Hi all iam running 60 meg fibre optic broad band. I have a wired connection to my wii u when i play ghost and go to options and check my connection speed it comes up as 2850kbps is there any way i can get this higher or am i stuck with this my nat is open i have a static ip on the router
The number you're seeing is the UPLOAD speed.
Do a speedtest to see what your upload is - it's probably fairly close to that number.
Then 2850kbs is about right. The numbers are never the same and the system (from what I've seen) always reports a little lower than speedtest.net.
On a 50 Mbps download/5 Mbps upload connection I got about 14-16 Mbps download/2.5-4.0 Mbps upload speed on speed test using the HTML5 web browser on the Wii U at testmy(dot)net & another test site. I tried connecting the Wii U using an ethernet to USB adaptor as well as a 2 kinds of Netgear Wifi adaptor (WNCE2001 & WNCE3001) with mixed results. At 5 Ghz network it's slower. The only real benefit of wired connection is free of signal interference. The built-in WiFi on the Wii U will do just fine. The HTML browser speed test I think is very unreliable.
