Im on unifi 800 mbps but cant get past 150 mbps speed

Using 2.4Ghz network i got around 50 - 80 mbps . 5Ghz using my laptop got around 120 - 150 mbps and 5Ghz on my phone got around 100 mbps . Im using default router Dlink AC1200 dir842 . I know the router cant support 800mbps but isnt it too slow even on default router ?

check your network/wireless connect speed , for my DWA-125 wireless Adapter , near TM router so it get 150Mpbs , if distance far or block by any wall , it may get lower , at my room it only get about 72Mbps

 

my unifi is 30mpbs , so there is no any issue for lower speed get , if my plan is 100Mbps , the 150mbps will no problem , but for the 72mbps i only can get max 72mbps ,

 

distance , other device using same band also will effect the speed

Hi try change your router Channel to band  4 (149-165) under 5Ghz wifi. You can find this at Wireless Settings or Advanced Settings. tq

Cat5E can support up to 1000mb speed.

@zimi231 

 

that modem theoretical wireless speed on 5Ghz Band is around 867 Mbps, 

in real world case, the speed will be lower than that,

so you will need to get a new router to fully optimize your Unifi 800 Mbps.
