    Netgear speedtest (ookla)

    Hi, Netgear routers come with an integrated speedtest. It is meant originally to be used when setting up QoS, but is helpful to test the bandwidth speed of the WAN connection. It is a custom version of the well known ookla speedtest. It can be run from router web interface, NG phone or tablet...

    Looking to go AX and aggregate WAN ports to an SB8200

    Hello! First time posting, so please excuse any oversights! I'm looking to upgrade to AX with one of the options currently available. At the same time, I have a Gigabit plan with Xfinity/Comcast through an SB8200 cable modem. My ultimate goal is to aggregate the 2 ports on the SB8200 to an AX...

    Best router for a 1Gb WAN + a question about Asus routers

    First post, so hello to all and straight to the point: The situation: -I recently got a 1000/60Mbps connection as an upgrade from 250/50Mbps; -I currently have an Asus RT-AC56u running Merlin 384.6 The router tops out at ~800Mbps for a single machine, less if two or more load it at once. This...

    Only achieving 10% of my gigabit plan

    I have a Gigabit plan through Wave Broadband and I can only actually achieve 10% of those speeds. My moden is a Hitron CGNVM-3589 which is in residential gateway mode. My router is an Asus RT-AC66U with AsusWRT-Merlin installed. I tested my Internet with my 20011 MacBook Pro both wired and...

    Can't Get Gigabit Throughput From Your Router?

    I've seen numerous posts saying SNB's wired routing throughput test results aren't matching up to real world results with "Gigabit" fiber connections and I'd like to know why. So if you're someone who is getting below 500 Mbps throughput from a router we say should deliver > 900 Mbps, I'd like...

    Best router for a symmetric Gigabit connection

    Hi there! I'm currently using an Asus AC68U for my symmetric gigabit connection and—whilst I'm certainly not complaining—it seems to take around 300mbps off my connection speed (both wired and AC wireless), presumably due to limitations in the CPU/RAM. Does anyone have any go-to recommendations...

    ASUS RT-AC88U with symmetric 1Gbit/s connection

    Hi, I got myself 1Gbit/s download/upload and I'm using a brand new ASUS RT-AC88U. However, I'm running speed tests and I see results which are far from the promised performance. Example: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/5305585555 I read somewhere that this may be related to NAT...

    AC68w/u 1000mhz - Reasonable expected routing speeds?

    This is a question about the ac68 routers (with the newer 1ghz processors) and speeds. I'm in Seattle and one of the ISPs are rolling out some gigabit FTTH in my neighborhood. I eagerly signed up of course, but its caused me to take a look at my infrastructure. Like I said above, I've got a...
