Moved 1/4 mi & now wifi very slow (same cox pkg & router)
I moved into a new home a couple of months ago, just a 1/2 miles down the road. I'm using the same modem/router (Netgear N450) and am on the same Cox Internet plan (Premier, up to 100mbps), yet the internet speed is significantly slower. So I bought a wifi extender. It helped only minimally.
So I had Cox come out and check the outside lines. (a few years ago I had slow internet and it ended up that the cox lines coming into the house were faulty. they replaced them and my internet was awesome). But this Cox tech said the lines were fine. He moved the router to a more central location, and we removed on PC from Wi-fi and connected it through internet.
THE INTERNET IS STILL RIDICULOUSLY SLOW. At my previous house, I could be streaming Netflix while my three teenage boys were all on the their computers, usually playing online gaming which requires a lot of bandwidth and we never had any problems. Now, if anyone is streaming netflix, then the internet is slow.
I've thought about getting a better router, but I really shouldn't have to - this one worked fine before.
Any ideas!? Thanks in advance.
