Wi-Fi Speed with Gigabit Package?

I got the 1gig speed and average 250-300mbps with 10 different devices connected. What's everyone else running? ?

Re: Wi-Fi Speed with Gigabit Package?

250-300, over wireless?  Thats pretty good actually.

Wireless, even with the right protocols (the highest AC).  And the best hardware, highest end wireless modem with transmitters, and the best card in the receiving device.. you MIGHT Be able to get close to 1gbs.  
But under standard conditions.. and that the transmitter in the rogers modem is mid range at best..
250-300 is pretty good.

Doing a WIRED connection, hopefully you should be able to receive that full speed on a test.
(good to know, that you are getting the FULL speed through the connection.  The chance of you ever needing that much on ONE connection.. probably never.  Nothing would be able to feed you that much data all at once.)

Wi-Fi is a VERY finicky technology.  Technically, on paper and test results quoted in marketing materials, you should get blisteringly fast speeds.  However, those tests are done under laboratory conditions in isolated anechoic chambers, between two devices that are only a few feet apart and TOTALLY shielded from the outside world.

 

In real-world urban and suburban environments, your actual Wi-Fi speed will be significantly less, and that's normal, for a variety of reasons.

 

Your Wi-Fi network may not be the only one using that channel/frequency.  If any other device (on any network) is transmitting on that same frequency, your device will have to wait for the airspace to become clear before it can transmit.  (If two devices transmit at the same time, their signals will become jumbled.  You can't overcome this with a bigger, badder Wi-Fi router with more transmit power; it will likely make the situation even worse.)

 

Regulations limit the maximum transmission power at a given frequency.  An Access Point may have better than ample transmit power but that's only one side of the link.  If the client device (such as mobile phone) has a relatively weak transmitter, at some point it will be barely discernible over the background noise.

 

Wi-Fi also uses different data encoding schemes with different attainable bitrates depending on the link conditions.  At greater distances, transmission speeds will drop and the client will use more airtime to transmit its data.  Meanwhile, other clients still have to wait for the frequency to become clear before they can transmit.  One of the worst things that you can do on Wi-Fi is have a very active client with a very poor link because it will consume a disproportionate amount of airtime and kill network performance for everybody.  Even if your network is well engineered, if you and your neighbour are sharing the same Wi-Fi channels (which you should NOT be) or anybody in the area that you "see" transmitting with a signal strength of -85 dBm or stronger, their Wi-Fi problems will become your Wi-Fi problems and vice versa.

 

With any good Wi-Fi design, you want to be able to achieve high quality connections using as little transmit power as possible.  That will maximize Wi-Fi performance not only for you but for your neighbours as well.  You also need to be meticulous with the components (Access Points, mesh nodes, Pods, etc.) that you select and where you place them and how you configure them, and be cognizant of anything that can cause local interference or block/impede the signal.

Re: Wi-Fi Speed with Gigabit Package?

Just got Rogers Ignite TV and 1GIG Internet speeds have dropped. Avging about 300KB on my laptop, and 100KB on my phone. Please let me know if anyone can help.

Re: Wi-Fi Speed with Gigabit Package?

Thanks for your post @asdasdadddddddd!

 

Have you tried running a speed test while the connection is wired through the ethernet cable? 

 

Could you also let us know the troubleshooting steps you have gone through so far?

 

Thank you very much. Looking forward to your reply!
