Wired connection always has trouble connecting to sites

803 Views 8 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Snkkers

My wired connection has this on/off problem where it can't connect to websites often and is much slower than my WiFi devices. It happens on all wired connections on the router. Occasionally the internet works completely fine on the wired connection. However, all WiFi devices work fine even when the wired connections have problems
I've tried changing DNS and updating device software but it didn't do much to help. Happened for a long time now (from Windows 7 computers to Windows 10).

What can I do?

You picked a server in Vancouver, British Columbia for the speed test. Test says you are in California. Pick a server in your area to test against. The farther away the more variables for the test.

Did you update the nic driver? If not here is a link
