Re: Slow wifi

Then it’s a limitation of the Wifi card in your PC

Re: Slow wifi

If your phone is getting 100Mbps then the line/connection itself is fine.

It could be that the pc is now connecting it the 2.4Ghz band rather than the 5Ghz band.

Re: Slow wifi

Have you split/renamed the 2.4ghz and 5Ghz bands to differentiate between them and connect to them independently?

If not the device will choose which band to connect to by itself.

Re: Slow wifi

When connecting to a wifi each wifi at the end of the name as a letter 2 or 5 I stick to the 5 one so i dont think it will connect to the 2.4 when that internet should be forced 5ghz

Re: Slow wifi

What distance is it from the hub?

5Ghz is faster but speed reduces greatly over distance.
