Have installed M1 Fibre 100 Mbps plan today with EnGenius ESR9850 router and using a Wifi USB adapter on desktop PC.

Done a speed test check but only achieving 18+ Mbps download and 16+ upload speed. Any advise on the slow speed?


Thanks.
the usual suspects will be:

1. some backend problem at M1's side. you will need to do a wired speed test to see if its your fault or M1's fault.

2. your wireless router and usb wifi adapter too far away, too many obstacles in the way to degrade the wifi strength and signal.

3. are you running the wireless network on wireless-g or wireless-n.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.

2. router in living room while wifi USB adapter inside bedroom but no far apart. Just a wall that separate them and direct router to wifi USB adapter distance is only 2.5 m apart.

3. no idea. I'm using the EnGenius ESR9850 router with default setting and wifi USB adapter is an old D-Link (DWL-G122).

Thanks. :-)

don't use wifi to test
use wired first
if wired works means is wifi issue
from the looks is your dlink. fault
and not engenis

u need both side to be on high speed equipment and no blocking and interfeeanc to enjoy both high speed actually

your d-link confirm need to change cos it is running on wireless-g.

the theoretical max speed for wireless-g is 54mbps. real life speed will be much lower.

Hi all,

I am using Engenius 9850 router with a M1 100 Mpbs plan. The wired speed is excellent at about 95 Mbps (download) and more than 60 Mbps (upload).

However, the wireless is on the 802.11g network although the router is 802.11n capable. WHow can I set the router to transmit wireless signals on the "n" network which I believe is faster?

Would appreciate any advice, thanks so much!

You are right! I have just checked, my wireless adapter is a wireless-g one. I can reach about 20 Mbps upload and download.

Installation for M1 100Mbps fibre broadband was completed yesterday. Installation was fast, all done within 5 minutes. The optical power level was -19.6dBm.
Connected the ASUS N56U router to ONT LAN port1. The result was done via my MBP wireless connection.

Thumbs down

m1 sucks .. but cheap .. i do get decent speed 70-80+mbps on wired speed... though dislike the international throttling
they cant even co-ordinate with opennet to get the job done, cheap is useless when they is no service to be delivered.

Issues with Opennet is not new, and all the RSP do face issues with them.
I believe IDA has stepped in on the issues.

Solving it, is not as simple as you think.
Opennet outsource to Singtel. I am not sure if Singtel subs it out further to its subsidiaries or sub contractors.

Singtel may not report the status of each job back to Opennet immediately, most likely in a batch at the end of the day. Opennet then updates the RSP. (Eg. M1, Myrepublic, Starhub)

Things don't operate like DHL, status updates every step of way.
Sometimes it might just be a human mistake at Opennet, activate the wrong port.

Not all RSP are having their own OpCo, eg. Myrepublic depends on NC.
So that adds another layer. The whole NGN involves quite a lot of parties in the background, which makes troubleshooting more difficult and lengthy.

While is frustrating when hiccups happen, that is how our SG NGN is structured.
Hopefully things improve in the near future.

i think the cock up between m1 and opennet is merely human error which to end users like us have to take the hit in spite of waiting for 2 weeks for 1st installation, yet is still sloppy. how can this be tolerate? how much times is m1 needed to get the job done?

the answer for me to any RSP would be, u either do it right the very first time, or you don't have to do it all just my 2.5 cents worth. thanks for your reply. cheers. D
