2.4g slow speed

After following some advice I tried every channel and none gave me more than 10mbs some gave a lot less.

I am sitting sitting directly in front of the router.

I downloaded and ran inSSIDer and there are 3 other wifis in my area but mine is the strongest and none are overlapping.

I still get 70mbs wired and 50mbs on 5g but my laptop only sees 2.4g

Any help appreciated

Re: 2.4g slow speed

Get a USB 5ghz dongle or wire up.

2.4g is just terrible and you are very unlikely to ever get speed on it.

Re: 2.4g slow speed

Thanks for the reply but never had this problem before am sure I used to get at least 30mbs from the 2.4g

Re: 2.4g slow speed

Wireless scanners like InSSIDer cannot pick up wireless interference from domestic appliances in range of your hub like A\V Streaming devices, Baby Monitors, Chordless phones, Microwave ovens, Plasma TVs, Security systems etc.

It might be worth checking for such devices nearby bearing in mind they do not have to be in your home to interfere, a Toyota Prius parked outside can interfere for example.
