6300 Oscillating Connection

I can't get my wifi to maintain a stable connection. When i restart everything i get a soild 10-17Mbs which is good. However in a few short minutes, the wifi will deteriorate to a unsatisfactory 0-80  Kbs. I have no idea why.

Make sure there isn't a device sucking up all of the bandwidth.  You can check the statistics on the router.

 

Do you have QoS enabled?  If so, disable it, but leave WMM on.

 

Try changing the Wi-Fi channel.  The current one could be congested.  Use the desktop Genie app, inSSIDer (paid), Vistumbler, or Acrylic Wi-Fi to find the least congested channel.

 

Baby monitors, microwave ovens and cordless telephones are notorious for ruining Wi-Fi performance.

 

As a last resort, try a factory reset.  Leave all fancy features turned off until you can restore Wi-Fi performance.
