    Question Internet sometimes cuts out for a few seconds / Wifi is extremely slow

    I just moved into a new place, and thankfully, the internet here is a lot better than it was in my parent's home. I usually get a consistent 90 Mbps download as well as 15-20 Mbps upload.

    [SOLVED] Why is my 2.4GHz less than 10 mbps when 5GHz WiFi is faster?

    About a month ago, we were told to upgrade to the Xfinity XB6 Gateway from the XB3 model due to our decrease in speed and intermittent internet disconnection. As soon as we replaced it with the new XB6 Gateway, there was a sudden increase in speed and "less" intermittent disconnection. To cut...

    [SOLVED] Can I connect 2 routers together without lowering speeds?

    My internet setup is slightly weird. Our home is attached to our business that has a 90Mbps connection via modem. That modem leads to a router in the business and a router in our house.
