So for no reason my internet was really slow. Long story short I found out that I get .3 megabits/s on channel 11. I used to get 50 megabits. Now i have to use channel 10 and I get 20 instead and I have to switch it all of the time. Help anyone?

Have you contacted your ISP about possible problems on their end?

Switching wifi channels all the time?  Not how you do these things.


Proper procedure is to download a channel scanner like xirrus wifi inspector or insider,  You then scan and review what wifi channels are used in your area. Ideally you would chose one of the non overlapping channels which are 1,6 and 11


What you are trying to address is not having your wifi channel in conflict with a neighbors.  In a high wifi density area this can be a challenge.


So start with downloading and running xirrus wifi inspector and posting a screen shot of what it sees so we can better advise you.
