   To _what_?  Have you any evidence that your bottleneck is the router,
and not your (unspecified) client device?  Which radio band are you
using, 2.4GHz or 5GHz?  Does some other device do better?  Does this
(unspecified) device do better with some other router?  Does changing
radio channels help?

> [...] Upload 9Mbps (somehow upload speed still good)

   If the wireless interface on your client device couldn't go faster
than, say, 20Mb/s, then that limit wouldn't affect your upload speed
(which your ISP caps at 10Mb/s?), but it would affect your download
speed (with its higher ISP speed limit).

   Blame assignment is job one.  Determine where the problem lies, and
_then_ start worrying about how to solve it.

Re: Correct Fast Ethernet Cable but Slow Wifi Speed

I use both band but the 5GHz is better. It fave me 20 down and 9 up. The 2.4 Give me 3 down and 9 up.

I did change the channel but the problem is still. 

 

What should I do?
