Re: Users on FTTP 900, whats the fastest wifi speeds and what router are you using?

Thanks for reply

 

yeah its exactly that 80MHz 5GHz

 

and I agree. maybe should get around half,  surely that should still be around 500Mbps,

150-200 just seems super low,

Re: Users on FTTP 900, whats the fastest wifi speeds and what router are you using?

Agree that does seem low.

Even aiming for half might be a bit optimistic though.

Anecdotal, but here's what I see sat at my kitchen table about 4 metres from my Wi-Fi 6 hub in a clear line of sight (both devices are sat next to each other): -

Wi-Fi 6 capable Pixel 7 Pro - ~600mbps (half of link speed)
Wi-FI 5 Pixelbook Go - ~360mbps (less than half of link speed)

My Pixelbook admittedly has a little less Wi-Fi grunt compared to your Macbook, however this hopefully helps illustrate that things aren't black and white when it comes to Wi-Fi. There's a whole bunch of stuff to consider outside of the hub itself e.g. capability of the connecting devices, number of devices sharing the Wi-Fi, radio environment/noise etc.

I use channel 100 ASUS AX88u and basically get 800-900 speed around full house. Must be hardly any congestion. Very solid performance iPhone iPad and Mac.

Re: Users on FTTP 900, whats the fastest wifi speeds and what router are you using?

Thats amazing speeds,

 

Just out of curiosity,     whats the models of your devices,

 

Im trying :

Macbook pro 16,  (says supports wifi AC/1300Mbps)

Iphone pro 13, 

Apple 4k Tv    ( but wired can do 930/110 solid)

These devices  up and down,  150Mbps-250Mbps (wifi)

 

Now tempted to get Asus. Router,   not waste any more time on netgear,

Hi,

 

iPad Pro 2020. MacBook M1 Max 16 inch and iPhone 13 Pro 

 

I do recommend the ASUS AX88u router. Has 8 ports and solid Wi-Fi 6 performance.

Re: Users on FTTP 900, whats the fastest wifi speeds and what router are you using?

Fingers crossed,  just ordered the ASUS AX88u. get it tomorrow,

 

Its a weird situation,   I guess around 3 weeks ago,     I was on 300Mbps profile for the last  3 years,

running rock solid all devices around  310Mbps totally stable. wifi and wired,      Then the only. change made

was changing my profile to 900Mbps,   since then all wifi devices are not stable, wifi  150Mbps-250Mbps. and   wired Laptops. 450-470Mbps,    3 openreach engineers see the issue and say they totally have no idea,  and they close case

off and say need to go back to my provider, which is BT,

Re: Users on FTTP 900, whats the fastest wifi speeds and what router are you using?

New router arrived today,  from amazon 🙂

 

Tried so far:

BH2

Netgear RAX200.  

 

now

Asus. AX88U Pro.    so far not a real improvement,  trying on several devices,   no consistancy at all

up and down like a yoyo,  more so down,  more consistant 200-300Mbps all devices,   the odd

test comes in a 500Mbps   then every other test back arounf 200-300Mbps

 

On Macbook Pro AC/1300 ,   ( not wifi 6)

Speedtest @ 2.4.Ghz 26Mbps down

https://www.speedtest.net/result/14695554093

Speedtest @ 5Ghz.  210Mbps down.

https://www.speedtest.net/result/14695627054

 

Iphone 13 Pro max. (not wifi 6). on 5Ghz

average 200-300Mbps,   

 

Samsung s20 Ultra. ( Wifi 6)

200-300Mbps

 

Samsung s23 Ultra (wifi 6)

200-300Mbps

 

screen shot from router page,    ive tried changing settings,   when changes

Very Strange

Re: Users on FTTP 900, whats the fastest wifi speeds and what router are you using?

FTTP 900, Asus GT-AX6000

Direct speedtest on router  935/105 - with 40ish devices this is the only means to perform a clean speed test.

Poco F3 820/100

Most other 5GHz devices (inc WiFi6) 300-350/60-90

2.4GHz WiFi 4 devices 30-50/20-40


I only learn by making mistakes and owning up to them - boy do I learn a lot!
