Wifi devices dropping from wifi 6 to wifi 5 constantly


  • Wifi devices dropping from wifi 6 to wifi 5

    My 2021 iPad, MacBook and PS5 keep constantly dropping from wifi 6 to wifi 5 (from 1200mbps to 866mbps) and never moves back up.

    Signal is more than strong so this shouldn't happening at 100% strength.

    The only fix is to turn off wifi and turn it back on.

    I've had this issue on all firmwares including 3.6.0

    Ive got band steering turned off and my devices all connect to the seperate 5ghz wifi 6 band. Do you need band steering to "steer" wifi 5 to 6 isn't that just for 2.4 to 5ghz?

    I'm testing the new netgear RAX70 and don't have this issue. All my devices stay on wifi 6 for days on the same wifi channel.
