    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    What wireless performance are you seeing on yours when it's a dumb switch vs AP? As a dumb switch I'm maxing on the 5ghz channel at ~330 mbps when 4ft from the router.

    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    That worked sorta, wired on my wife's laptop I'm now getting 700mb or so down, while wired from her laptop into the century link router I get 930 + mbps. My wireless performance seems to have dropped also, I'm now peaking at ~330 mbps and before I was getting closer to 400+ mbps. My upload speed...

    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    I'd bet it's just an issue with their routers + broadcom chipset. I think they've been lucky to hide the issue because fiber is very rare still / expensive in the US. If most people had fiber & 1 gig / s connections every new purchaser would have seen it. On my old 100 mbps connection I of...

    Very cool, I'll try this tonight. This is still extremely lame given the cost of the router :(.

    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    Ah I see what you are saying you are suggesting I don't plug my fiber router into the internet(aka WAN) port of the nighthawk but just into a normal port. Then leave the nighthawk not in AP mode but with NAT open and DHCP off with a static ip. Correct?

    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    but in AP mode DHCP is disabled already so why wouldn't I see the perf increase then? Have you done this with the nighthawk R8000 specifically? I tried turning off DHCP (not in AP mode) on my nighthawk before and opening the NAT but I didn't see any performance difference. The only thing I...

    Yeah I tried to do that also but didn't see a difference. When it's in AP mode basically everything is turned off and it should perform well but still stuck at 400 mbps max.

    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    Yeah I had read about those things so I turned off traffic metering for instance which put the nighthawk into an infinite reboot loop for 30 minutes or so (which was fun :). I factory reset it and turned it into an AP using their UI option to do so, this turns off QoS & Traffic Metering also...

    R8000 Throughput Issues with Fiber

    Model: R8000 Firmware: Latest OS: multiple(win, osx) So I got fiber installed at my house and I'm noticing major issues with the max wired bandwidth on the Nighthawk R8000. Plugged in I peak at roughly 450 mbps, which is obviously very disapointing given the cost and quality of the router...
