RBK50 speeds issues and latest SW

 

Hi there

So, I have upgraded to Orbiz last FW.

I dropped the issue of speeds, because every 4-5 speed test , speeds are still drops to 600.

Now, upload for some reasom for 2 months is limities 60M/110M~, wirelessly.

4 devices which used to get arround  120-130 in 5Ghz.

 

Wired is ok though

I have started from factory default after upgrade.

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

Re: RBK50 speeds issues and latest SW

Let us know if you see any differences after the reset and setup from scratch.

 

What wireless devices are you using to wireless speed test? 

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?
What WPA security modes are you using?

Try enabling Beamforming and MIMO. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings

 

Try disabling the following and see:
Daisy Chain, Fast Roaming, IPv6 and Set 20/40Mhz Coexistence to 40Mhz only. Save settings and reboot the router and satellite(s).

My Setup (Cable 1Gbps/50Mbps)>CM1200 v2.02.03(LAG Disabled)>RBK853 v3.2.18.1/RBK50 v2.7.2.104(WW)
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CAX80/CM2000, Orbi CBK40, R7800, R7960P, EX7500/EX7700, XR450(v2.3.2.120) and WNHDE111

How does one manually set the channel for each of 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz? One of my devices is apparently challenged to connect to 5Ghz routers. I am thinking to set the 2.4Ghz channel to something more common such as Channel 11, in the hopes the device will pick up on that band.  PS the device is a Jandy Aqualink (connects our swimming pool through Internet, allowing us to control such remotely from our iPhone).

On the Basic Tab/Wireless Settings. 

You can temporarily disable the 5Ghz SSID from being seen to test under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings. Uncheck the Enable 5Ghz SSID check box.

Hey you said you updated the firmware but never said what version you were on.  Can you please check both your router and your satellites and tell us the version numbers you see there?

2.4Ghz- Was auto- changed due to your advise to 11 Ch.

5Ghz- Configured to 36 Ch because it is "closest" on the scale. The 5Ghz analyzer seems no other nets in the range.

WPA2 PSK (AES)

 

Beamorming and MIMO were disabled, I thought they lowered my speeds, just enabled them again.

During the writing of this comment I enabled, and speed test and they did indeed lowered the speeds.  

 

So what is checked here is only

Daisy Chain (allows faster perfomenance)- got 1 Sat only.

and Fast Roaming.

Where/ How do I set the 20/40Mhz to 40Mhz only, it just let you check the box or not, without option to select anything else.

 

IPV6 and Traffic Meter are diabled by default.

 

Let me know if I corget anything here

Try with out MIMO. Beamforming shouldn't effect speeds.
