Hello, I recently switched to internet 150 and wired connection is working perfectly fine however 2.4 and 5.0 wi-fi has been really off.

 

1.  Wi-fi 2.4 has an average speed of 10mbps-20mbps whereas wired I'm getting about 170ish, I believe 2.4 should peak at 60ish with it's limits.  The signal is very strong, 5/5 bars.  

 

2.  Wi-fi 5.0 has been getting like 3-5mbps and signal is very weak with as low as 1/5 bars.  I've tried moving closer to the router itself and it's still slow and weak signal.

 

I've tried selecting different channels for the wi-fi networks and rebooting router but results are the same.  

 

Also regarding a different issue, my room only has 1 ethernet socket and I want another one, would buying something like an ethernet splitter work or would that affect the speed?
