Slow 2.4Ghz Wireless.

I have a TP-W9980 router, updated to latest fw.

 

I've noticed my wireless speed has dropped massively from 65Mbits to 8!

Not sure if my router is suddenly dodgy - no changes in other equipment.

 

However I checked my router config to find:

Firmware Version:0.6.0 1.13 v0021.0 Build 160125 Rel.52064n

Hardware Version:TD-W9980 v1 00000001

System Up Time:0 day(s) 00:27:33

 

DSL

Line Status:Connected

DSL Modulation Type:VDSL2

Annex Type:Annex A/B/L/M

 

  Upstream Downstream
Current Rate (Kbps) 19999 66997
Max Rate (Kbps) 32594 82539
SNR Margin (dB) 13.5 10.3
Line Attenuation (dB) 15.8 13.1
Errors (Pkts) 0 344344

 

Help, as i'm flummoxed, thanks!

There is horrendous crackling and popping from time to time on the phone too. Has been occurring for years but multiple BT engineers unable to find a fault.

Re: Slow 2.4Ghz Wireless.

Have you tested your speed using a wired connection?  Given that you've got a noisy line and lots of errors it would seem likely that this is nothing to do with wireless?

Oops - Apologies!!

 

Suggest you try changing the router wifi channel then - Try channels 1, 6 and 11 to see if there are any improvments.
