I have dualboot windows and manjaro. My internet speed is around 300mbps up and down. When I am close to the router or use ethernet I get the speeds I get the speeds I am supposed to be getting. But when I go to my room which has two walls between the router The wifi speed deteriates heavily. On windows I’d get 60mbps up and down at 2.4ghz and 90mbps at 5ghz which is acceptable for me. But on Manjaro I get about 10 mbps 2.4ghz and barely get signal for 5ghz and is heavily unstable.Youtube stats for nerds doesnt go below 40000kbps on windows but on manjaro it cant go over 900 and I cant even watch a 1080p video. How do I get better ranges on wifi in linux.
EDIT: this issue isnt specific to manjaro. I have deteriated wifi performance on every distro I tried. But manjaro seems to be the most sluggish as I cant even watch a youtube video.
OK, then it’s time to start troubleshooting!
It’s 05:15 AM where I’m at, so gotta get some Z’s…
I’ll reply later. I know there are many people struggling with iwlwifi interfaces on the latest kernels.
Just one thing before I pass out here, have you tried adding:
as a boot parameters on startup? Any changes?
Also try manually disabling power saving on your wireless interface:
$ sudo iw dev <devname> set power_save off
(Change with the name of your wlan connection of course.)
Are you dual-booting with Windows on this machine?
If so, make sure to turn off the “fast boot” option, as this may have an impact.
In Windows 10 it should be in “Control Panel→Hardware and Sound→Power Options→System Settings”.
Disable the “Fast Startup” option in “Shutdown Settings”.
