Factory reset AC88U + Which QoS Type?

Cancellation

New Around Here
Hi guys,

I recently upgraded my ac88u to the latest beta [386.4_beta2 > 386.4_beta3] and for some odd reason speeds are extremely slow? VM M500 UK.

No issues at Virgin Media, BQM is healthy. The only thing I did was update to the latest beta and update spdMerlin and Diversion - now my speeds are 60-120Mbps out of 500Mbps (previous last 15 days the slowest its been is 493).

I skipped the AC88U and went direct Super Hub > PC via CAT 7 in router mode and 528Mbps returns..

Have tried QoS enabled and disabled (95% of my speeds) no luck. Any suggestions?

If no: How can I completely wipe my router to factory as if it's brand new again + reset/wipe all AMTM add-ons/USB 2 flash pen?


I tried the WPS method but some reason when it's back on and the setup wizard it remembers previous info as if it's not been reset (SSID example)? Surely resetting it should've "forgot" all of this?

Stuff I've tried:

Cheers.

Go into Administration - System and set Enable JFFS custom scripts and configs to No. Apply that change.

Now unmount any USB drives using the icon at the top right. Once they're unmounted physically remove them.

Now reboot the router. Download and install the latest non-beta version of the firmware, 386.4.

Once it has been installed and it has rebooted itself go to Administration - Restore/Save/Upload Setting, tick the Initialize.. box and click on Factory default > Restore.

If you want to wipe your USB drive just plug it into a PC and format it as normal.

Thanks, worked a charm! My normal speeds have returned not sure the cause - but we're pulling 551.07Mbps and 37.09Mbps again.

What's a good QoS to use? My package is 500/35. I was thinking of using 95% of my package but can't decide between Adaptive QoS, Traditional QoS or Bandwidth Limiter?

Or do I try a third-party like FlexQoS? My router doesn't support CakeQoS (iirc).

Good to hear that worked.

As for QoS, I'd suggest you don't use it at all with those speeds. Not unless you find your particular use case needs it. My current speeds are slightly higher than yours and in the past they've been a lot lower. I stopped using QoS once my speeds exceeded about 150Mbps down and 15Mbps up, but of course your usage will be different than mine.

I'm also on Virgin Media. ;)
