    Netgear XR500 wifi issues

    Still doesn't explain why my router is putting out slower wifi speeds with 1 gig fiber than it did with 450mbps charter lol. The same exact laptop was getting 200 mbps faster like 90 minutes before lol.. As I said before, the speeds are slower on every device I tested. My laptop, my note 8, and...

    Netgear XR500 wifi issues

    It was just a picture I took with my phone and tried to upload it via "attach files" right here on the forum. The test was done over wifi on my laptop. With no other devices on the wifi and no ethernet cables plugged into the XR500 router. So I have no idea why my XR500 router is putting out a...

    Netgear XR500 wifi issues

    Says I'm getting 433 mbps recieve/transmitbut speedtest.net and other tests are below 200 mbps for download and around 240 for upload. It definitely feels slow. Sorry I didn't see this before. I tried uploading a picture and it says the file is too large for the server to process? Even though I...

    I'm just confused why I'm getting slower speeds over 5GHz with 1 gig fiber than I did with 450mbps charter internet.

    Netgear XR500 wifi issues

    According to my phone and router homepage that's 5GHz. I tried disabling "smart connect". And disabling 20/40 mhz coexist or whatever it was. Still getting low speeds. Managed to get 250- 350 DL for a bit. But that's a far cry from what it should be getting on 5GHz.

    Netgear XR500 wifi issues

    Sorry if I came across rude. That wasn't my intention. I just started to question whether or not I posted in the correct place. Yes exact same router about 90 mintues apart from time of disconnect (charter) and reconnect (fiber). I used a wifi analyzer and changed channels. It only helped...
