    RT-AC86U w/Asus-Merlin, Slow Speed - How To Get Max ISP Speed?

    Wait, it was not the cable! The cables are fine (sorry to slightly defame you, Cable Matters). As I was digging through the (embarrassing) mess of extremely hard to access cables to pull out what I thought was the offending wire, I saw that I had run cables in to and out of my CyberPower...

    RT-AC86U w/Asus-Merlin, Slow Speed - How To Get Max ISP Speed?

    OMG, that was it! It was the "modem to router" cable. After decades of "checking the cable" and it not being the cable... it was the cable. There is a lot of LOL here at the moment! 337.45 Mbps! Now, my earlier test of the Motorola modem. I wonder if the modem is bad. Or could a few years of...

    RT-AC86U w/Asus-Merlin, Slow Speed - How To Get Max ISP Speed?

    Yes, but is there a way to change that or is it a bad router?

    RT-AC86U w/Asus-Merlin, Slow Speed - How To Get Max ISP Speed?

    Hi everybody! My ISP recently upgraded our max DL speed from ~100 Mbsp to about 300 Mbps. Unfortunately, using Speedtest.net, I am still maxed at about 95 Mbps, both wired and wireless. I am hoping you enthusiasts here can help me. You have always been so helpful in the past! Some details: I...

    Thanks you two, you have given me much to think about. As this is not a pressing issue, I will take the advice you both give, continue learning, and wait for new models. That was really helpful! Thanks!

    I would like help increasing my network's range with a range extender/access point/etc. I have an Asus RT-AC86U with Merlin. I want something nice, as well as relatively future-proof (future-resistant?). Ideally it has USB for future network storage and general flexibility. I have a somewhat...

    Hi, sorry for the newbie questions, but I am interested in learning more about amtm and the other scripts it gives access to. I have searched, but cannot answer my questions. 1) Can someone direct me to an introduction for accessing amtm in Asuswrt-Merlin 384.15? I understand I will need to use...

    RT-AC86U 3.0.0.4.384.10007

    Again, is there a way to have the firmware NOT automatically update? How do I change the settings so I can "check", but not automatically install? Thanks!

    RT-AC86U 3.0.0.4.384.10007

    I have the RT-AC86U. I used the built in UI to check to see if the new 3.0.0.4.384.10007 firmware was there. Just by taking that look, it automatically installed the new firmware. Unfortunately, I wanted to wait a couple of weeks for bugs to filter out. How do I change the settings so I can...

    RT-AC88U FCC Compliance...?

    I am curious about the new FCC regulations. I have been reading and still have these questions: 1) Are the new RT-AC88U routers that are being sold right now (end of May 2016) on Amazon (in the US) already compliant with the new rules? 2) Also, how much of the compliance is based on firmware...
