When I open Settings on my iPad, it shows me tie three networks that I am not connected to, one of which show a full-strength signal. This is a non-minor issue with WiFi: while I am not trafficking on those networks, still, I am using the same airspace, which means that I have to negotiate with those networks for bandwidth. If you look at your device and can see other networks, there is where part of your network speed is going to. Even one network, if it is in constant, heavy use, can slow you down by introducing endpoint stalls into your traffic. Go upstairs and see with whom you are competing for bandwidth – I would venture you may see different networks up there.
