Reply To: 2.4 GHz works, but confusing observations in Wifi Analyzer

I disabled 5GHZ. No difference

I am once again seeing a performance issue on 2.4 GHz. It did not show up using the speed test at https://www.speedtest.net/, so I had closed the original performance. However, it does clearly show up when downloading large files. at 2.4 GHz, transfer speed varies between 356 kb/s and 1.6 MB/s. when I pause transfer and switch to 5GHz speed increases to between 14 and 16 MB/s. Not sure if I should reopen other thread or just show it here…

I am using 3 wifi analyzers, each with slightly different behavior

-> On Windows 10 I am using the Wifi Analyzer from the Windows store written by Matt Hafler. I sent a query to him to see if he had seen this before. Behaviour is as described above.

On Android phone I am using the Wifi Analyzer from the Play store by Kevin Yuan. 2.4GHz SSID does not show up on networks, but when I show the meter for the connected network it usually shows no signal, but occasionally kicks into high signal for short periods (between 10 – 30 seconds).

On Android Tablet I am using the Wifi Analyzer from the Playstore by AdbdelRahman M Sid. It usually shows the SSID on channel 8 , but occasionally the graph for the 2.4 GHz SSID disappears

There does not appear to be a correlation between the three analyzer tools. The periods when the phone shows a signal for the 2.4GHz SSID do not show up differently on the table or Windows tablet.

I can record screen, but cant see anywhere here to upload file.not sure how to share it
