Hi,

I have already sent this to tech support however, posting here aswell hoping for a quicker response. I have got this archer c9 from amazon a few weeks back. I have set it up without any issue however, the range of the router seems to be really weak. my apartment is not huge, around 1700sqft however, the router is not able to cover the entire apartment. i have put the router at one end of the apartment and have problems receiving signals from the very next room sometimes. signal is weak and in case of some phones, it often cuts off, while in the very next room just beside the wall. just to make a comparison, i have had dlink dir-615 for 5 years at the same place with same surroundings and it only had problems sending signals at the other end of the flat with 4 walls in between. i have tried disabling 5ghz band, also tried updating to the latest firmware. the firmware update seemed to have weakened the signal even more. ii have also tried different antenna position like directing them towards a certain way, not much of a help. am i missing something? is there something else beyond the standard settings that i should be trying out? hoping for a response asap. thanks.

Hi,

Are you speaking only for the 2.4GHz band ?

Have you tried upgrading the firmware to the latest version? I never had any problems with the range of my c9 but with this latest firmware update the signal is much stronger and so are the speeds.

Yes. I don't have a device supporting 5ghz band yet.

Have you tried different channels like 1, 6 or 11? Change channel width to 20MHz and transmit power to middle.

Latest firmware upgrade done. Different channels tried. Same old performance. Is there any way to test performance that will show for certain that the signal strength is not up to the level?

Could you analyze the wireless signal with Acrylic Wifi ?

On your C9, could you set the channel #1 with a bandwidth 40MHz, Short GI enabled, and show us the new screen shot ordered by RSSI ?
