R7000 V1.0.9.42_10.2.44 WiFi Slow

First time poster to the community. I mainly use the R7000 for a wireless AP.  Recently updated the R7000 to V1.0.9.42_10.2.44, performed the hardware reset and re-entered the info manually.  The Lan connection is almost the same speed as my 100Mb internet connection, but when I try to use the 2.4Ghz and 5.0Ghz I am lucky if I can get 5Mb download speed consistley.  I have had the WiFi slow down with previous firmware updates and usually the next update clears it up.  I am open and looking for any suggestions, but it sure seems like there is a problem with this version.  Thanks in Advance

Do you have smart connect enabled? if so try to disable that feature.

Looks like there is a new firmware version.  1.0.9.60_10.2.60

Does it fix your problem?

Yes sir, the new firmware 1.0.9.60_10.2.60 is working much much better with WiFi, the speed is now limited by my ISP service speed.
