I used to be with Sky and their modem/router never impressed me regarding strength of wifi signal. I therefore went for a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router with a Netgear DM200 modem which improved things a lot. I recently changed to Plusnet and noticed that their supplied modem/router seems to offer an even stronger signal than the the Netgear setup. I am assessing signal strength by using a tablet and looking at the signal strength bars.So figures obtained for example. 1. In room with both routers. Both Netgear and Plusnet signal showing maximum. Though the Plusnet shows the generic network name and both extensions ie 2.4GHz and 5 GHz so for the Plusnet router I have 3 sets of figures both the _2 and the_5 on the Plusnet are lower than the generic one. Now the Netgear does not split it I just get one signal indicator even though it transmits on both frequencies. 2.Now if move out into another room some 10 odd metres away both generic signals are less but the _2 and _5 on the Plusnet increase to maximum. 3. If I go even further away the _2 and _5 on the Plusnet are still the strongest with both generics even weaker than in case 2. Now what all this ramble is getting to is why is the Plusnet signal stronger than the Netgear even though the Netgear is quite qan expensive setup and why does the Plusnet show as the generic network and both frequemcies and why are these two frequencies greater than the generic one at any distance from the router? I hope this makes sense what I am trying to say.
