Android devices slow on WiFi?

I've noticed my Android devices getting reeeally slow on my MR33 APs. 

When I look in the settings menu the network speed is sometimes dipping down to 96kbps and sometimes at 325mbps. 


I've tried switching to Dualband without band steering, Channel is set to automatic.


The issue is both LAN and WAN when it happens. Wired connections are fine.

 

What are some things I can try on my MR33 when I notice my android devices are performing slowly?

Disable 2.4Ghz.

User 25.13 firmware.

 

Check out Wireless/RF Spectrum and make sure there is plenty of free spectrum.

Check out Wireless/Wireless Health and see if it says anything interesting.

 

You could also take a look at Wireless/Air Marshall, but it doesn't sound like a security issue to me.

I would turn 2.4Ghz off now.  It is nothing but a pain.

Re: Android devices slow on WiFi?

Have got the same Problem, but it doesn´t matter if I use Dual Band, only 5 GHz or only 2,4GHz (activated option by support).

 

My phone is also disconnecting from the WiFi several times a day. But as it is only one Android device (iphones and other Androids work fine)

So, you may have this problem only at this device as well?
