Hello, I've had the AC1200 for a couple months now, but never used the 5G Band yet as my computer never had the adapter for it so I never really knew if there was a problem with it, it worked well with the 2.4Band.

I recently bought the Archer T4U to be able to use the 5G Band, and now I realized that the speed in the Extender is less than I would get if I simply connect directly to my router.

Is there something I missed while configuring it? Or is that the way it's supposed to work? I would expect for the speed to be the same with the extender, specially since I get a better signal.

 

Here's how it looks when connected directly to the router.

 

And this is with the Extender
