Hey guys

Don't know if anyone knows if this is a thing but when i connect directly from PC to phone hotspot i get full DL - UL speed,
but when using a wifi extender/ wifi repeater it seems to cap the DL speed eg " 50DL/20UL direct " "10DL/20UL hotspot"

is this to prevent multiple devices using 1 sim

I use my rain mobile sim on my router and speeds arent cappes.

Sounds like your wifi extender or wifi module on your pc cant handle the higher speeds or you getting some sort of interference.
