|I recently ( a week ago) acquired a 40 mpbs connection. The connection is provided via a LAN cable, without any modem.|
However, I've faced this issue since the beginning: I get 40 mbps of speed through LAN cable (as tested on speedtest.net) but the moment i connect via wifi, the speed drops to 20 mbps, and fluctuates wildly, often dropping to 1-2 mbps, so i can hardly browse. I figured that the issue might be with the NETGEAR N150 router, and I called network support specialist, who tried to configure the router, but to no avail. I then contacted NETGEAR CC, who were similarly unable to help, despite a lot of modifications to the router configuration.
I then ordered a new router (TP-LINK N300), but (you guessed it) same problem. The ISP is saying that it is not an issue with their end, as a direct connection gives the promised speed.
I tried configuring the router(s) in a hundred different ways (Channel 1, 6, 11, Auto; MTU size 1454, 1492, 1500; Dynamic IP, PPPoE; WEP, WPS) but nothing works. I placed it all over the house, but everywhere the issue is the same.
