Wifi extender killing net speed

Post by RussellYo » Thu Jun 27, 2019 10:13 am

I have a random issue where my Wifi extender greatly reduces my internet speed basically to nothing... Could it be that the router and the extender are on the same band or something is there any way :shakehead: to tell>?

Download one of the many free android WiFi scanning apps - most will show you all active WiFi nodes and their current channel number :)
