Ok, we keep having endless transient problems with our Sony smart TV so I have been trying to do everything I can to keep things working. One of the things I noticed was that when Netflix does its timer spiral my speed on ADSL was diving from 16 to about 6 or 7 so I thought maybe get a new router (mine is 5 yrs old) and go to VDSL and it may improve things.
OK so I just had it installed, what my speed test tells me that at the moment we have 13.2mbps??. My ADSL norm was 15.7 mbps. My upload has gone from 1 to 10.
Also I notice latency has gone from 10 to 22.
First question, I cant quite get what latency is but generally is 22 better than 10?
The installer guy said that down at the garage coming into the house, we were getting 56mbps? So why am I seeing so much less on my PC?
Set up is currently a new Huawei VDSL router via a switch which radiates down to various hardwired points around the house. Because its 30m long, we have an aged dlink (5 yrs old ADSL) switched on as a repeater down in the high traffic areas connected to one of the broadband Ethernet connections to ensure wireless coverage.
Switch is about 3 years old.
So my question is do I need to update my switch or upgrade my old adsl router to a new VDSL one or does it not matter as it is only a repeater?
Why am I getting 13mbps? Is it because its Friday night and heavy traffic?? or could anything about the setup be affecting it? Do I need to change any settings anywhere.
PC is less than a year old.
