GL-MT1300 bandwidth very low when in repeater mode

i am on FW 3.203 and I am not using any VPN client. I have two separate networks this connects to. I’ve tried on both 2.4 and 5Ghz and while 5Ghz was a hair faster (a few mbps), it’s still nowhere near where it should be. One WAN source is my house wifi and one is my phone hotspot. I was doing some bandwidth testing and noticed I get about 1mbps up and 15mbps down when using either device as the supplied WAN. The devices I am using to test speed (my laptop) is right on top of the MT1300 so that isn’t an issue. if I connect a laptop (also tried my phone to ensure laptop wasn’t doing something weird) directly to either of those two networks that I are supplying the MT1300s WAN I’m at 25mbps down for my phone hotspot and about 45mbps from my home network so bandwidth supplied to the MT1300 is good. I did install and ran a bandwidth test directly from the MT1300 and it’s better but not great (12.5mbps down and 22 up). I’ll include that data below. I did some research here about some unchecked “Use builtin IPv6-management” to resolve this speed issue and i tried it but i already had the IPv6 toggle off so I figured that wouldn’t matter and it didn’t. I’m not sure what else I can do here but any suggestions would be appreciated.

It is very strange.

Can you just reset the firmware and try again?

I have a new firmware can you try?

After some more testing w/ this FW you gave me and the 3.203 and the problem really seems to just be w/ the 2.4Ghz radio. In my current location from my phone hotspot I’m getting 33/2 72ms latency on 5G and 2/2 75 ms latency on 2.4Ghz. The phone is about 1’ from the MT1300.

Just moved the MT1300 into the house to test w/ home wifi and sure enough the problem is following the 2.4Ghz radio.

Home wifi
home wifi directly 5Ghz 36.5/19
MT1300 to hostpot 2.4Ghz 3.6/24
MT1300 to hotspot 5Ghz 36.8/26

I am using 2.4G and it seems OK. Are you able to change wifi settings of your home wifi? e.g. channel?

I cannot see it being both my phone AND home wifi 2.4Ghz that are the issue. I doubt both would have the exact same issue just with this device. It has happened at two separate locations also (One with phone at home and one with it at a restaurant I brought it with me to test at) so it’s not a congestion issue. I connect any device directly to my hotspot on 2.4 and all is well. Anything passing through the MT1300 on the 2.4 radio is horribly slow. Every other device I have connected on 2.4 here to either my phone hotspot or my house wifi has great bandwidth. Even my MT300nV2 works properly. Something is weird w/ 2.4Ghz on this MT1300.
