I have upgraded from an old 10 Mbps connection to the new 600 Mbps connection, and I am using the connect box.
If I use the ethernet cable, it’s totally fine.
But the wireless functionality is completly erratic, to put it mildly….
1) Sometimes it’s great and I can use the 5 GHz channel achieving speeds of 500 Mbps.
2) Othertimes the 5 GHz channel is constantly detecting radar signals and sending me to a different channel, which disrupts my conference calls in the worst possible timings.
3) Othertimes, both in 2.4 GHz and in 5GHz, the speeds are suddenly lowered to between 5 and 15 Mbps…
4) Othertimes, both in 2.4 GHz and in 5GHz, I simply have short connection losses with no obvious reason behind…
I already tried (in summary) to:
A) Assign different network names to the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels.
B) Use only the 2.4 GHz channel (under different channels) –> this limits the speed a lot of course, and it does not fix the overall stability anyway.
C) Use only the 5 GHz channel (both inside and outside the radar/DFS channels) –> it also does not fix the overall stability.
The problem does not seem to be the signal strengh. I downloaded the application WifiInfoView and the signal seems strong enough (not perfect, but ok…).
It also does not seem to be the actual internet connection. As I said, by cable, it’s fantastic.
Can we do something about this?
