Hi all.

 

Vodafone fibre 200 / 20 connection.

 

Surface Pro 3. 5GHz Wireless. Download 154.55, Upload 19.83, Ping 10ms. Surface is 30 cm from router.

 

                               Wired. Download 94.36, Upload 6.65, Ping 9ms.

 

                                          Download 76.58, Upload 16.15, Ping 8ms.

 

 

 

Mac Mini. 5GHz Wireless. Download 203.00, Upload 24.1, Ping 9ms. Mac Mini 50cm from Router.

 

                        Wired. Download 204.00, Upload 24.4, Ping 7ms.

 

 

 

iPad Pro 10.5. 5GHz Wireless. Download 203.00, Upload 20.7, Ping 5ms.

 

 

 

Any ideas why the Surface Pro would be worse on a wired connection than a Wireless? And the wireless so low at 154.55, when compared to Mac Mini and iPad?

 

 

 

TIA.

Depends on what network device it has. look in device manager for what it is called and how its connected.

No Ethernet port. I'm using a USB to Ethernet adapter. If that is the issue, then so be it. But why would the Wireless speeds be any different?

USB-ethernet adaptors cannot be expected to give excellent performance so wouldn't use that for performance testing.

 

As for WiFi - different numbers of chains in the client will probably be the reason for different throughput.

 

The client app on different OS's can also come into play - testing using a web browser isn't recommended for high speed connections

Not using a web browser, using the Ookla apps.

If you've got a USB 3 to Gig ethernet adapter stands to reason the Surface is treating it as USB 2.  Check your drivers.

Set it to view and device by connection and expand out ACPI pc then pci Express and look for the Ethernet controller. It should be under usb 3.0 hubs etc. If it's under a 2.0 then that will cripple it's speeds. USB to Ethernet is really for convince not speed.
