I have a fibre internet connection which runs through a Fritzbox with ethenet ports and wireless connections. I have a 100/50 MB connection with Snap.
I ran a speed test this morning on both the wireless and the wired in connection, and have found that the upload speed is very slow on a wired connection. During the speed test with a wired connection I would get 92MB download and only 10MB upload. When I tested this with the wireless connection I got 85MB download and 48mb upload. These were both done with the same laptop. I have run this test multiple time as  I have only recently got fibre. In the past I have had Wired speeds of 95MB / 45MB.
Why is the wired upload now running so much slower than the wireless connection? Any ideas on this?

Try a different network cable. And do you have another computer you can test from? Also try and get a Mod to move this thread into the LAN forum. As this is a LAN related problem.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I have now hard wired another computer to the network and it seems to be getting good up and down speeds of 92 down and 49 up.
Must be something within my laptop.
Also how do I get an admin to move this?

10Mbps sounds like a duplex negotiation issue either from a dodgy cable or a NIC set incorrectly.

Also moved to another forum.

sbiddle: 10Mbps sounds like a duplex negotiation issue either from a dodgy cable or a NIC set incorrectly.

Getting 92Mb/s in the other direction suggests the link hasn't negotiated to 10Mb/s and probably not half duplex either.
