Pods kills Gigabit Internet Performance

Pods kills Gigabit Internet Performance

Does any one have an issue with Pods and Gigabit internet performance?  I've been getting 400-600Mbps throughput until I installed the (3) Pods.  The best throughput is ~ 40MBps.  Very disappointing!  Anyone has this issue?  Any fix?

Just an FYI; I passed on the pods and went with Orbi; with my XB6, I get about 300 down in the farthest room from my XB6.

Hello, kchirapo. 

 

How do you have the pods set up in the home? Do you have them in the farthest corners or the nearest corners to the modem? 

 

Thank you for posting to our forums!
