Re: does new route rlead to speed drop

Welcome to the forum, as to speed drop depends on what your routers were/are.
It CAN cause a drop but it should recover if the router is the same model, or it maybe that the new one just syncs lower. E.g. my ST716 would sync at  7Mb but the HH2 I replaced it with was 6Mb

Give it a couple of days and see how it does.
