Comcast Extreme 105 (130/25)
I have a RT-AC66U I’ve been using for about a year and a
half. Over the past 6 months my WiFi speed on both bands has been throttled to
30/25 on 2.4m and 40/25 on 5g. In the past I was getting the same WiFi speeds as
the wired speeds. I’ve tried a master reset, changing the channels using WiFi analyzer,
only having one device on the network at a time, upgrading the firmware and nothing
seems to change.
My thought was the router was on its way out so I picked up
a RT-AC68U. Guess what, same issue. Can’t seem to get faster than 40/25 even
with only one WiFi device connected. Wired speed is on point at 130/25 all day
I contacted Comcast to get some help and after they remoted
into my network, they stated my modem was bad which is causing my poor WiFi
speeds. This seems odd to me since my wired speeds from the modem are correct. I’m
willing to buy a new modem, but after just dropping $150 on the 68U, I’m bit hesitant
to spend another $120 on a modem.
Thanks in advance!
