I think WiFi6 router has faster Wireless connection. I saw some youtubers did the test. It can up to 800Mbps. But don't invest on WiFi6 yet. Recently, there is a new standard, WiFi6e. New chipset for router and device. Seems to be faster than WiFi6.
Funny you share that, is that the speedtest from your wired ethernet? im having a problem getting good speeds via wired. In most cases im pulling higher speeds via WIFI as opposed to a fixed ethernet connection.
I have an open ticket with Bell on this. I am pulling slow download via ethernet (200 to 300). We should be at getting at least 70% or more... or... 700 to 800 down. The upload speeds are in the correct tolerance but the download is unacceptable.
Seeing that you have a wifi6 router, i assume you are connecting to HomeHub via Pppoe. I notice when I try to use my google external router, and run a speed test from that router, that I lose about half the bandwidth (500/500). That **bleep**, so I removed the google router and am just working off the HomeHub.
I think the only way to get full service with a 3rd party router is to remove the HomeHub from the system, and use a media converter for the fiber line to the 3rd party router.
Thus far it seems Bell Gigabit service is a lot of smoke and mirrors. Via ethernet you should be able to pull at least 700 or 800 downspeed.
Aside from Bells internal modem speedtest, I cant any device to pull a speed even close to advertised.
I'm connected via Auto IP and not pppoe to the Homehub 3000. My router is Asus RT-AX58U dual band running Merlin asus-WRT firmware. I disabled WPS and WiFi on the Homehub and have a Rogers home security router hooked up to the modem as well.
I'm pulling around 500-600Mb down on average wired. Usually around 100-300Mb wireless with the other devices. Running mixed AX, AC and N modes. I have 3 AX devices, 2 AC devices and the rest are N. Utilizing both 2.4 and 5Ghz bands. I do get quite a bit of channel interference as well in the neighbourhood. I have channels static and set (not auto).
yeah id be unhappy with that... specifically losing half of my paid bandwidth in exchange for using a 3rd party router. This is why im suggest we should boot the HH3000 from the ecosystem.
You can buy this to convert your fiber line to ethernet>and hook your 3rd party router directly to the line in>put your home hub in on the storage shelf and now your router has full access to the gigabit
