Dear All,

 

 

 

I have Vodafone gigabit fibre which was running at close to 1000/500 but since I returned from oversea it seems to be running at less than 100 for both downloading and up loading.

 

Looking at the speednet graph for what it worth show rapid download to 100 then the graph plateaus at 100 or so. I wondered if I had been changed from a 1000/500 plan to a 100/100 plan but vodafone says no.

 

I've spoken to vodafone and they have tried logging into my router and resetting it which hasnt improved anything so I am in the process of creating a log of times over  few days along with pathping and tracert at their request so they can get a chorus tech to come and visit. I have also turned off/on the routers and switches too.

 

I have a network with a gigabit switches and cat6 cabling which also connects to my synology NAS.

 

I have tried connecting the pc directly to the vodafone router using two different cat 6 cables which did not help.

 

My w10 pc (i7 4790K 32G RAM) has gigabit ports and under device manager no error are listed and network properties Ethernet (intel conection I218-V) says it talking at 1000/1000.

 

I also have a witopia vpn functionality but it isnt running (it creates virtual network adapters but none are active at the moment)

 

I downloaded a 6Gb file from my synology NAS by using file explorer and downloaded it in 55 seconds with the download graph saying speed was 113MBps.

 

 

 

I dont have an other PC with gigabit ethernet ports and I am worried that the PC could be the source because the max download doesnt rise above 100

 

Does my ability to download a file from my NAS at 113MBps (6GB over about a minute) exclude the posibility that my pc is connecting to the internet a 100 Mbs despite it being a 1000Mbps ether net port?

 

Could there be a problem with the router only connecting at 100?

 

 

 

A.

It could be your router but you did not mention make or model.

The default Vodafone one that comes with fiber connection. Huawei 659

Been running fine since December last year but something seems to have changed in the last few weeks when I was overseas

I'm a bit nervous that after a chorus tech visit it will turn out to be something obvious like my PC as the new "restrictions" of 100Mbps seems too close to 100Mbps of a port not talking at full speed. (Which would be embarrassing)

Does being able to download from my NAS at near gigabit speed exclude my PC from being the problem or would using file explorer use a different protocol than Opera/explorer over the internet?

Not another slow giga fibre thread ;)

Someone needs a sticky on this.

Let's start at the beginning - 

 

ONT - orange or green? restart

 

ONT - router cable chewed by mouse?

 

Router - restart. see modem stats is it connected at 1Gbps to ONT

 

router - computer cable/wifi

 

Computer

 

you said NAS - computer at Gigabit speed means not your computer or its cable

More like a Vodafone configuration than your PC - and I don't understand why Chorus would have to visit site to determine why is 100 and not 1000 - not like physical install would limit speed of light. This is certainly a profile thing.

As always with Huawei routers - have you ever done a factory reset on that thing. That's assuming the ONT is orange (umm can't remember if orange or green is 1Gbps)

Thanks for suggestions.

 

I asked about whether the plan had changed as I think we all agree that a 100Mbps limit does sound suspiciously like Im in the wrong plan or something is talking at 100 not 1000.

 

Why a tech visit? Thats what vodafone person thought about after we spent 30 minutes reseting things, swapping cables etc.

 

I would have thought a fibre problem would be either it goes or doesnt or it had large variability in download speeds. Not resonably constant at just under 100.

 

(I dont know enought about these things)

 

 

 

ONT

 

- power - solid green

 

- optical - Green regular flashing

 

- LAN1 - orange largely constant, occasional flicker.

 

 

 

Huawei

 

- Power - green

 

-WAN - solid green

 

- internet - green flashing

 

- WLAN - green flashing

 

- VOIP - solid green

 

- LAN1-4 - Green intermittent flashing.

 

 

 

Router was reset by Vodafone I think in that the wifi ssid changed to vodafoneXXX and the password was reset.

 

Also we tried turning off the router for 1 minute a couple of time too.

On router the LAN ports all connected at full 1000

 

ONT to Router goes in port WAN and havent found somewhere  to see the WAN speed.

 

Might swap the ONT to router cable, as now I think about it I didnt try that swap..

Pretty sure ONT green = 100Mbps, orange = 1Gbps.

 

Either ONT or Chorus issue here. [Does a router/router cable issue make it go green too??][ie does the orange/green reflect a service connection speed or router connection speed?]

 

 

 

Does your router stat say connected at 1Gpbs?

No somewhere in the router stat it will say connected to ONT at 1Gbps (or something else)

Swapped the router to ONT cable - no change.

 

Then power cycled the ONT - no change.

 

Ping 22 Download 96 Mbps upload 63.02 Mbps

 

 

 

Argh

 

Thats enough. I'm off to enjoy the sun.

Didn't you say a download from your NAS was at 113Mbps throughput despite a presumably gigabit link? The Chorus fibre connects at 2.5Gbps shared between 30 or so users on the PON, so that shouldn't be a constant limit. Chorus should be able to tell Voda whether you are on the right profile and whether they are seeing any congestion. I guess you have checked that all your patch cords appear in good condition...





Time to find a new industry!

Looks like it's almost certain to be Chorus, barring a router issue. That's why wondering whether router stats state connection speed is 1Gbps or not.

No you read it wrong it was 113MBps or 113MB/s so there is nothing wrong with the PC on their network

@joker97

 

Trying to find under the settings what the speed is from the router to the ONT.

 

Chorus ONT faq says a yellow light means 1Gb/s from the ONT to the internet.

 

 

 

Trying to find what the speed of the WAN connection from the router to the ONT.

 

Under the Main menu of the router.

 

Internet is 

 

 

Physical link:                        Up /Full /1000

 

Downstream speed (Mbit/s):   1000

 

Upstream speed (Mbit/s):       1000

 

Access type:                         Ethernet

 

 

 


 

Under LAN is

 

 

Interface IP Address Status Mode Speed

 

LAN1 192.168.1.1  Connected  Full  1000Mbps

 

LAN2 192.168.1.1  Connected  Full  1000Mbps

 

LAN3 192.168.1.1  Connected  Full  1000Mbps

 

LAN4 192.168.1.1  Connected  Full  1000Mbps

 

 

 

Next step is going to be trying a Ubuntu dvd in case its a windows driver problem.
