    (marked solved) see bottom post

    wifi not using connection to router unless I turn on airplane mode in phone.

    LG Stylo 4 Plus, stock ROM, no mods.
    router is SBR-AC1750, connected to comcast @ 200Mb
    in router, set up wifi connection over 2.4Ghz called xxx
    In phone connect to xxx.
    Ookla speed test app says maybe 5Mbps
    Turn on airplane mode,
    re-turn on wifi connection to xxx.
    Ookla says 37-40Mbps.

    What am I doing wrong.
    It is as if it is using/trying to use OTA, - even though the SIM is removed for this test!!!

    Thanks.
    Many times.
    EDIT: I found that if I use 5G instead of 2.4G I get a speed of 137Mbps. Why such a difference??? (distance is always 2-3' from router) router set to 2.4: g,n ; 5: a,n,ac

    nite.

    well 2.4 ghz travels farther at slower speeds while 5ghz will travel faster at shorter distances. 3-4 feet is not very far so 5ghz will always be faster.

    yeah, but such a difference?
    Tomorrow I will try different settings of the 802.11, for 2.4G, and see if that makes any difference...

    followup. I did play with 2.4Ghz setting and got the best with g,n and 40Mb but only about 30Mbps.
    Switched back to 5Ghz and immediately got 105Mbps.
    So, I don't understand it, but I guess this is solved...
