the reason why I think this Videotron router that is bad is because I have been with Bell fibe on 300mbps without any drop in the past, even outside the house! The router was installed at the same place, which is in the basement and the room with the highest signal drop is on the opposite corner on the main floor.
I am even tempted to install my old Apple airport extreme and using my old airport express upstairs to extend the signal
on a side note, when I stand at 20 feet from the router, I get wireless speed of 450mbps using speedtest.net
thanks for the help
