    Hi folks,

    This has probably been asked before, but I can't find an answer that works. I get 100Mbps at my modem and when I wire my PC directly into that modem, but when I connect through my RT-AC68U, the best I can get is 50Mbps or so. Nat acceleration is set to "auto" and I can't find any other settings that make a difference. About the same result when trying wireless. I've updated the firmware (which may be the problem, I suppose).

    What am I missing here?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    While it certainly can be a firmware issue as indicated by Grisu, my experience has found it to be an auto-negotiation issue between your modem and the ASUS. This can be caused by the Ethernet cable, please try another, or just an incompatibility between the auto-negotiation of each device. Please refer to the ASUS to confirm that the connection to the modem is and remains at 1Gbps. Additionally, refer to the system log of the ASUS and see if an interface is posting "Link Down" and "Link Up".
