    Workaround or fix for slow upload speeds on Asus Zenwifi XT8 w/Verizon Fios?

    I tried placing a switch in between the ONT and the XT8 and I too had no success. If you can, I'd try turning on the router, but turning off the radios and then putting the XT8s in AP mode. Let us know if that does the trick for you.

    Workaround or fix for slow upload speeds on Asus Zenwifi XT8 w/Verizon Fios?

    Yes - there are many people on this forum who have found that XT8s don't play nicely with FiOS. ASUS knows about this, but has never addressed it. It's maddening. I would definitely try putting the kit in AP mode and see what happens. I don't have the Verizon router, so I haven't gotten...

    The Asus ZenWiFi AX XT8 is a POS, right?

    I'm not going to go as far as call it a POS, but I definitely am not happy with my investment in this system. From day 1, I have not been able to get wireless upload speeds to match the download speeds. Not even close...and ASUS support has been abysmal.

    Same here - but I'm not holding my breath.

    Anyone using 802.11ax with upload/transmit greater than 195<>230Mbps?

    Any unique tweaks to your setup? I'm like the OP. Great download speeds (~500 Mbps), but can't get past 200-250 Mbps on uploads.

    ASUS XT8 slow wifi speeds

    Can you share any additional details on how you have things set up (i.e., specific settings)? I'd kill to get 500 down on my set up.

    ASUS XT8 slow wifi speeds

    @Thirteen The issue (as I have experienced it and seen in other threads) is when you're connection is north of 300/300 plans

    ASUS XT8 slow wifi speeds

    No. There appears to be an issue with how ASUS handles fiber connections. It has nothing to do with your ISP.

    ASUS XT8 slow wifi speeds

    I have a very similar issue to you on Fios. Wired speeds are fine, but my wireless upload speed is terrible. I use 40 and 157 for the control channels and that seems to give me the best performance

    ASUS XT8 slow wifi speeds

    Are you on Fios? ASUS has crappy upload speeds when used with them. Also, have you tried channel 157? That works best for me.

    Version better for XT8? Lag spikes still?

    @Ari_el I have the issue with all my wireless devices. MacBook Air M1, Surface Laptop 3, iPads, iPhones - doesn't matter. I simply cannot get above 250 mbps upload. The M1 and SL3 are connected at 160Mhz. When the Surface Laptop is connected to its dock, I get the full 500 mbps U/D. I take...

    Version better for XT8? Lag spikes still?

    I just upgraded to 43181 on my XT8 system - haven't noticed anything in particular other than ASUS has NOT resolved the slow upload bug for those using Fios...

    AX86U Slow upload speed

    ASUS has had issues with upload speeds for MONTHS for users on Fios - I have an XT8 based network with wired backhaul and I have given up trying workarounds

    New Asus RT-AX88U Slow Upload speeds on Wifi only

    FWIW, I have the exact same issue with a 400 u/d connection on FiOS with an XT8 system - I can only get 500/250 on any wireless device while I get full speeds on wired connections. It's definitely an ASUS issue - one they are aware of - and they have done nothing to resolve this.

    [Review] Asus ZenWiFi AX

    So I finally got around to trying this out....still getting no more than 250 Mbps up. This is frustrating.
