Generally you expect the 2.4 to be slower with better WIFI coverage and the 5 ghz to be faster with less coverage. You can try selecting specific channels and widths. Sometimes attached devices can affect other devices on the band such as an old 'G' WIFI printer on the band or another device taking the resources. BTW, those numbers are not out of line.

For your information, the 2.4GHz has slower speed but larger wifi coverage area compared with 5GHz. You can change the wireless settings to improve the wireless performance, including wireless channel and channel width. 

 

Besides, please ensure that the firmware is up to date. 

 

Good day.

I changed the wireless channel to 2 and width on 40 mhz. I had 10 MB/s download and 9 MB/s upload. Thanks a lot for the solution. I have ~the same speed as on 5 ghz band.

@Abdulwahab there's an app on Play Store called "Netgear WiFi Analytics". Download it and see how many routers are connected to which channel. Then go in to the router's configuration page and select the channel (from 1 to 13) that has the fewest routers connected on. (for an example:4 routers are connected to the channel 7 and 1 router is connected to the channel 2. You have to set your router to channel 2 because it's the freest channel) Then set the channel's width to 40 mhz. If this doesn't work for you, try changing router's position. My router was between two old speakers, then I moved it on a table. My wifi speed increased from 100 mbps to 350 mbps on the 5ghz band and from 60 mbps to 100 mbps constantly on the 2.4ghz band. I hope one of those two methods will work for you! I hope I'm not wrong.
