Wifi Woes

Hey Guys, need some help, just picked up a Surface 3 and it is suffering with awful 5ghz WiFi speeds. It came with windows 10 already installed and I have done all the updates available but nothing improves it.

 

I have an Asus router A66U I think and I get 12mb/s on the 2.4 band and 500kb/s on the 5ghz band. I have used the network on my Surface Pro and that works fine so its an issue with the Surface 3. I have checked for a router firmware update but its up to date.

 

Anyone any ideas!

 

Thanks

Chris

have you compared your adaptor settings to that of the Pro? Maybe there's a setting that is misaligned?

I have compared and do not see any differences that jump out. It is very strange, File transfer from my server is as follows:-

 

Asus Router RT-N66U Router connected to 2.4GHz Wifi

File Transfer Surface Pro 9mbps

File Transfer Surface 3 11mbps

 

Asus Router RT-N66U Router connected to 5GHz Wifi

File Transfer Surface Pro 14mbps

File Transfer Surface 3 487kbps

 

Not sure what to do as I need to be able to use the 5Ghz with my Surface 3

 

Thanks

Chris
