Does Charter offer or deliver different internet speeds to households? I suddenly been having downloads problems and since I do not have a computer that will accept an “Ethernet” cable. All I can do is a speed test via the Wi-Fi and it’s around
15-20 MBPS. Have unplugged the router and Wi-Fi for 30 sec or so and nothing changed or improved. I have a D-link Wi-Fi that is set at 2.4. Should I change it to the 5.0 mode? Any ideas out there? Thanks

Hey Gutter. Based on the download speeds you are getting, I would think that the WIFI is what is holding you back (I thought the minimum package from Charter was 60Mbps but I could be wrong). I think Charter has packages from 60Mbps up to 350Mbps. In any case, your slower speed could be related to your WIFI signal. Even older 2.4Ghz WIFI protocols should be able to get you above 20Mbps so I am wondering if your computer is farther away from your WIFI router?

5Ghz is much faster than 2.4ghz (as long as both the computer and the router support it). It is also shorter range so if you are far away from your router, then switching to 5Ghz could make things worse. If you are not that far from your router then give 5Ghz a try (again as long as both sides support it). I have both 2.4 and 5 at home and I always notice when I connect at 2.4 because my speeds will be 50-100 Mbps and then when I connect on 5Ghz with a decent signal I get 200-300. Do some playing!

Have Fun!
-Craig

Craig,
Thanks for the info. I’m only about 12-15 feet from the Wi-Fi with no walls or any between us to block. I will google my D-link model and make sure it can be set to 5. I’m pretty sure the Mac Air and IPad can be changed to 5 also.

Ya, I'm getting around 20-22 download and almost 6 upload when I'm on wifi on 2.4. But when I go to 5G, I get around 60 download. Oh, this is on Charter also.

Does anyone know why there are several roads up in Moonridge that are covered with a layer of gravel? Is this a prelude to repaving?

I do apologize Marty, there actually was a couple acre fire down in yucaipa a couple hours ago. They diverted some units off the Valley fire and knocked out out quick!

Someone also just asked about it (the smoke) on "Big Bear Stuff for Sale", so at least I know I'm not nuts. Maybe it's from Highland.

No fires nearby, no drift smoke. Can't imagine anyone having their fireplace going but you know....

We're well above average, if we're going with a normal July 1st precip reset (Some people now go by water year on Oct 1st. We should be at .73, and of course we're well ahead of that! Although some areas have seen far less than me. But an excellent start to the monsoon season!
