MTS Help (Wi-Fi Speed)
I have had a new MTS internet connection installed recently, lighting 50 with a PACE router. I am getting a great speed with ethernet but rubbish on wireless. Things done so far
1. Changed router.
2. Changed the place. Much more open.
3. Contacted the tech support - no help.
4. Tested sitting right next to it, only one device running- no good.
The fall is from 50 mbps on wire to 15-18 mbps on wifi.
I only use apple products.
PS- if no solution which third party router is recommended. money no object.
i have the exact same setup, and the same problem. in my case it is an abundance of wifi in my area and I can't seem to find a channel that is clear. I would be interested in a solution to this as well if anyone has one
There's a chance that the issue may still persist even if you buy your own router. Also, it will be up to you to configure your own router. If you call tech support, they'll say they don't support non-MTS equipment. Oh, and your own router won't replace the Pace, which is a modem and router in one. It'll have to be plugged into the Pace (a router wired to another router will encounter a "double NAT" unless the secondary one is disabled from doing any routing)
Dual-band routers are supposedly the way to go, as the newer 5 GHz frequency isn't as crowded as the 2.4 GHz. Apparently ASUS routers are good. I think model RT-N66U is one of the most popular models. There's also the RT-AC66U, but AC wifi might not even be standardized yet, and I don't think many devices even do AC yet.
