In this last week both my partner and I have found our WiFi to be quite slow on our phones (both Android), but useable. However, after receiving messages to say that backups weren't completing overnight, I checked the speed using speedtest.net. Both are getting decent download speeds (Around 40mbps). But we are both getting zero upload speed.
We've got a few different devices around the house, so I switched them on and tested them all out. The laptop works fine, suggests an upload of around 10mbps. The same of our iPad, works fine with good upload. However, our Amazon Fire tablet running on Android has no upload speed.
Our friends came over for dinner a couple of nights ago, one has an iPhone the other 2 were Androids. Again, the iPhone worked fine and had good upload speeds but the Androids have nothing. On all devices with 3g/4g sim cards in, we can test the 4G network and it works fine. I also use WiFi at work with my phone and it's OK so I know the issue is with my home network. I'm just not sure where.
I've checked the router, connections, cabling, nothing has changed. We've only got the one master socket and the router is connected straight to that so there's nothing else to interfere from that side of things. I've checked router setup, and have run the tests on the router home page and it shows as everything being fine. Which I almost expected considering that it seems some devices are working fine.
I can't work out why, the Android devices are struggling. It's been going on for about a week now and it's doing my head in, so I'm hoping someone out there might have an idea. I've checked a few forums and followed them through to resolution but generally they're all where all devices aren't working. I've not seen any where only some devices don't work.
That is a bit of a strange one. Have you tried splitting out the Wifi SSIDs?
That way you can try connecting the Andriod to either the 2.4 or the 5 GHz to see if either on might work better.
Give that a try and let me know how you get on?
Has the problem been solved? Please can you tell me how because I have the same problem.
You are posting on a three year old thread and the OP has not been back to the forum since the last post.
You would be better to start a new post and give as much details about your problem along with what if anything you have tried to resolve it.
Also include what make and model of device the problem is on and what operating system it is using.
