    Did you ever change the channel you regular network runs on. That could explain why the second SSID would work better.

    What mode is the network running in. ie mixed, n only

    What security setting are you using. WPA2 hopefully.

    How long have you had the router.

    My local internet plan is up to 100 down and 10 up
    Both my AT&T S6 edge and new S7 edge are consistently getting the same 90 to 100mbps down and 15mbps up off of my 5ghz wireless router (DLink AC3200 Wi-Fi Router)

    Router is a Linksys WRT1200AC

    Network mode is mixed

    WPA2 Personal

    About 6-7 months

    As it turns out, that's the problem. Just for the hell of it, I set security to None, and now I get full speed. Set security to WPA2/WPA Mixed Personal, and it gets full speed. WPA2 Personal is the only setting that throttles the connection. May or may not be a Linksys thing...

    That is actually a bit opposite of what I expected. WPA2 should be the standard for use with N and AC networks. Have you tried restarting your router.

    It's likely the encryption type being used.

    Try switching to TKIP in your router settings. If you're already using TKIP, try AES.

    Samsung phones always have this issue with some routers.

    Your carrier deliberately slows down wifi to force you to use your data. Also GET RID OF YOUR COMCAST INTERNET. I HAVE COMCAST AS MY ISP, AND I PAY $600 PER MONTH FOR 0.0000000001 MBPS.

    I'm running about 20% faster download, and 30% faster upload compared to my G3, so it's not a problem with all S7s.

    Same here, I turned off security and i get 90mbps on the S7 now. I was using WPA2 Personal..

    I have a WRT 1900 ACS router that I bought about 2 weeks ago. Once again my S4 gets 90mbps with security on. My S7 gets 20Mbps with security on.

    Anyone think it's a Marshmallow issue rather than a Samsung issue? Just throwing that out there ...

    for my situation, it appears how my S7 interacts with WPA2 on my router. My router is a Linksys WRT 1900 ACS.

    could very well be a Marshmallow issue.

    It's a Samsung thing, sort of. It happens on their TVs, it happens on their laptops, it happens on their phones and tablets.

    But only with some routers. AES encryption makes for very slow wireless speeds. I have no idea why or how it happens, but i know you can switch the encryption method to fix it yourself, or wait for a firmware update on your router.

    The interesting part is that it's always the people building routers who need to fix it. Makes me think that Samsung is using the latest/best software for encryption and data transmission over 802.11, and the folks making some routers just fall behind.

    The bad part is that Samsung gets the blame when it's never them who need to fix the software. There's nothing wrong with your phones, it's your router.

    Mine seems fine. First image is from the S7 and the 2nd image is to the same server from my hard wired Mac.
    I'd say at least in my case the S7 is wringing every bit of speed from the connection.

    Is this only happening to the snapdrafon version? Maybe it's the chipset. It's happening on my att version.

    Just wait until you can get Gigapower. Its awesome!
    I wasn't aware of that service. I just googled it but unfortunately it's not yet available in my area. Do you have it already? What speeds are you getting? Price?

    I have the same problem. 25mbps download when my internet is 150mbps. Brand new S7 from ATT. Router is linksys WRT1900AC. I think it's the router and not the device, like others have stated. I absolutely hate this router and have had endless problems with it. Problems with it dropping devices, needing to be reset way too often, slower speeds than it should have, trouble accessing network storage on usb3.0, etc, etc.

    I've had endless trouble with an Nvidia Shield TV and this router. Certain phones have a real hard time. I had to return a windows 10 laptop (XPS 13) because of wifi issues. It all comes back to the router. These routers are supposed to have excellent read/write speed on attached storage, yet in my experience it's only 3MB/s, which is much slower than what you would expect on AC 2x2. It works better when devices are hard-wired but that's not the point of AC 2x2 wifi.

    I'll try changing the router encryption type. Hopefully that will help. I'll report back.
