Re: 500U Slow Speeds

Without pods on 2.4ghz right beside the gateway what is reasonable to expect?

Re: 500U Slow Speeds

No idea as I have a Pod connected ant it takes over selecting the band and manages the speed. I think the specs for the Pods have a max speed of 200Mbps, but in practice the maximum is likely 100-150Mbp.

Re: 500U Slow Speeds

I would argue when you get speeds over 50 or 75 likely you are connected to 5ghz.  If you use pods and combine your 2.4/5 ghz you would have a hard time knowing how well your 2.4ghz is performing.  I suspect if you get far enough from the router and are can only pick up 2.4 you speeds will drop dramatically

Re: 500U Slow Speeds

I have migrated my internet plan to Ignite 500 Download speed today. The wifi speed on most of devices are among 200-250 but on the PC is only 1-2 ( I didn’t type it wrong, it is only about 1.5 every-time). I have an WIFI adapter not sure if it is the problem.

Thanks for any advices...

Re: 500U Slow Speeds

@Vivi2021 : Try connecting the PC via an Ethernet cable.  You should then get 5-600 mbps down.  Since your other devices are working "properly" on WiFi, it seems to be something at your end.

Re: 500U Slow Speeds

How/where are you doing the speed test?
Depending on the speed test site, the end point you are choosing can make a different.  Between server A and B on the list can make a big difference some times.
Are  you doing this on wired or wireless?  Wireless speeds are not really great to do a speed test from, as any number of things could effect it.

 

Outside of that, its possible that there is something else which has happened, like if there has been a signal drop, etc.

I have a great signal at my home, and my wired desktop can pull over 500 on a regular basis.
