I'm pretty sure the car dealership downgraded their wifi. It was slow before but it's painfully so, now.

My WiFi at home was painfully slow for a while, yesterday. Then it corrected itself after a while, somehow....

I don't know why they'd do that - it's really hard to choose a slower speed these days. Internet providers tend to discontinue the slower speeds and if your old router in your home/business dies, it's unlikely new ones would be available slower (I mean, unless you find old stock or buy used). On the other hand, if they had a lot of new connected equipment that's sharing the signal that may impact things.

Or I could be completely wrong. I'm tired.

I'm guessing my home WiFi slowdown the other day must have been due to too many people trying to get on at once. I can't think of another reason. It was working....but SO slowly. Then, after an hour or two, it went back to normal....

IDK but they have a wifi for "Penske guests" so I'm assuming the employees are on another router. It's never been that slow in all the times I've been there.

That's very possible. Cable-based internet services, especially, can be affected by a lot of users at once, but all of them can be.

I'm not having any luck getting on the Discord thread on this tablet this afternoon.
