    WAN Port Selection QoS Speed Test Build 388.1

    I noticed in the latest build 388.1 on AX86U the option to select vpn port for speed test no longer exists, was this a miss? Now I can only test speed via the WAN port. Any thoughts or knowledge of this change? Thanks !

    spdMerlin Speedtest Data Usage > 1GB

    @Jack Yaz: I noticed that sometimes when the data usage for a download or upload exceeds 1 GB then the columns "Download Data (MB)" and "Upload Data (MB)" contain e.g. 1.0 instead of 1024. For example a speed test outputs: Bandwidth - Download: 859.44 Mbps (data used: 1.0 GB ) - Upload: 939.96...

    speedtest result over wi-fi

    Hey all, So I just got AT&T fiber internet installed today, 300 mbps up and down. I set the gateway up for IP passthrough, so I could use my TP-Link Archer C5 (with OpenWRT) instead of the unit AT&T provided. My wireless throughput over the LAN averages between 45-50 MB/s (360-400 mbps)...
