So I just lost a tonne of download and upload speed.

In my pursuit to try and find out if I could increase my internet speed, I went on to the 192.168.0.1 ip and turned of Band steering so I could see individual SSID's on my network. when I switched this off It immediately caused a loss of speed, So I turned it back on and applied it then is administered that application. Now for some reason I have lost half of my download sped and also completely fucked, my already terrible upload speed.

 

How can I get it to return to it's normal speed. Have I touched anything I shouldn't have?

IIRC, band steering allows 5ghz supporting devices to use 5ghz bandwidth without having two seperate SSIDs. In theory if you reboot your computer or the device you are using to download and the router itself it should work fine.

You do not mention if you actually tried connecting to both of the SSIDs when this was off.

It may also have changed the 5Ghz channel and width.

Router: i5-7200U appliance running pfSense WiFi: Ubiquiti nanoHD (~700Mbit peak throughput)
