No range compared to old router

  • Hi Everyone,

    I was using a Netgear Nighthawk that I had for about 3 or 4 years. The main reason for my upgrade to the Alien was to get better speeds out in my back yard.

    The the Netgear I was getting about 100 down (my internet is 400) and it would randomly not work at all. With the Alien, I am getting about 17. I thought maybe it's because it's going through four walls so I tried the same distance in my front yard, almost exactly the same speeds.

    Everywhere else seems to be great. The garage went from 21 down to 55 and the driveway went from 234 to 448. I spend most of my outside time out there working on vehicles so getting almost double is nice!

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thank you!
