    ASUS RT-AC88U really slow 2.4 GHz speed

    i just bought this on 24th August 2018, while i moved the older RT-AC87U to my office (it's time the office had an upgrade too).

    but recently, this new router of mine has been giving me problem, on a 2.4 GHz wifi network, i get speedtest download like 4 mbps at best.
    on 5 GHz, i get my full allocated 30 mbps down.
    for the above, i used both my phones to test it.

    so far, what i've tried:
    - Factory Defaulted it (both restore and initialize button)
    - changed SSID
    - unplugged the LAN devices from router's butt, and rerunning the speedtest (to the same effect. 2.4 GHz connection speed is still ****).
    - my grandma downstairs is complaining she cannot stream youtube smoothly, the pressure is on me. (i need 2.4 GHz to penetrate all the way to ground floor, RT-AC87U did it without breaking any sweat, why couldn't this be the same?)

    and for the love of god, this damn thing costs like 450 SGD.
    any ideas? please help?
    a brand new router shouldn't behave like this, even my 3 year old RT-AC87U kicks this new router's ass with half its eyes closed.
