    Does the AC-1750 B1 (AC66U B1) support WireGuard

    I'm due a router upgrade anyway, so I'll probably grab an AX soon. Is the AX88U the only WG compatible version?

    Does the AC-1750 B1 (AC66U B1) support WireGuard

    I tried running a spare laptop with pfSense but that's not really practical. PiHole sounds a bit more practical, but for the money I'd be spending, I'd rather get one of these: https://www.gl-inet.com/products/gl-mv1000/ I generally don't mind messing around with this router, so if there is a...

    Does the AC-1750 B1 (AC66U B1) support WireGuard

    I've been using Merlin for the past couple years. The advanced OpenVPN configuration has been a blessing when it comes to setting up 2 or 3 streaming devices, but it's not very usable for other devices, since the speed is capped at ~20 Mbps due to the single-threaded nature of OpenVPN and the...

    Diversion Diversion - the Router Ad-Blocker

    This might've been asked before. But does this work behind an OpenVPN which is running on the router itself?

    Confusing upload speed issues

    Update: - Initialized the router - Tried older firmware to rule out new bugs - Uploaded trx through ASUSTek CFE - Now on latest 384.16 firmware - Unplugged everything from the ONT & router except for essential connections - Disconnected all wifi devices Nothing changed, unfortunately. One...

    Confusing upload speed issues

    No, I did not check initialize all settings, but I did that last month when I was playing around with installing OpenWRT. So if that was the problem it would've fixed it. Yes, only TV.

    Confusing upload speed issues

    UPDATE: I found the problem, now I just need a solution. @ColinTaylor, your hunch was right, it seems like it's gotta do with simultaneous connections. ---Fast.com results--- Parallel connections: 1 Down: 20 Up: 1.5 Parallel connections: 15 Down: 50 Up: 14 Parallel connections: 30 (max) Down...

    Confusing upload speed issues

    I just did a factory reset & updated to newest Merlin firmware today actually. 384.13 was the last firmware I had, now on latest stable version.

    Confusing upload speed issues

    It's off right now. This has been an ongoing issue so I've been through all sorts of configurations on both the router and the end devices, same speeds more or less. For comparison, here are results from Ubuntu, single and multi: https://imgur.com/k37IZMf https://imgur.com/2RAMT1y

    Confusing upload speed issues

    I've tried occupying just 1 LAN port and using CAT6, upload wasn't fixed. I'm certain it's not the router. I used to have symmetrical gigabit 2 years ago and it handled that just fine. Unless something's happened to it since. Not that I recall, and certainly none related to networking. But...

    Confusing upload speed issues

    Like I mentioned earlier, it's not a newly-developed problem, I've had it for a while now. So I have a very good understanding of it I believe. Yes, the speed test is multithreaded. Heres the difference between multi threaded and single threaded:

    Confusing upload speed issues

    What does testing with a different brand Ethernet cable show?: I've tried several cables and even borrowed 2 CAT6 cables (modem -> router -> PC). They all give the same upload speeds. Are you able to connect to another LAN port on the router to test too? Your Ethernet cable connector may be...

    Confusing upload speed issues

    Doubt it has anything to do with antivirus. Other than Windows defender, I don't have anything else. Firewall is off. Catch this insanity: Both were taken on the same Windows PC, on the same server host.

    Confusing upload speed issues

    I'm happy to accept it as an issue with Windows, but I've formatted countless times, and the ZenBook is also on Windows. Besides that, the fact that I get full upload on SOME services and not others confuses me to no end.
