Solved slow data speed for Android on Zyxel WRE2205 extender

October 4, 2015 at 09:14:45
Specs: Android 4.2.2
With my Zyxel WRE2205 extender I have a very fine and strong signal of about -60db, but my samsung galaxy 3 mini is performing very slowly with a data speed measured almost to zero level. Have the same problem with my Samsung Tab s tablet.

When disconnecting the WRE2205 both devices connect fine to the Cisco EPC3925 router to the router - with a lower signal strenth but with full data speed.

What can interfere to slow down the data speed of the extender ?

I'm afraid that's one of the downsides of using a signal booster, signal range goes up but speed goes down. The severity of the slowdown depends on the make/model of extender you are using.

Zyxel? not a well-known name in the UK, certainly not one of the most popular brands, not a brand I would buy.

I use a Netgear extender (just a direct plug-in one, looks like a large adapter with two antennas sticking out) and it's effect on speed is very acceptable. It's reliable too.
