Some tips for improving WiFi performance;
just curious, are you using the 2.4 band or the 5g band? or are yours combined? I tryed to combind them with little luck, separate, i have the 250mbs service and on the 2.4 band i get 71 mbs and using the 5g band i get 293mbs, everything is in the same place, only differnce is the band i am using and the results are on 2 Linux computers 3 feet apart both using the wifi, just a thought
I appreciate your input. But this is a problem that just arose within the last 2-3 months. Nothing different. Gateway is in the central room of a 1 story 1400 sq ft home. All devices using WiFi are within 10-20 ft of gateway. It’s located on a table in my guest room. All by itself. With nothing blocking it. And nothing else interfering with it in this room. The device has been rebooted daily for the 2 days I’ve owned it. And the previous gateway was rebooted once a month and every day towards the end of owning it. Unless I got another bad gateway. I doubt it’s a gateway issue. Speeds are proper at the gateway via hardwire Ethernet. But speeds drop to less than half or even 1/4 of the speeds I pay for. Within 15 ft of gateway.
Try using the 5 GHz WiFi band (if your network client devices support it) instead of the 2.4 band.
I configured my 2.4 and 5g to be separate, i did it in the control panel, i believe 2.4 gives better coverage, but is more congested, 5g is way faster for me, I also played around with different channels and bandwith settings, i pay for 250mbs and get 293 mps on 5g, i am more then happy
