M1 Fibre Broadband 100MBps tuning Guide
Bluetooth 15 Mar 2011

Fibre broadband is not new. A lot of users already have it at home but aren’t able to get the speeds they want. IT Show 2011 is just over and I bet most people who have gotten hold of the Huawei residential gateway are eager to know how you could maximise the network speed of your system.

For M1, if you have got their 100Mbps Fibre broadband which delivers up to 100Mbps down and 50Mbps up, you would have to fine tune the Residential Gateway from Huawei. The Huawei RG256 is rented to the subscriber and comes with a fixed voice line. That is probably the reason why many people got it but are also complaining about bad speeds.

What we are going do in this guide is to make things simple. We look at the FIX Ethernet direct connection from the port on the RG256 to our netbook. We will see the configurations required on both.

In the next page, we detail the configuration screens of the RG256 that is required for a better speed.
