Sudden change in iPhone signal strength

Running my WNDR3700 fine for over a year with no problems connecting to my home wifi network on my wife and mines iphone.

Suddenly we can only connect our iphones to the wifi network if we are standing right next to the router. My ipad, other two laptops, and apple tv have no change in connection and have a strong signal.

I have updated the routers firmware to the latest version, tried channels 1,6, and 11 and still have the problem. I've restored our iphones as well and still nothing.

Is there anything else I can try to remedy this problem?

No, it's the other way around, everything connects fine to the network except our two iphones. They only connect if you physically standing right next to the router.

Yes, the phones connect to other wifi hotspots with no issues.

Re: Sudden change in iPhone signal strength

maybe your appleTV and laptops connect via 5GHz?
then your 2.4GHz radio is broken ...

do you have unique SSID name instead of default SSID names? it does sounds like 2.4Ghz side could be faulty unless other devices are connected on 2.4Ghz as well

you should able to know but looking at SSID name you choose on apple tv and other products

make sure BOTH band of SSID is different so you know which one you are connecting
