XR700 wifi goes from 500mb to 2mb when upstairs

Recommended Posts

Hey guys so i have a xr700 wifi speed is amazing downstairs but as soon as i go upstairs it goes from 800mb to around 5-10mb i am drectly above the router so it is not a big distance maybe 10 meters max from the router to my phone if i was to cut a line in the floor.

Some settings i have are:

enabled smart mode to bond 2.4ghz and 5ghz 
enabled implicit beamforming
enabled mu-mimo 
CTS/RTS 2347
disabled ipv6
preamble mode: auto
transmit power 100% 

if anyone has any idea or settings that could be changed let me know as iv never had an issue like this before with any other routers.

Welcome to the forum!

Sounds to me like a 5GHz related problem. While 5GHz has faster maximum throughput than 2.4GHz, it drops off far more quickly when moving away from the router.

As a test, I would suggest separating the 2.4 and 5GHz bands (disable smart connect), giving them separate SSIDs, and seeing if you get better results on the 2.4GHz network.

Agreed, that is a lot slower than i'd expect. And this is only happening on wifi devices? LAN devices aren't slowing down at all?

Use a WiFi analyzer to find the least congested channel in your area and then change to that for 2.4GHz. Also have a look online for the optimal antennae placement as this can affect it more than you may think.
