Some customers claimed that after connecting to the Archer router, the wireless clients cannot get a high wireless speed even the ISP provide high bandwidth speed, besides, this speed is much lower than the official publicity, such as 450Mbps(2.4GHz), 867Mbps(5GHz).
What causes this issue?
Here takes Archer Archer C60 as an example
The Archer C60 only has a 100M WAN port, which means the maximum transmission speed is 100Mbps through this port. The WAN port is always connected with ISP line, so even you have a high speed bandwidth from your ISP, you can only get maximum 100Mbps speed in total. This is why even the negotiating speed between wireless clients and the router can get 450Mbps(2.4GHz), 867Mbps(5GHz), however, the download or upload speed of the devices is still 100Mbps at most.
What should I do if I have a high demand for wireless speed?
If your bandwidth speed is higher than 100Mbps from your ISP, it’s recommended to consider a router which has a 1000Mbps WAN port,such as Archer C9/C8/C7/C5/C2 etc.
If your bandwidth speed is much lower than 100Mbps, it’s eought to choose a router which has a 100M WAN port, it does not waste your bandwidth speed, and still can provide a better transmission speed in LAN as well.
