So ISP speed measured from my Orbi is 500Mbps(Ethernet-to-ISP Router) , when I check speed via Wifi connected to the Satellite I get 150-200Mbps. I am losing about 300 Mbps. This is frustrating me because I am paying for that speed.

There is only 1 brick wall between router and satellite, then another brick wall between satellite and me. So router is in room 1, Satellite in room 2, and I am in room 3.

Is this to be expected? For Sure I have seen speeds hit 400+Mbps before with same setup. I didn't reboot Orbi in couple of days. What are other people's experiences?

RBK 50, Voxel Firmware latest.
