. Use an ethernet cable if you want the best performance.
Try changing the wireless channel your router is set to to one that no one else is using. You have a lot of other networks in range (noise as far as your router and WLAN card are concerned) which is what is causing the problem.
If changing the channel doesn't help, use an ethernet cable.

But why would my ADSL get max throughput and not the VDSL?.


2.4ghz on ADSL is 14 down, 5ghz is 14 down.    2.4ghz on VDSL is 22-24 down and 5ghz on VDSL is 8 down
