Down load speeds drop in half using the new ac1900 router

Hello

I tested my PC speeds before installing the router (D=175/U=28) but after installing the router it dropped the download speed in half to 96mbps.  ANy ideas or help/assistance would be appreciated.

One possibility is that the WAN/Internet port on your router is only running at 100 Mbps.  You can confirm this by looking at Show Statistics on the router.  The Ethernet cable may be bad, so try a different one.

I have the AC1900 wifi router with 80Mbps internet service from ATT.  I validated at the Modem ports and from the wifi ports I get 80 Mbps but the WiFi is only ~35Mbps.  The internet provider is saying that the speed is being limited by RF interference--I don't think that is the reason.  Anyone have any ideas why the wifi speed is half of the wired speed?

Hi bobrobert,

 

Are your wireless devices connected on 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz? If the devices are on .24Ghz, please check the link below for explanation.
