    In the last week or so I have found that my device continually tries to connect to wifi but fails and galls back to 4G.

    I have restarted router and turned off 5GHz network even though devices were connecting fine previously with both 2.4 and 5GHz switched on.

    The other thing is that it is not just my device. Others in the house are having the same problem with both apple and android devices.

    Has anyone else seen this please?

    Too many devices connected to wifi may be the cause

    Hi both, yes I think it is the router, but not about too many devices as there are no more connected that before this issue started. Have just updated router firmware. 2.4 signal just seems to be weaker than it was.

    New from ISP with upgrade to FTTC.

    Has been working fine since mid June.

    Given you have a fiber broadband connection but numerous devices are having issues with connectivity in general, is this slow-down issue just with WiFi or is it also happening to anything connected using an Ethernet cable plugged into your router?
