Netgear R7000 speed dropped

I was having some internet issues today which resulted in resetting of the comcast router as well as the never router that is connected. In June I used to get 173mbps with 6 up speed with the netgear wifi but the download speed for some reason has dropped significantly to an avg of 25mbps with 6 up speed. Does anyone know whats caused this? The original Wi-Fi with xfinity seems to be working fine because the speed is at around 160mpbs when I'm in the room, I'm using the netgear router to reach rooms that are further away

Did you reboot the whole network ion the correct order.

 

Be sure to restart your network in this sequence:

 

  • Turn off and unplug the modem.
  • Turn off the modem router and computers.
  • Plug in the modem and turn it on. Wait 2 minutes.
  • Turn on the modem router and wait 2 minutes.
  • Turn on the computers.

What is this Comcast router. If it really is a router, and not just a modem, then you may need to reconfigure it to be in modem only mode, or put the R7000 into access point mode.

 

Maybe your resets wiped out those earlier settings.
