of course help. I use point to point connection so instead of a modem, I have a radio antenna receiving signal from the tower and the antenna connected to the Draytek router via the ethernet. if I connect the ethernet from the antenna directly to the laptop and perform the speedtest using openspeedtest.net I get varying results from 12 mbps to 26 mbps although they claim they are giving me 50 mbps. And when I do the same test from a desktop (also connected via ethernet cable) I get different results (about 3 to 5 mbps). I need to know is this normal because I have more computers connected to the network? or do I have problem with my network devices? or am i being duped by my ISP?Are you looking for sympathy or help? If the latter please confirm that the speedtest is with one late model computer connected by ethernet directly to the modem and specify the service used for the speedtest. Also tell us the brand and model of the modem.
