kiwirock: 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz are public spectrum for unlicensed devices. In a big city, it's just tough if it doesn't perform.

I think there's a flavour of Wi-Fi coming that uses something insane like 63GHz or something which is also unlicensed spectrum. But that's probably a mile away from ever happening on domestic stuff yet.

There are always things to improve wireless but it will cost a few more digits than a $110 router :)

If you have money to waste, you can Faraday cage your room if you wish.

Seeing that you are already squeezing 7Mbps, a more powerful radio may help. Most are only around 40-80mw. You can get some 1W plus units but that's another $130 bucks and won't improve the upstream but will help to drown out any other nearby Wi-Fi noise on similar channels (but not analogue devices and microwave ovens etc...).

Have you made sure your wireless devices aren't doing updates and downloads etc... too at the same time?

There's only so much half-duplex bandwidth available on an access point and the radio can only transmit in between interference as fast as the slowest connected client busy doing things (usually the furthest from the access point).

Change the channels, change the band, try a bigger RF output access point, if all else fails, wire it.







i dont really want to spend any money as in one year i am planning on getting fiber.However, in this year i cant just enjoy with such a low speed as i am a very heavy user.As i mentioned before everything is connected to the wi fi(not at the same time of course) and speed is very important.For examply my tv cant buffer the data and if connection is bad its just lagging.and i cant just pause it and wait till it downloads it.I tried to change bandidth to 20 but nothing has chaged...i only got ping twice as big

As already mentioned, inssider will only show wifi networks at 5ghz, not the other household things working at that frequency that can influence

This is not going to solve your issues, you need to spend money on your network first else you'll experience the same speed constraints.

You could have a 10GbE WAN connection, but if your wifi still sucks you'll get poor speeds.

because the solutions you provided doesnt work(change bandwidth to 20 and so on)also i changed to 5hz and still experience low speed. some of you say that its because of other items which work on hte same frequency...but the range is shot and i dont think my fridge work on 5ghz lol...i can admit that my kettle is on all the time so mb it reduces my speed?  so everything except the laptop works on 5ghz now(didnt try xbox or ps,but ipad phone and tv are on 5ghz)will try to play and make laptop to work on 5ghz,but speed is not stable and i still get low speed(50/50) even on 5ghz

But i am very happy that everyone is trying to help.Thanks a lot for your desire to contribute and help to solve the issue

i called telecom and iasked the to reset the port.Before i did that i checked the speed 4 timers and was getting 7.8 8.7 7.4 6.7.I used ipad 2 to measure the speed.After we did the reset i checked the speed again and now i am getting 14.7 15.20 14.6 14.So the speed became almost twice as fast as it was after the did reset the port.They were surprised and asked to monitor the speed and they will call me on monday.So the question is how is that possible?

laptop is giving me 15-22 mbs

It's not Telecom's problem. Sort out your WiFi network.

Please read up on DLM. You need to not touch your modem for 2 weeks else it'll severally affect your speeds. This is just coincidence and you really need to post your line stats and do some research before you ask them to do a port reset thinking it's their problem. Like I've said before and this is the last time I'll say it, speedtests are not an indication on your line speeds. Read up on the many threads on Geekzone explaining all that's been said in this thread.

There we go, it's confirmed. It's not Telecom, it's your WiFi network combined with interference, case closed.

Upstream figure is a bit crap, I have never seen under 10 on anything that will actually get installed, so it may have an issue still.

Just noticed this - Line Attenuation (Up/Down) [dB]: 33.5 / 12.2

Something is wrong.

What a painful thread to read, clearly a wifi problem yet persists with a port reset

That'll be distance and the fact he did a port reset, would have messed with stats a bit. The problem lies with WiFi interference and not his VDSL connection.

BigFox - Have you considered power line modems - they may give you good connectivity at better speeds
e.g. http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=NETTEN0200&name=TENDA-200Mbps-Powerline-Adapter-Broadcom-Up-to-200 should go up to 200Mbps

well i dont know anything about it thats why i came for advice and not judgment here. However, what i get from some ppl here is-i told u its interference and u dumb didnt trust me,now enjoy with you low speed.
I tried to do everything u sugested and it didnt work so i went for reset. If there is an interference at 5ghz then i dont know how ppl get over 100 in other huge cities(apartment i live in is nothing compared to other countries apartments)...or they live in a small village with one access point?

Hey now, that was uncalled for. You're being very vague on your answers which makes you difficult to try and help. He raised a very good point here and it could be worth investing in.

And this is my 2000th post.
