WiFi slower than my old TP Link router
« on: April 11, 2019, 06:26:04 AM »

Hi folks,

I received my 882 today, thought I'd upgrade my TP Link Archer c9. However it seems it's a downgrade as my wifi download speeds are slower then on my TP link router.

I have a 350mb connection which gets around 380 on wired. On my old TP link with through wifi (using iphone xr and 6th gen ipad) I would get around 350mb download speeds, but with the D link I'm only seeing a max of 200mb on either device, normally a lot lower.

It's in exactly the same position and I'm the same distance away.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I've done all the firmware updates and carried out a full reset and tried smart wifi and manual set up (both the same speed)

It looks like the old adage of if it aint broke, don't fix it.

Wireless Configurations
Links>Wireless Installation Considerations and Managing Signal Congestion and Good Neighbour Policy
  • Ensure the default (dlink) SSID name is changed. Ensure that different SSID names are used between each WiFi 2.4/5Ghz radios. Can be anything and not something that's already in use by any neighbouring WiFi routers. Under Setup/Wireless/Manual.
  • What wireless modes are you using?
  • 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz routers: Try single mode G or N or mixed G and N on 2.4Ghz and single mode N or AC on 5Ghz?
  • Try setting a manual Channel to a open or unused channel. 1, 6 or 11. 11 for single mode N if the channel is clear. 13 for EU regions. Try channel 48 or 149 on 5Ghz.
  • What security mode are you using? Preferred security is WPA-Personal.
  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by that maybe causing interferences?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use a WiFi Scanner to find out. How many?
