I did notice that when I watched a movie using the Amazon Prime app on the player, it checked the connection speed and displayed the result and it's exactly what I see on my Samsung Galaxy S9+ on the home WiFi so the RE220 does not seem to be slower than the Arris Gateway my network is running on to begin with and the only speed issues I ever see are when too many devices are simultaneously using too much bandwidth (multiple HD TVs, cell phones, laptops, remote set top boxes, etc).  ...  "

comment
" ...  If you are like me and have a newer construction with LAN cables to each room, forget about "extending" the WiFi signal, but set up a separate Access Point in the points furthest from the Router, and you will have much better experience. ... it is a simple plug change on the wall and at your junction box and it becomes a LAN port .  ...  "
