Re: RPi 3B+ Wifi AC

Hi cgodoy,

Thanks for your input, very insightful. Unfortunately, I don't have an answer either. I updated / upgraded as well with no better results than you got. My workaround was the USB dongle; not entirely satisfactory, but... It works.

Thanks again.

Re: RPi 3B+ Wifi AC

Excellent, thanks for the input, I'll give it a go. Just curious if you retested with speedtest-cli and what were your results? Hi HawaiianPi, Sorry for the late response, I have been away and not had access to my Pi. I did some testing today. You mention that your router settings are n/ac mixed mo...

Re: RPi 3B+ Wifi AC

That D-Link 842 can use 3rd party firmware I think, maybe worth a go for more control Read up on it first. Can you test on other routers? (it was D-Link I had problems with iirc, but an older one) Thanks for the input bensimmo, much appreciated. I will find someone with an ac router and give it a t...

Internet speed tests are a terrible way to judge network performance.

Re: RPi 3B+ Wifi AC

... and only with 802.11n/ac broadcasting which gave me wireless n speed How are you measuring wireless network speed?

Re: RPi 3B+ Wifi AC

What happens if you log in to the router as admin and disable the wireless "Smart Connect" and the 2.4GHz, leaving only the 5GHz running? And what do you get from sudo iwlist wlan0 scan | egrep "Cell|ESSID|Signal|Channel|Rates" Hi neilgl, I'm new at this and answered your question at the same time ...

Re: RPi 3B+ Wifi AC

Yes, the country is correct. Thanks for your reply, much appreciated. I have read many of the threads you are referring to as well. I am able to connect on 2.4gHz no problem. I can connect to the 5gHz but only if my router is broadcasting mixed mode n/ac. When it is broadcasting ac only, the onboard...
