How do I perform a speed test on my link?
To perform a speed test, please go to www.speedtest.net.
- Please ensure that ALL wireless devices are disconnected from the WiFi - cellphones may be using bandwidth in the background which can skew the results.
- Take a laptop or PC and connect it with an Ethernet cable to the router - if this is not possible please position the device you are using to perform the speed test as close as possible to the router.
- Run at least five consecutive speed tests selecting a different server for each speed test to get a good average result.
We do not recommend speed tests to be performed using a mobile phone as the WiFi radio on your mobile phone is small, thus low powered, and may not give an accurate reading. Mobile speed test applications are designed to test mobile network speeds.
What speeds can I expect to get during the peak hours of 6 pm-10 pm?
MYiweb will endeavour to deliver an average of at least 60% of the speed of the service you have selected during peak hours.
One of my devices cannot connect to the WiFi?
If all of your other devices can connect, please contact the vendor of the device that you are having problems with for support.
What warranty does my router carry?
The router you are supplied with will carry a one year manufacturers warranty against manufacturing defects. This does not include lightning damage or damage caused by poor handling of the device.
