    Anyone else with airport extreme as wireless router. Having big wifi issues on Classic. only get around 1-2mb speed when put on dual band.
    If you push phone to 2,4ghz you'll get 5-7mb.

    Tested phone through Imac via Wifi and then speeds are normal for 2,4ghz band.

    Just tested also with my passport, same result. it seems to be combination of bb os and airport extreme thing
    changing it to 2,4ghz results in normal performance. 5ghz just creates problem

    Are you able to advise what OS are you currently running on the devices?

    We got rid of our Airport Extreme and bought an Asus router. Problems with being compatible with the other devices in our home and speed issues too.

    I think the airport extreme will work quite well if youhave all apple products. I have few apple products and sometimes they don't work with others as expected. They're very protective of their siblings has to be closed knit... :s

    I have similar issues with 5ghtz connections.
    Have a time capsule and airport extreme as range extender for my house network. It works seamlessly. Though initially the setup required changing to WEP security protocol and setting it up (I have kept it as hidden network). I have been using 10.3.1 release with passport and different version had different response and connection speeds with 5ghtz connection.
    2.5ghtz is more stable. I think it has to to with standardisation of WiFi protocols which is better handled by apple devices for 5ghtz.
