For guidance on internet speed testing, we have a dedicated article here.
Accessing your settings page
Open your web browser and type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Open your web browser and type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. The username and password are both set to ‘admin’ by default (if you’ve changed this, then please enter your specified details).
Changing your settings
Navigate to ‘System Log’ within the ‘Advanced Settings’ menu on the left-hand side.
Select ‘DSL Log’ from the top menu bar – it’s the second option from the right.
In the ‘Line Stats’ table, look for ‘Data Rate’. This is the downstream/upstream rate at which the router is connected. This means it’s more reliable than doing a speed test through a website as it removes all interference and deterioration caused by your cables, WiFi signal, and computer.
The figures shown are in Kbps, but you can convert them to Mbps easily using Google.
