Nighthawk(R) X4S R7800 slow wifi download speeds


Nighthawk(R) X4S R7800 slow wifi download speeds

As the subject says the download speeds have not been good as of late over wifi.  I'm not sure how long it's been this way.  I've tried going through each version of the firmware but the results are the same about, roughly 10 mbps.  The  upload speeds is consistant, around 12mbps over both wired and wireless.  Typical speeds over wifi have been 150 mbps.  It's on channels that aren't really occupied by anyone, the 5ghz is by itself on 157.  Both 2.4 and 5 get about the same download at around 10 mbps.

I've tested the speeds over two pcs and my phone, and I've also reset it to factory settings and nothing has impoved.  I'm starting to think it's hardware related  aat  this point, but not sure how the upload could be where it's suppose to and the download not even close.



Appreciate the help in advance
