Re: REDUCED WIFI SPEED

Hello @sachinprasad,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

The wireless connection will always be slower than the wired connection.

What's the exact model version of your router?

What's your speed when you connect your computer directly to the router?

Make sure that there are no other devices that can cause interference such as cordless phones, baby monitors, thich walls, microwave oven,etc.

Try placing the router in a higher place where it will have a good line of sight from the wireless computer.

By the way, what's the OS of the wireless computer? Do you also know the brand of the wireless adapter installed?

You may also try to follow the steps from this link on how to improve it.

 

Let us know what happens.
