It was new for me, as i try to find out why my wifi download speed are so low/poor.

I found a guide on this page and it really works !
https://xiaomifirmware.com/guides-an...dragon-phones/
I repeat the steps:

1. Go to /system/etc/firmware/wlan/prima/
On developer (beta) roms starting from 6.10.13 version and 8.0.4.0 Global Stable ROM version WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini file is located in /system/etc/wifi
2. Find WCNSS_qcom_cfg.ini and open this file with text editor app.
Then add this line in the bottom:

gChannelBondingMode24GHz=1
3. Save the changes and reboot your device.

What you also can do in this file is to enable WMM:
Search the line WmmIsEnabled = 0
Replace it with WmmIsEnabled = 1

I confirm that this method works on RR 6.0 on my kenzo and on RR 5.8 on my santoni( Redmi 4). Although you need to go in wifi folder and not firmware.
My wifi speeds increased from ~50mbps to ~ 90mbps. Thanks for sharing this dude.
Also, I don't recommend that you should keep this as your default because many times, while surfing the net, webpage freezes and download meter shows 0mbps up/down, on both of my devices.
Maybe my router( ASUS RT-AC51U with padavan) is problematic. I don't know actually. Can anyone confirm that the problem is not just only in my case ?
I'm curious, what is WMM and what happens if we change the value ?

I dont get it... its supposed that my router only have 2.4ghz band but it works better with the config like this. (i tried by enabling both and then disable 5ghz and enable 2.4ghz only but with same result) so the default config worked better for me
Also i have to mention that i didnt found the 5ghz tab on router settings (admin permission) and i did a research on google too but dont found anything about 5ghz. my router/modem is a ZTE f660
