Device won't connect to closest pod. Very frustrating. My laptop connects to the gateway and the result is a 1 Mbps download. It was connected to a Pod yesterday and had speeds of 250 Mbps because the pod is close to my desk. I worked in another room for the evening, and now I can't get the laptop to switch back to the pod. How do you force a device OFF the slow gateway and ON to the fast pod next to my desk?
try turning wifi off/on to reacquire the pod.
fwiw: i get faster wifi speeds further away from router.
10 stop/start wifi and 5 reboots didn't change a thing. I had to literally set my laptop on top of the pod to get it to change. Cox needs to fix this.
