EX8000 Ping and Packet Loss
I have an R7000 that works great with exception to a weak signal in my basement. I have tried other routers, but none have come even close to the range of the R7000, so I gave the EX8000 a try to extend my signal. I hooked it up and I was getting full signal strength in basement, it was fantastic. Unfortunately as the day went on, I started to realize that the internet seemed very slow and would even drop sometimes. I did a ping tested and noticed that the results were mostly >400ms and would even have 100% packet loss. As soon as I turned off the extender, I was back to <=4ms. I’m no networking expert, do I have any options I can try here with the extender? When it did connect, it was full signal, but that was IF it connected. As a tangent, if you have experience with a better, longer range router too, I’d be interested to hear.
