    I have an RT-AC88U ASUS router and recently updated my fiber internet to gigabit. This is CenturyLink gigabit. (Actually they only promise 940.) I have been testing my new service to see if I am actually getting gigabit and indeed I am. BUT, I can only verify this with my ThinkPad X1 Yoga...

    No "Smart Connect" on the NETGEAR R7800.

    Hi, I've been working on my home network after my old R7000 died and could not be resurrected. In another thread here I've been advised to step up my game and get a R7800 which is more likely to utilize my gigabit connection through my NETGEAR CM1000 modem. I have ordered a R7800 so I can test...

    Netgear R7000 isn't up to speed on a gigabit connection through CM1000 modem

    Hi, I recently got a Netgear CM1000 modem on my gigabit Xfinity connection. When I hook my laptop up to the modem directly I am getting close to a gigabit connection, at least above 900 Mbps consistently. But when I hook up (ethernet) through my R7000 with fully upgraded stock firmware I'm...

    So, I have been trying for the last couple of months to come up with an optimal solution for improving my CenturyLink Gigabit fiber. I have the CL ZyXel C1100Z. Terribly slow interface, but accelerates PPPoE well and if all I was doing was browsing the web, this might be good along with a...
