I am having very real connection problem just at present to the point that I struggle to do anything at all on-line. I put the computer on wireless and moved it to the front room That has weakened the signal, cutting the nominal bandwidth from 100 to 54 Mbps per second. I say nominal because the real speeds were always a lot less. However, it may also be that I have just run out of my download allowance.
I am trying to run a test to see actual speeds, although downloading the test connection is proving difficult. It has been downloading for ten minutes!
While I'm waiting, the practical effect is that I simply can't post properly. I don't want to return the computer to the previous configuration, I really want to work in the front office. If I'm right about the choke but still have some upload capacity, the wireless connection status shows that 70,000 data packets have gone out in the last four hours as compared to just 19,000 in, then I may be able to work round the problem to some degree.
This post is a practical test. If I'm right it should upload. The speedtest download has just failed again. Signing off to post.
Well, it did upload. It was slower, but within acceptable limits. However, the blog front page itself did not load properly. I am going to focus over the rest of the month on preparing material that I can then post, so actual posting will be limited until I sort this one out.
The amended heading says it all, but I will do a proper thank you post. I may not have solved the problem entirely, but Netgear technical support is superb.
