Slow wi-fi with new router
I signed a new home internet contract with Optus recently and it came with a new wi-fi router. It is very slow and the range is hopeless. I threw the old one out (which had originally been supplied by optus), which was a lot better and I never these problems. What options do I now have to get a good strong wi-fi signal? Any help appreciated.
@baysidebounce, we've got you connected to the NBN?
Which router did we supply you with? The White Sagemcom 3864 OP modem or Black Sagemcom F@st 3864 with AC?
You're looking to upgrade to a different Optus supplied modem or purchase your own (which is an option).
We could like at upgrading you to the AC model. That's a dual band modem 2.4Ghz + 5Ghz.
As far as range is concerned, 5Ghz doesn't have the same range as the 2.4Ghz frequency, but it's faster over shorter distances.
Obviously, range is a concern, that's probably not going to be helpful. BYO modems are an option.
