WIFI Speeds

Anyone have a Moto X gen2?

 

I have a brand new one setting it up today and messing about with it.

 

WIFI is same speed as VM Mobile Network when showing G3+/H Link Speed and  on Speedtest.net (tried a few different servers), I see about 28Mb/s / 12Mb/s max.

 

VM 152Mb/s service with a SuperHub2 (not AC) set to 5GHZ only with GreenField enabled, WPA2 Auto Performance Mode, and signal strength is saying excellent in the phones GUI and claims Link Speed is 144Mb/s.

 

Phone is also only set to use 5GHZ.

Re: WIFI Speeds

Found little trick using Googling.

 

Set SH2 to modem mode, which reboots it, then reboot once again in modem mode, then enable back to router mode and reboot again.

 

Now getting 100+Mb/s / 12Mb/s on same 145Mb/s link.

Re: WIFI Speeds

Is that really a Tip? Sounds to me more like some sort of Software bug? If its a workaround - fine, but people shouldn't be expected to perform such actions?


TiVo, 150mb BB, Telco, Mobile.. .got em all Smiley Happy

Re: WIFI Speeds

Hi kevAmiga,

 

Depending on the model of phone, we'd want to make sure it's running at the best speeds possible. If this worked, we want to make sure anyone else gives it a try if they're having issues.

 

Thanks,

Mat
