Hello, I've been holding off on posing the question as I'm still not certain if my issue is a coincidence or what I actually think is going on - maybe someone else has seen as well. I have a mix of wired equipment and three SSID's to separate traffic and control bandwidth by groups of devices. The lowest priority SSID is only allowed 1-5MB/s in total, with device restrictions at 1MB/s each and category restrictions for gaming and video at 500kbps. Sure, connect to my internet if you want, but it'll be slow and annoying w/out disrupting devices I need to run w/out issue. What I've been finding the past couple months is that a wired Xbox sometimes seems to follow the rules of this SSID vs. being totally open as a wired device. Of course, as a wired device, I can't block access to that SSID in an attempt to overlook these policies but wouldn't think I'd have to. Speed tests on the Xbox show around 300mb/s download, over 100mb/s upload - everything should be SUPER fast. However, while streaming a movie I often get sluggish playback and game updates very often show to work at the speed restrictions of that slow SSID. When testing, I have removed the restriction from that SSID and saw some speed increases during update downloads so it kind of solidified my theory here. Is this normal or a flaw? Also note - I do not have VLANs set up. I tested those out for the first time this week to see if it would solve this issue, but all I accidently did was kill my wi-fi. I'm still not sure what I missed when setting those up, so will try again later after reading the docs one more time.... but the wired devices worked fine. Wi-Fi devices were connected to the AP and their SSIDs, but no internet, so thinking I missed a step on the AP itself. That's another issue, though. Thanks for any help and insight!
