    so i bought a new router and have noticed my phone being really slow when connected to wifi. things take a long time to load. phone works normally fast when i turn off wifi at home or am connected to other wifi spots. im trying to see what settings within the router i need to play with so the phone can be fast again. router is linksys ea6100, has option for 2 and 5 ghz, i tried switching between both and got same results.

    Use an app like Wifi Analyzer to see which channels are most congested, and set your router's channel to the least congested one. (See your router's manual to learn how to login to the settings from your computer browser.) You can also check to make sure QoS (Quality of Service) isn't turned on--QoS prioritizes certain connections over others, for example to make sure a device dedicated to HDTV streaming doesn't get slowed down by other devices on the network.

    i tried all of that as well as the guide, same results

    whats weird is when i do speedtests, the speeds come out the same. i feel like its the connection somehow even though theres full bars for wifi.

    So this started happening with the new router? You didn't experience slower WiFi speeds on your phone with the previous router?

    Signal strength and throughput is the same...hmm, could this be a name resolution issue perhaps? You could test this by comparing access times to content by name or IP.

    What DNS servers are you using? You could try some alternate public servers like Google's (8.8.8.8, 4.4.4.4).

    no, i already checked, and its set to automatic updates anyway.

    its not showing any dns servers (its all zeroed out) yet dhcp server is enabled...

    You should definitely put in values for dns on your router settings from your pc browser. I'm using the Google public dns 8.8.8.8 with a secondary dns of 8.8.4.4. I'm not sure how dhcp server can resolve the values without dns settings.

    It is the Location Service with is slowing down wifi in some cases, you can try to disable it in the settings or set it to "GPS only" or something
