566601, Downloads Speed
Posted by wtmpi, Wed Aug-19-20 01:14 AM
I am paying Spectrum for 200 mbps download. So I am told. For the last month of checking my speed I have not been above 25mps. I see advertised the devices to plug in throughout your residence to increase speed. Do they help or is it the modem that will not maintain the speed. I am wireless. Would it help if I am plugged directly in to the internet.

What is your device/computer? Wireless you won't hit 200. Wireless g you won't get much more than 20mbps Wireless n about 100mbps.

I had a similar issue but in my case I subscribe at 100 mbps.

I first had to update my modem to one that supports the higher speed. A list of supported modems for each speed level.

To get the speed on wifi I had to upgrade to an a/c mimo router that supports the higher wifi speed.

I now have >100 mbps on wifi and greaster range to boot.


Good luck!

Sorry, I'm working on a linux laptop right now and had posting
problem,

Line should say that a list of supported modems for each speed
level is posted on the Spectrum site.

> checking my speed

How?

Note that in order to see "200" (among other things) the source must support at least that speed in their sending of a file.

So if slowdownloadsite.com only sends at 20 MB/s, you'll never see 200 from them.

What are these devices?
(Sounds like snake oil to me.)
