Max 700 0.16 download 22.2 upload


#1

Hi everyone,
Recently I purchased a MAX700 we are probably 20km from the nearest tower, so each usb has a single external directional Yagi antenna. I plugged in all the yagi’s this morning and got a speed test of: 37mbps down and 17mbps up, was very happy. Now an hour later I am getting 0.17mbps down and 22mbps up. With such a good up speed, it cant be the aerials, so I am wondering if I have not set up the router correctly. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
Quinton

Don’t think this is related to the configuration as it work for the first place. Can you further confirm the speeds by connect the USB to PC and perform the speed-test ?

Are you tested using 2.4Ghz WIFI connection ? If the test is run on 2.4Ghz, can you test with 5.Ghz WIFI connection ? 2.4Ghz WIFI connection always influence by the environment ( Surrounding 2.4Ghz WIFI channels used). Interference may happen if WIFI channel is overlapped and this may affect the performance.
