WiFi is shared access so it really doesn't matter if 2 folk are on the WiFi. Not only that but let's say one is using mixed 802.11g and the other is 802.11n. Well, extra work on the WiFi. Not only that but we don't know about WiFi in the general area.
Did you get out your Android phone and pull up the WiFi Analyzer?
The ipconfig didn't tell me much here such as your exact setup.
I've been getting a headache over a issue that has been troubling me for too long now, and I was wondering if any of you have input or help to what the issue may be.
A little background:
I live in a basement aparment, where my landlord (which lives in the upper pard of the house) owns the internet. It's a 70/10 MBit Network, which is surprisingly good compared to my earlier network speeds. Since their router is in their living room, which is through walls and floors, and for some of our rooms, the signal is not good enough. I used my router as an AP to increase the wireless range and so I had the possibility to connect my PC with a wire. My last apartment had 20/5 MBit, and I could watch youtube videos or twitch streams, at the same time as playing any game I wanted, and my girlfriend could also watch her Netflix shows without any of us getting any buffering or lag.
Now I get issues if I have chrome or firefox open while playing any game, and my gf and I cannot stream anything at the same time. I am finding this very peculiar, since the internet is over 3x as fast as the last apartment. Of course, we have the landlord on the same inet, but the face that they are not techy geeks, has a kid and the guy is also an athlete, so he travels a lot and is not home very often brings me to the thought of the AP being the issue.
I am not a internet or PC geek of any kind, but I know the basics. I've tried resetting my router, also resetting theirs through their admin panel, I've talked to ASUS support (my router is a ASUS RT-N66U) and they tried to guide me but with no avail, I still sit with huge general lag.
Since ASUS has a "AP mode", I didn't configure any more than just setting it in AP mode, then connecting my router to their router with an ethernet cable, then connecting my PC to my router through a second ethernet cable. I recently bought a brand new cable, because I thought that might be the issue, but no fix there either.
I will upload a picture of the ipconfig page, becuase it looks totally different with a lot of additional values which I never saw with my earlier networks.
Any tips is really helpful. I am going crazy. YouTube can't even buffer a 1080p video while two people are on the same network.
Please ask questions and I will answer them as thoroughly as I can with my knowledge! Thanks
