Hi,

I know someone that is having issues with slow WiFi. They have WiFi coming from the cable provider's router, and they also have an Apple AirPort Express setup.

Is this type of setup known to generally cause slow WiFi speed due to having two signals?

I found earlier today from an apple forum post that the cable provider modem/router should be at least 6-8 feet from the AirPort Express. I will try to find the link.

 

Here is the link mentioning the 6-8 feet.

Thank you for your interest arlattimor. It ended up being a non-issue. I went and checked out the setup myself, and the router and the AirPort Extreme were not causing a conflict. I did a speed test and it came back very fast. I would note that they were close to the 6 feet away.
