Hi everyone, I could use a little help in trying figure out why my wifi is so slow. I have a large 4 story L shaped house and just installed a Asus RT-N66U this last weekend. This is on the first floor since that is where the cable comes in and my computer is there. In testing the set up I was getting 27Mbps off of my laptop on floor 3 which directly above the router. Since then I installed a recently built home built computer on floor 4 connected via a Netgear powerline model XWNB5201. This unit has a access point and wifi extender. We also upgraded to 50Mbps. Tested the WiFi speed on my laptop last night and getting 56Mbps on the main computer but only 7Mbps on the laptop. Even 5 feet away from the router I'm getting slow Wifi. Also, I noticed the laptop defaulting to the Netgear extender even on the first floor. I need some help in trying to figure out why my WiFi is so slow. My networking knowledge is probably a 2 out of a 5 so keep that in mind.
