BGW320-505 using 160 mhz has issues
I have 1 Gb fiber internet through BGW320-505 (and receiving on wifi 6 pci card one room over) and have been trying to be able to utilize the full Gb speeds over Wifi but am having issues that I believe stem from the BGW320-505. I'll state what's happening below:
> When transmitting the 5 ghz signal with 80 mhz bandwidth, I'm usually speedtesting 500-600 mbps (which was close to what I was getting when paying for only 500Mb internet)
> When changing bandwidth to 160 mhz, I have been able to reach the full potential: https://i.ibb.co/cgfp5fC/Speed.jpg
> HOWEVER, the 160 mhz setting is inconsistent and causes many problems, with the speed fluctuating greatly and constantly. Here's a screenshot of the exact same setup but taken 1 minute later: https://i.ibb.co/r4S26wn/speed-slow.jpg
> What is causing this? I need a fix to utilize the full speed I'm paying for. Hoping for help!
> One thing I notice is the channel that gets auto-selected. When the channel is 161, the slow speed and constant changes occur. However, as seen in the first screen shot, when the channel is 112, I get full speed. However as far as I can tell ATT will not let you select your own channel, so I can't test this theory. But it's possible the 161 channel is bad, but the router keeps choosing it.
Thanks for any help!
