Sudden 50% Speed Drop for Upload & Download


Sudden 50% Speed Drop for Upload & Download

Does it strike anyone else as odd that a great router drops speeds by 50% overnight and now I need to pay $200 for support service to get someone to look at a device that is controlled by their software to work? Hardware is solid, all white lights! 

How can it be legal for them to hold support as a fee when they can activate or deactivate your device with a switch I can't control???? 

Am I crazy or does this resonate with anyone else?Man Frustrated

Welcome to the community, @Bill_m


I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. 

What's the firmware version installed on your router? Do you have the latest firmware?

Have you tried downgrading the firmware?
