I have been having very slow wifi internet access with my desktop in my home office (eg. 1.5 mb download, when I'm paying for 50mb; I had the same problem with my laptop); direct connection to router I got 60mb; with wifi laptop in same room as router I was getting 45mb, but in my office, 1.5mb. So, I got a new modem/router (Arris sbg6782-ACH). Once connected I was getting 20mb wifi on my desktop & 45mb with my laptop in my office. This was pretty darn good. But the Comcast tech told me I could do better with the addition of a repeater. So I purchase a wifi repeater on the net, installed it; now I'm getting ONLY 4-7mb down with my desktop, but 50+mb on the laptop in my office. I immediately disconnected the repeater, to NO avail. I cannot get back to 20mb. I have tried resetting everything, downloading updates, changing channels, etc. etc. etc. to NO avail. I talked with Motorola, a tech guru, reset modem with Comcast, but nothing gets me back to the 20mb I enjoyed for over 2 weeks b/4 adding that d*** repeater. It seems like some repeater software was downloaded & it's overriding the actual Arris router. I am fried! Can ENYONE HELP, PLZ???
