    WAN throughput slower without NAT

    I recently added an RT-AC68U to my home network to create a subnetwork. However, after disabling NAT my WAN throughput dropped to 400Mbit (CPU1 100% and CPU2 60% load) from the recent 930Mbit (CPU1+2 at 100% load). Is this expected behaviour? Shouldn't disabling features increase speed rather...

    WAN to LAN throughput

    I want to upgrade the Linksys EA6700 router on the home network because it is slower than the cable internet service. The ISP recently upgraded the subscribed service from 100 MBPS to 200 MBPS at no additional monthly fee. However, the router only puts out 90-93 MBPS through the LAN ports...

    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)...

    Router antenna position for best coverage?

    Hi guys, I'm trying to improve my router's signal coverage in my home. My house has 2 floors and the router is located in the upper floor, mounted high up. My router (D-Link DIR-882 AC2600) has 4 antennas. According to what I've researched online, the best antenna position is like an L shape...

    Advice: Mesh System or 2 Routers?

    I’m looking to upgrade my home Wi-Fi system to account for a fairly large amount of streaming devices. Have 3 kids (8, 11, 14) and 2 adults, no cable, so there are definitely times we are all streaming (or playing video games) at once (& probably an occasion where 1-2 of the streamers is also...

    AC68U LAN to WiFi downlink throughput issue

    I suddenly have a strange issue with my Asus RT-AC68U, that I have had for many years now with very few issues. I frequently transfer files to and from my wifi laptop and wired desktop or NAS. I normally get (and have been getting for years) downlink and uplink speeds of 40-60MB's as reported...

    Does hardware acceleration (CTF+FA) only affect high bandwidth connections?

    I have an ASUS RT-AC5300 and I only have 60 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up. Let's say I want to use a feature that's not compatible with hardware acceleration, such as "IPTraffic (per IP monitoring)". Would disabling harware acceleration affect normal performance on my connection (or connections below...

    RT-AC66U throughput and logging

    Hello. I am running a RT-AC66U with FW 380.68_4 and I'm running into a throughput issue when I have logging turned on (accepted, dropped, or both). My internet service is 80M / 10M. With any logging option turned on I'm at best seeing 43M throughput, this is because my router CPU is maxing...
