Slow download speed on WiFi

Pretty much what the title says. When I'm wired into the router I'm getting 100x100mbps. On WiFi I'm getting between 50-75x100mbps. Ive done a full factory reset, upgraded to the latest firmware, etc. I've scoured through all the other posts on this problem and it seems to be fairly common, however everyone elses solutions don't seem to be working for me. Wondering if anyone here has any other ideas. This issue has me considering a different router. Not sure what else to do.

Re: Slow download speed on WiFi

Hi phatrhombus,

 

Is the speed on 2.4Ghz or 5GHz connection?

How many devices are affected? What are those devices?

Both 2.4ghz and 5ghz, the frequency does not seem to matter. Two phones, and a Chromecast are connected at any given time and occasionally a laptop.
