2nd speed test faster on satellites

I've just endured a terrible installation experience with the Orbi RBK50, RBS50, RBW30.  After wasting a few hours repeating the same or similar steps the system has been working now for 8 hours!  Yay!


In doing some speed tests using I've noticed that the first speed test is slower and more variable than one ran right after.  Prior to Orbi, my speed tests were monotonously similar, now on the system that is out on the satellite I might see 65mb/s on the first test then 93mb/s on the second.


My question is: do the Orbi's doi "something" like adjusting the signal or whatnot that would effect the speed between two tests ran right after one another?



Model: Orbi High-Performance AC3000 Tri-Band WiFi System (RBK50)

Re: 2nd speed test faster on satellites

Are you doing the speed tests on different satellites or all connected to the same one?

It's the same satellite.  The system I'm running the test on is a fixed location iMac.
