    Poor download speed over WiFi with Asus RT-AC3200

    I recently purchased an Asus RT-AC3200. I've now set it up, downloaded and installed the latest version of firmware from Asus and I'm not getting the download speeds over WiFi that I was expecting to get. The WiFi signal is strong (dB signal strength/attenuation figures are 2.4 GHz -52 dBm and...

    Practical Limit to the Number of Devices that can be on my Home Network?

    (I posted this, then realized how long it is - sorry, a lot of info, but I erred on the side of too much info versus not enough) First, my setup: I have an Actiontec C1000A modem/router. My ISP is CenturyLink Type: DSL (internet only - I don't have landline phone setup) Speed: max 10 up/1...

    Internet goes slow, only restart helps

    Hello Merlin forum! I'm using ASUS RT-AC66U (box says H/W version: b0) and Merlin WF 380.64_2 (last release atm). I'm having this issue for about 2 months. Every 1-4 days my internet speed goes from ~96 mbits/s to ~8 mbits/s, every website opens super slowly. The router log shows this...

    Linksys WRT54G to Linksys WRT3200AC - No Difference

    My ISP doubled my download speed to 100 Mbit/s and upload to 10 Mbit/s recently and I thought it was time to replace my ancient 54G router from Linksys. I bought and installed the WRT3200AC with a new CAT6 ethernet cable without a problem. I now receive 98 - 102 Mbit/s throughout the day. My...

    Bottlenecks: SSD vs HDD with 2 port LAN aggregation

    I'm considering buying a QNAP TS251+ and trying to aggregate the 2 LAN ports to improve my transfer and connection speeds. I think I would be able to get to approximately 220MB/s read/write, which would exceed the capability of a HDD (roughly 70MB/s?). So I'm considering installing a pair of...

    [RT-N12 D1] Poor wireless range

    I just purchased an Asus RT-N12 D1 to function as an AP while connected to my N56U which has been performing well. However I have not had good performance with this router, in particular on range over 2 walls. This router was meant to replace a strong performer, the Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH which...

    RT-N16 Limiting wired speed?

    Hopefully I'll be able to figure out if my router is the cause of my current bottleneck or if there is something else that I should look into first. The issue that I'm running into is that if I max out my downstream (or at least max what the router can handle) at approximately 15MB/sec the...
