With WiFi, it's radio so there are usually other transmitters around which
may reduce your bandwidth if they are on the same channel. You might be
able to change the channel you are on to get better throughput.
The user guide for the TL-MR3020 has this:
- This field determines which operating frequency will be used. It is not
necessary to change the wireless channel unless you notice interference
problems with another nearby access point. If you select auto, then the AP
select the best channel automatically.
