Question Wifi Speeds

Hello. Just curious if anyone could give me some insight as to why my wifi speeds are so sporadic. I can one minute get 33mbps and a minute later only 12mbps for example. And also sometimes it seems like it is accelerating, like it starts out slow on a speed test and works its way up... kinda like it was sleeping. I am on stock firmware right now and this particular router is only 1 day old. Also it seems to happen on both 2.4 and 5ghz. Thanks for any advice . Dennis

Wireless is a finnicky beast - sneezing can change the performance of your wireless network. (I'm joking, of course, but wireless really can be that sensitive).

I'll assume you haven't played with any advanced settings (if you have, try setting them back to stock values). My best advice is to run the latest .270 firmware release (or the latest from Asuswrt-Merlin, your choice), ensure both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz radios are configured to use the clearest channel you can find (a tool like inSSIDer will help with this), and check to see if the drivers for the wireless adapter on your machine(s) is up to date as well - some performance problems can vanish just with a small update.
