Slow Speeds from HomeHub3000

Hi,

I have Bell Fibe service with the Home Hub 3000 router/modem. The HomeHub is showing download speeds of 1Gb+, but the most I can get on any of my home devices is usually less than 100Mbps (currently 67.6Mbps on my Samsung S9 seated about 3ft away, and 82.0Mbps on my desktop computer which is directly wired to the HomeHub with a Cat5e cable). The Bell technician tells me that as long as the speeds are acceptable on the HomeHub unit (which they are), any further troubleshooting is the responsibility of the homeowner.

Hope someone can help. Thanks in advance!

Are you paying for 1Gb service? Do you have fibre to the home location?

As you are probably aware, WiFi speeds can vary a lot depending on the device and situation.

Your wired connection should provide you with the service you're paying for, however, the computer may have a limitation in the card, or perhaps something in the Windows setup if you're using Windows. Do some research on Windows Auto-Tuning and try disabling it and re-enabling it.

Why can't Bell correctly post the program times correctly? Some programs do not start on the hour or half hour but Bell does not adjust the Guide time grid for the PVR to record correctly.

Bell uses the time the channel provides and doesn't change it. Bell's guide is capable of handling one-minute increments, so if the time is incorrect, the problem is probably with the channel.
