The wifi connection to my PS4 always results in very low bandwidth speed no matter what I do.
Having Charter internet, I was getting a rated speed of 60Mbps. My wireless router, an ASUS RT-N56U, is located on the first floor of my house. Any device connected to it, at the same level, would get an average of 45 Mbps.
The speed dips down on the second level to ~30 Mbps. I do own an xbox 360, located farthest from the router, and gets 25 Mbps. It does have a network adapter which could help boost the speed. The issue, however, comes in to the PS4 that is located on the second story directly above the wireless router that gets ~10 Mbps download speed.
I have attempted the following steps:
- Forward ports listed
- Move PS4 downstairs
- Connect PS4 through cable from wireless router (45 Mbps)
- Connect PS4 through cable from cable modem (55 Mbps)
I contacted my ISP, found out that I can get a data increase to 100Mbps. This boosted my other devices to ~50 Mbps on the second level, but did nothing to the PS4.
I have two PS4s, the problem with both, except one is connected through LAN. Wifi connection to PS4 (after restarting modem and router) starts at ~70 Mbps, then levels off to ~10 Mbps even after limit increase.
Is the problem with PS4? Or communication between PS4 and router?
As suggested in the comments, I tried turning the router on its side without improvement. I purchased a Netgear R7000 and tested it. LAN connection to PS4 improved to 100 Mbps (instead of 80) and wifi went from ~10Mbps to ~45 in upstairs PS4.
