    Lan Cable - does it go defective ??down to 100M slower than Wifi

    Hi there

    (Solved problem -- see next post in this thread).)

    Do the LAN connectors on a Router go defective - or does the wiring also fail.

    I've 2 LAN connectors wried up -- I noticed on both of the computers the LAN led switched from Green (1G) to Orange (100M),

    Find it strange that TWO LAN connections on different computers should BOTH go slow.

    Still got better theoretical connection via 5GHZ Wifi -- which should be BONKERS !!!!

    Hi folks

    Found the answer -- SKY Q box connected to LAN -- removed from LAN and set to Wifi -- now all working again OK and LAN LED lights miraculously all GREEN again.

    So it looks like if you've a SLOW device on a LAN all the other ports on the router get "hosed" --- shouldn't happen but it's a cheap router that the cable company threw in when they installed fibre optic connection -- I'll just use it as a backup / secondary router for visitors wifi access and buy a decent commercial router.

    The extra hardware security and facilities of commercial routers are well worth paying a bit extra for. I should theoretically be able to get 10G from a commercial router and decent LAN connection in any case.

    My ISP also has very fast Internet - up to nearly 1Ggb/s (bits) - but the 10G would be for Internal LAN.
