I've recently been set up on Telus Fibre and when using the included Actiontech router my speeds are ~150Mbps bidirectional. When replacing that router with my own, my speeds are ~50Mbps.
Any ideas why that might be the case? I need to use my own router for various reasons, so I really need to get the speed where I need it with my own. My router is an brand new Apple Airport Extreme.
Solved! Go to Solution.
A few things to remember:
Some devices cannot achieve 150 Mbps on Wi-Fi
High speed connections are meant more for multiple users than a single user getting all the bandwidth
Many servers cannot sustain anything near 150 Mbps to users
As @WestCoasterBC states, you can have interference from neighbouring Wi-Fi
The placement of your router can affect the bandwidth it delivers
Distance from the router affects speed to the device, as can walls, microwave ovens, and other electrical appliances
Sometimes one slow device on a network can slow all.
Thanks for the reply. Turns out it was my wifi. It took me hours of trial and error to sort it out but what ended up fixing it was to buy another Apple Airport Extreme router and extend my "ac" network to the rest of the house. It also made a big difference when I turned off the 2Ghz network. Now I have fibre speed wifi around my house! Happy to have it finally sorted.
