    RT-AC68U (hardware A2) firmware 3.0.0.4.380.3831
    Speedtest, with a W7 laptop with an Intel AC 7265 (2x2) adapter at 5 GHz and at fair distance of about 6 meter from the router and one thin wall in between:

    The ISP subscription is 500 Mbps up and down.
    I cannot say for sure where the upload "limitation" is caused, maybe at the test host end :)

    Speedtest.net gets a bit odd with high speed uplinks...

    DSLReports does a bit better job there...

    DSLReports seems to stick to USA based servers, thereby blurring the results for tests initiated outside the USA.
    Anyway DSLReports reports averages (from the Netherlands to the USA) of 300 Mbps.
