WiFi Inconsistent on Different Devices Open | Networking
My WiFi is normally fine, but recently I have been having issues with drastically reduced speeds (down to <1 Mbps when normal is 200). Generally these are 1-10 min slowdowns followed by a return to normal internet speeds. The strange thing is it appears these slowdowns happen at the same times for 2 PCs in the house but don’t happen on phones (speed tests at the same time show <10 Mbps on PC and >200 on phone).
I’ve tried a number of troubleshooting steps: rebooting pc, router, and modem, switching router, updating WiFi drivers, and running troubleshooting through the windows troubleshooter and through my ISP (spectrum) app. So far, all that has seemed to work is resetting the router/modem but that only temporarily fixes the issue.
Why would I see slowdowns on 2 devices at the same time but not others? What device would be causing that? What can I do to identify/fix the issue?
I’m thoroughly confused because it seems that the WiFi is fine since my phone can get a good speed test but both PCs consistently have the internet go out at the same times, so that suggests that it isn’t a device-specific issue.
