Wi-Fi speeds?

  • I am looking at buying a Amplifi HD and replacing my Orbi. When connected to the mesh points do you see any reduction in speeds? On the Orbi I get a full 250 that I pay for regardless of which point I am connected to. I want to make sure with the Amplifi is similar as it only has dual bands.


  • My speeds are pretty bad. On my orbi and previous Asus (standard router) I was able to copy from my NAS (connected via bonded gigabit ports) at around 67meg / sec (megabytes, not bits). I just hooked up the AmplifiHD and I was getting about 30 meg / sec.

    Opened a ticket for this and for my my extreme WAN speed swings (900+ mbits dropping down to 300mbits a couple hours later).

    My Orbi and Asus routers never achieved the 900+ range, so I was all set to return the orbit and keep the amplifi... but then the wireless speeds and WAN slowdowns are making me rethink it.

Looks like your connection to AmpliFi was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
