How has your service been since Mikey? Mine seems to have levelled out to a much more manageable 5-10mbps - a far cry from the dial up speeds I had to tolerate for over a week, but well down from the 60/70+ I had on average.
Hi @liveswired

I'm delighted to say that it's fantastic! Notwithstanding the PoE issue in my new thread I'm getting between 50 and 75Mbps throughout the day.

She who must be obeyed and I have been watching 4k HDR films on Netflix with NO buffering! It's the work of the devil I say!!

Also, are you pointing the router towards the tower, the front of the router should be facing it directly. That made a huge difference to my signal quality. I eventually bought 2 rabbit ear antenna off eBay and surprisingly they increased the quality of my connection by quite a margin.

Mr Dave - time for my daft question. Does facing the front of the router towards the tower really make that much difference and does this apply to other routers (ie B310)

Just from my personal experience with the internal antenna on the B535, I used cellmapper.net to find out where my local mast was and had to point it towards that to get the best stats.
