R7900P internet really slow but speed test on router is perfect

I replaced my other nighthawk with this router because of the antenna sizes which I like better on this one. For the last few days my internet has been really slow over wi-fi. When I speed tests have been something like 12mbps down and 23mbps down this is when I test from a browser.. when I test from within the router it's 99 down and 122 up. I've tested from both my 5g and regular connection. I'm on firmware V1.3.0.10_1.2.2. If someone can point me in the right direction that would be great so I dont take this back.

What is the speed test with a ethernet wired PC connected to the router? 

What Mfr and model# wifi devices are you using to do the speed test? 

What frequency is the devices connecting too? 2.4 or 5Ghz? 

 

 

Not all wireless devices can speed test to spec to due Mfr limitations with in the devices. Wired speed testing is always preferred due to many factors in wireless that can give inaccurate results.

Thanks for your reply! I haven't tried the wired test yet but doing it though the interface in the router yeilds high results (like they used to be from my computer) I tested from both 2.4 and 5g and they were both low.

Try the newer firmware here:

 

Nighthawk R7000P | AC2300 Smart WiFi Router | NETGEAR Support

 

It can help to factory reset the device after the firmware upgrade.

 

 

Just another user.
