  1. I'll try to keep this as short as possible. I have been using Ilox 70 mbs since April 2018. My TV situation changed about 8 months ago and I began to stream IPTV services using Firestick. I was having buffering issues so I did a test on the Firestick speed. My laptop would get 65- 70 mbs sitting next to the Firestick, but the stick would only get 30. I had a Netgear extender lying around so I got an ethernet cable adaptor for the Firestick and connected the extender and started getting 50 + mbs. The buffering issues disappeared. For 3 months, then the Firestick speed dropped to 30 while the laptop speed remained at 70. The Netgear was a few years old so, based on internet reviews I tried a TP Link extender, no difference. I decided to up my Ilox speed to 300mbs, thinking if I was getting a lower percentage of a larger number that would be enough. No difference. I had been using a Steren router since day one with no problem but since that was the only other end of the connection, I decided , based on internet reviews, to try a TP Link Archer 1750, still no difference. I decided to use the Steren router as an ethernet cable Access Point, and fortunately it had WISP protocol which made setting up a bridge extremely easy. I started to get 60 - 70 mbs at the Firestick while the laptop was getting 150 -250. No problems. That lasted about a month. Now I am getting 20 - 30, or less, at the firestick, while the laptop at the same location gets 150 -250. I should add that the router and the AP are in 2 different rooms with a large wide connecting arch between, so almost in the same room, direct line of sight 25 - 30 ft apart. Any ideas why the in room wi fi is dropping so drastically?
