Hi there and welcome
I would advise to do a reset of the router and set it up again to remove any problems with the firmware.
On the back of the router is a reset button. You may need to use a paperclip and hold the reset button in for 10 seconds then release.
Then setup the router again and tell me how the wifi connections now operate please.
Ok, if it improved after a reboot, a reset will get it working a lot better based on this. Points to the firmware.
I have marked the question to never close, so any issues just let me know here
If you have any problems or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
ok, but it was not just cutting power to the modem and router that I requested that you do.
I see lots of issues daily with all modems, so I am not the best to ask about this.
Before we go any further I want you to do the instructions I have been giving please.
ok, can you do a reset of the main modem as well an then check if the connection improves
ok, with the Modem being so old, the next step I would do is request from your provider it is replaced, and then test. They should do this free of charge.
Ok, let me know how it goes please.
The higher speeds are not even really needed for Gaming, its more for streaming like Netflix ect, so if you plan on doing this I would advise for it.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
