Wifi speed is too slow RBR 850 plus 2 x RBS 850

Hello,

 

i am not super technical so forgive me if i don't give all the correct info.

 

I bought the new Orbi Mesh System AX 6000 (RBK853) including 1 Router RBR 850 and 2 Sattelites RBS 850.

I was able to set it up but the speeds look wrong to me. I have ethernet speed of about 950 mbps down and 975 mbps Upload.

Speed test with my Sony Xperia on 5G is donwload 276 Mbps Upload 539 Mbps (using Speedtest App).. i am about 5 feet from the wireless router. Next to my first sattelite i have 230/350 and the 2nd satelite 140/250.   Any suggestions how i can get my speed higher.

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?

What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected. https://kb.netgear.com/000036466/How-far-should-I-place-my-Orbi-satellite-from-my-Orbi-router

 

Is your wifi device AX supporting or only AC? Most AC wifi devices max out at around 400-500Mpbs on 5Ghz AC. 

Install WiFiSweetSpots app on your device to check the connection rate between the device and RBR or RBS. You may have to temporarily disable the wifi radio on the device if you move near the RBS then back on to ensure it connects to the RBS instead of the RBR. 

 

 


My Setup (Cable 900Mbps/50Mbps)>CAX80>XR450 v2.3.2.106(Router Mode)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, RBK853, R7800, R7960P,
EX7500/EX7700, XR450 and WNHDE111

Regarding speed, check your settings:

Check for channel interference, due to too many neighbors on the same WIFI channel. If so, try another channel.

uncheck 20/40Mhz Coexistence.
Enable WMM
Configure IpV6, I chose Google's IPv6 servers

Orbi RBK53 System/RBR50/RBS50/RBS50. + Orbi Voice RBS40V
RBK753 system/RBR750/RBS750/RBS750 + RBK853 System/RBR850/RBS850/RBS850
There's always a logical answer, if you have all the facts!
