Hi all, just like to ask your opinion. I find that the streaming speed is quite bad when using EVPad, especially at night time (peak period). I am using Maxis homeservices 30mbps

1) Does it make a big different if I pull a direct cable from my router?
2) May I know if these steps are correct to do the above? Modem -> Cable to router -> Router to tvbox. My fibre setup has 2 devices, a modem and a router

depends on which evpad you have. some evpad model has wifi 5Ghz (upto 1300mbps but shorter distance) and some only has 2.4Ghz (upto 600mbps).  the network port could be 10/100 only, and should use at least CAT5e cable..  all these depends on what evpad spec you have and also the router you have too.

You can try it out with cable and then with wifi to check the speed.

As you have just 30mbps line, either one will do, just which one stable to use.

We all connect the cable to the router <> evpad.

Thanks kiefer. Mine is evpad 3s. You were right, I think it only detects my 2.4ghz signal. I've bought a 30m flat cat6.

So you're saying even using LAN port it has limitation and won't be as fast as I thought?

I have 3Max, at first I thought the LAN would be better.. so I started with Cable first, but it lags somehow, so tested the unit using speedtest and it does not go beyond 70mbps.  So i wonder and swap to wifi 5G wifi and it is much better and got to know the lan port on 10/100.  in terms of LAN port, some can support up to 1000mbps already.

What I think as your fiber lan line is 30mbps, using either 2.4ghz wifi or LAN is should be the same.  Just that whether which one better for your unit.

You can enable and disable the wifi on the evpad & plug in-out the LAN cable to test out.

How do I tell what speed is the max ethernet port on my evpad? I don't see that on the box or their official page. My unit should be the EVPAD 3S - MY model

All Evpad products so far come with only 100mbps LAN on the RJ45 port, even for  both 3Max and the latest 3-PLUS, see below links.

@SnoopyDevil, in your case your Maxis home speed is only 30mbps, so connecting via the LAN port should get your near 100mbps and more stable than over WiFi connection.

Thanks.. i am using 5ghz wifi now where the wifi router and evpad is very near, so no problem as of now.

Thanks guys for sharing the info and user experience.

After switching to cable my streaming speed is a lot better. However, MARS VOD is still quite slow. Someone posted in my other thread that EVPAD deliberately limits the speed of their in-house app (MARS VOD, for example) due to CDN costing. Is that true? Is there also a way to unblock the CDN limitation on my device?
