Hello,

To get to the point here is my setup.

Modem to Wireless Router 1 to Switch to Ethernet port to Wireless Router 2 set in Bridge mode.

So my question is when I use any of the Wifi networks on Wifi Router 1 or any of the ethernet ports connected to my switch I will get speeds around 200+ MBPS which is what I'm currently getting from my ISP. However when I connect to the wireless network or wire my laptop directly to Wifi Router 2 I only get around 90 MBPS or about half the speeds. All these have been tested on both wired and 5g networks.

Any idea on what is going on. I've gone into both routers to make sure all my wireless networks are on different WLAN Channels. I've also made sure that Wifi Router 2 is setup in bridge mode. I've included links to my Wifi Routers and Switch below. The only thing I can think of is my Wifi Router 2 is a crappy router since it was an old one I had but its rated for higher speeds then what I'm currently getting.

Thanks,
Look at the specifications on "WIFI Router 2" Newegg says it has only 100Mbit wired ports. 90Mbit is as fast as that router can support.
