But I've tried resetting to factory setting, restarting the device, turning off 2.4GHz, and yet I'm still getting .50 mbps download and 0.43 mbps upload speeds.
I'm in a rural area, so I'm sure this has something to do with it. But as way of contrast, just using my Verizon phone hotspot improves speeds to 13 mbps download and 0.70 mbps upload speeds.
Any suggestions on what to do would be appreciated.
What is the zip code for where you were having the issue?
