Why is my WiFi speed so slow?

I can’t figure out why my WiFi speed is so slow on my iPhone XS Max. Router is less than a month old and is running the latest firmware. Speed test on the router is over 100 mb/s. But only getting around 30 on my iPhone. I’m about 20 feet from the router.

Re: Why is my WiFi speed so slow?

What Firmware is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem 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 is recommended in between them to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

 

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)>CAX80 v2.1.2.1(LAG Disabled)>RBK853 v4.6.3.16
Additional NG HW: C7800/CM1100/CM1200CM2000, Orbi CBK40, CBR750, RBK50(v22), SXR30(v110), R7000(v34), R7800(v84), R7960P(v82), EX7500/EX7700, XR450(v120) and WNHDE111

V2.3.1.60
House is about 1500 sq feet.
About 25 feet.

I changed your suggested setting and that seems to have fixed it. Thanks for your help.

Re: Why is my WiFi speed so slow?

Be sure to keep the satellite at around 30 feet. 25 maybe a bit too close. 

 

Glad the changes worked. Enjoy. Smiley Wink
