As the title says, When I use 5G on my PC I get slow download speeds.
Now that is with my wifi card - My wifi card supports 5G.
I have tried with Ethernet cable (Home plugs) and I still only peaked 25mbp/s with 5G ( I was downloading a game with ethernet and I was at around 800kbp/s and by the off-chance it would spike to 2mbp/s )
Just to be clear off what steps I've tried:
- Resetting router
- Factory resetting router
- Changed settings on my wifi dongle and default settings
- Changed 5G channels from auto and standalone values
I don't mind but I have a 100mbp/s package, I did a speedtest with my iPad ( 5G ) using the same website and the results are below:
iPad was tested with same distance as my PC, even then I got poor results using Ethernet so.
This has only started to happen since around 10th December. I used to download games at around 10-12mbp/s.
I changed my wifi card so it only uses 2G and my download is accurate ( 50mbp/s for wireless )
I don't have time to mess around doing different ways of testing, I did it last time with my old thread due to a ping issue.. In the end it just fixed itself even though apparently no one was working in our area despite others experiencing the same issue.
