          Hi best. Thank you for the time you spent writing this review. Allow us to help you with the challenges that you're experiencing with the router. Make sure that the router's firmware is up to date. Change the wireless channel for 2.4 GHz to 1.6 or 11 since these are non overlapping channels. Tell us more details about it at with your contact details and the link back to this review.
