Slow Wifi - Searched through the posts here, still looking for help
Yesterday I switched my ISP from Comcast to ATT. I have the 45 Mbps service. After service was installed, I did a speed test on the wifi connection and got about 17. I then tested with a direct connection and got the 44 - 45. Later in the evening, I continued to do speed tests and got as low as 1.5 mbps on wifi (with average around 9). Upload speeds were consistent at around 4.5 whether on wifi or plugged in and regardless of what download speed was showing. Location of my laptop versus location of the router did not seem to matter. Whether right next to it or on the other side of the house, speeds were consistently low. Number of devices connected did not make a difference either, I tried with several devices connected and with only one device connected and still would get the same speeds. On Comcast wifi, I had 50 Mbps service, and consistently got 40-42 on wifi. I am considering a range extender to see if that might help, but honestly, I am stumped on this one. Any ideas?
