I have Virgin 350mbps fibre broadband and i have the ax58u connected as a secondary router via cat6 in a blackspot i was getting.

I done the auto setup on the asus router and orignally I was getting the full 350mbps download speed however after 1 hour only seem to get 80mbps.
If i am in close proximity to the primary virgin router i get 350mbps.

Only seem to get... ??? :)

What firmware are you running on the RT-AX58U? After flashing the firmware, you wanted to use, did you do a full reset on it?

Sorry only seem to get 80mbps.

If 'standard firmware' = Asus stock, dump it.

RMerlin firmware is worlds better (even the latest Beta 2 build, link below). Just be sure to flash the RMerlin firmware first, then fully reset it, and then format the JFFS partition on the next boot before you put it in use (make sure to reboot the router at least twice after checking the box to format on the next boot and then clicking 'Apply' at the bottom of the page before rebooting it).

Sorry I am not too technical with routers etc. Is there a guide on how to do this?

Please look for the link in my signature below for the M&M Config and also the Nuclear Reset guides along with the other posts too that may be of help.
