I'm having a couple if issues with my fibre connection over wireless. I'm in sync at 74.3Mb downstream and 20Mb upstream. Over the 5GHZ wireless channel I'm getting 59.3Mb downstream and 17.2Mb upstream. Over the 2.4GHZ I'm getting a speed of 29.6Mb and same upload as the 5GHZ. I've split my WiFi out and used WiFi analyser to get the best channel to no avail. I have a EchoLife DG8041W Home Gateway super router with:
Any help will be great
Just had this error and a reboot of the router:
2019-09-03 23:59:05 [Critical][Config-Log] Terminal:ACS(18.104.22.168),Result:Success,Type:Set,InternetGatewayDevice.ManagementServer:,PeriodicInformEnable:1,PeriodicInformInterval:86400,PeriodicInformTime:2019-09-03T22:59:05.252Z

I ran the tests about 2m away from the router. I have nothing else connected to it. I'm using a Huawei media pad M5 with it up to date. I've also tried a Samsung galaxy note 9 up-to-date also in same location and speeds were 5GHZ downstream 59.2Mb upstream 16.9Mb. 2.4GHZ with 22.5Mb downstream and 16.3Mb upstream
I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing problems with your service
Can you confirm that the telephone number in your community profile is your current TalkTalk landline telephone number
I will try but please explain why the router has to be powered off for 30 minutes to resolve a issue with my WiFi channels giving completely different speeds. All I can think 30 minute reboot will do is clear my session from the network and re-establish a new one.
Done as requested
Sync - 68.9Mb down and 19.5Mb up
5GHZ - 63.5Mb down and 17.5Mb up
2.4GHZ - 30.7Mb down and 17Mb up
Both stored in supportal
Removed static IP to mac address and now getting
2.4GHZ - 33Mb down and 17Mb up
5GHZ - 61Mb down and 17.1Mb up
So slower if I don't assign a IP to the mac address. The plot thickens.
@BrianRoach Hi, is this not just the bandwidth issue on 2.4GHz - I think bandwidth on the 2.4GHz band is normally 20MHz (Default is normally Auto) but it can be set to Auto, 20 or 40MHz (it's not recommended to leave on 40MHz due to interference both to yourself & other local routers) so you could set to 40MHz just to test performance
@BrianRoach So no difference setting a 40Mhz bandwidth on the 2.4 GHz band, don't understand that unless your DG8041W has a limitation , my FAST5364 throughputs 38Mbps set to Auto or 20MHz bandwidth on the 2.4GHz band (Link speed 40Mbps, no other devices connected).
