Great speed... for one day

I installed my Nighthawk router, and the speeds were great. I have 30Meg coming into the house, and I was getting 25-26Meg in my upstairs office. The signal is about 75' away, around two walls and up the stairs. I was impressed. But, after about one day the speed dropped to 2megs.

I had experienced this already. I bought a Netgear (6350?) router, and had this exact problem. I returned it because I was only getting around 15Meg speeds with it to begin with, and I have that with my powerline setup already. The salesman said the Nighthawk had better range, and assured me I would see 25Meg speeds. He was correct. But the Nighthawk dropped to 2Meg speed after a day, just like the 6350 did.

Any suggestions as to what may be causing this speed drop? I may as well take the Nighthawk back and go back to my old Cisco router.

Considerably R7000 has better performance in general but 75ft are good distance away and even beam forming that helps the signal I would say you are making difficult is possibility

Broadband speed of 30Mps will be easily attain fine with any of Rxxx family since that is WAN speed .


I would suggest to place additional AP in the area you need to cover.

That does not explain why both routers gave me good speeds, but then after a day the speeds dropped drastically.
