Dir-890l Wireless Speed
« on: August 02, 2019, 08:19:33 AM »

Recently, the wifi output speed has dropped significantly on this unit.  The hard wired speed from the unit tests at 300mbps.  However, the wireless connection speed never gets above 50mbps whereas before it would test as high as 180mbps.  I have reset the device to no avail.  What am I missing or is it time to get a new router?  Thoughts?

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What wireless devices do you have?
Happens with all wifi devices?
Has any software or FW updates been recently performed on any of these devices?

Is Smart Connect enabled on the router? Try disabling SC and set manual channels and SSIDs.

Wow!!!
I thought I was going crazy!!!

Exactly the SAME thing is happening here.  Have this rooter for +3 years now and suddendly, download speed in the house went from 100 MB to 30MB and even 2 MB!

Rebooted
Resetted
Swtiched Smart-mode off/on
Changed many variable
NOTHING worked yet.

The only thing I didn't do is upgrading the firmware as I keep telling myself it was working 2 weeks ago and I didn't change/moved/Added anything in the house!

Link>Welcome!

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

Is this wired as well?

What happens if you re-load same version of FW. Try most current version as well.

ISP is Videotron (cable)
Wired to my PC

Tried reloading factory default and also updated to 1.20.... still all the same… :(

What's weird is that the upload is fine.  Can upload to the same speed all around the house same speed as wired PC… it's only the Download speed that decreased suddenly...

Is IPv6 set for Local Only on the router? Or Automatic?
Saw an issue years ago with D-Link routers not working well with IPv6 enabled on Videotron ISP. Should be an issue now however anything is possible.
Odd that the upload isn't effected while the DL is.  :-\
