Decreased internet speed of ORBI RBK50



Upgraded to Charter Spectrum Ultra100 intenet service.  Have an ORBI system (router + 1 satellite) RBK50 + RBS50.  Since upgrading the internet service, when I get 130+ near the main router, my speed test near the satellite is near 30-50, sometimes 90 or as low as15-20.  I have updated firmware on router and satellie and have tested signal with Charter.   It's been much worse since upgrading.  It was better on regular high speed internet.  I was getting 55-66 everywhere with no degradation of speed.  Can the ORBI handle the extra speed?  Do I need another satellite?  Are there setting I should change to better accomodate the additional speed?

Re: Decreased internet speed of ORBI RBK50

Have been reading...Seems on 2GHZ up to 192 mbps and up to 866 mbps on 5 GHZ.  Then why is my internet speed degrading by 33-66% when in range of the satellite.  Makes me think there is something inefficient between the router and satellite...some setting???

Hello Sarahshorin


In the wireless settings have you tried to change the wireless channel on the 5ghz and 2.4ghz network?
