My wifi all of a sudden is ridiculously slow it's the first time it's been slow since i got it. It's so sluggish I basically can't use it I'v tried turning it off and back on and moving it but nothing has help it started getting slow when the nbn started getting put in my erea is that just a coincidence or is it the reason why?
Have you tried plugging directly into the modem to see if that makes a difference?
It's possible works in your street/area with the NBN have disrupted your service but it really shouldn't. You could have a faulty line now though in which case you'd want to call tech support to have it looked into.
Ahh I see. I assumed it was an ADSL service sorry. Given this type of service, it'd be very unlikely NBN has played any part in this. It could be increased load in your area or a problem with the modem itself or something completely different.
I would try going to a friend or families place that live a good distance away so that you're connecting to a new tower and trying it there and see how that goes.
Hiw old is your router? the do have a habbit depending on brand to fry in the first 12 months which us usually within the warranty period pending specefuc brand requirements.if the capicitor is the issue the device will drop in and out, be fine for a bit after a power cycle...
But i am leaning towards ur service, do you have a mobile? What is the reception like on you phone? Who is the provider? Are u in a new housing area, new estates with mass people moving in, could be network congestion...
My home wifi is very slow when uploading to the internet. Why on earth did they just allocate 2m for uploads? Downloading used to be good, now is becoming very annoying slow. I don't bother ringing Optus anymore bc they usually give the same technical advise. - like turn your modern off and on, or that it depends where you live and how many others are on the internet in the neighborhood. I am thinking of buying a new router to replace the Optus supplied modem. Will I need Optus permission to use or replace their modem?
Hey @JAXTON57, you won't be able to BYO modem for a Cable connection as we authenticate the connection via the MAC address, but feel free to connect up your own router to our modem if you wish to.
