Speeds on 2.4 are slow compared to 5

Hi, 

we are with Virgin media business and on the hitron router. 
the 5ghz network has full speeds of 370mbps but when you connect to the 2.4ghz network the most I have got is 30mbps and I’m standing right next to it? 
Is there anything I can do to get them both at similar speeds? I was the only device connected to the 2.4

Re: Speeds on 2.4 are slow compared to 5

2.4GHz will always be slower than 5GHz, that is how it works.

Speeds are also dependant on the capability of the recipient device.

Have a read of this thread ...

It's normal to get a low speed from the 2.4ghz, this is by design and isn't a fault

I know that you get lower speeds with 2.4 but you surely you should get a 90%decrease in speed?

Also, what speeds should I expect to come out of the Hitrons Ethernet ports? Would that be highest possible as it’s not using the hitrons 2.4 or 5?

@Andyh999 what speed do you think you should get from 2.4ghz?

 

You get full speed from ethernet ports

Ah, that’s good then. 

does it make a difference that we have 5 static ip addresses?

You cant have 5 static IP addresses and WiFi from a Hitron, the wifi is disabled when you have that product

Static IPs have nothing to do with speed, unless there is traffic shaping setup.
