I have 1/1Gbit connection + asus ax56u

I am hosting FTP and HTTP server at home, everything is OK, but server uoload speed is limited to 3MB/s at both FTP and HTTP(it starts at 10MB/s, and slowly drops to 3MB/s)

(So my friend cannot download from my FTP server faster than 3MB/s... Which is weird, as we both have gigabit


When I use old linksys router instead of ax56u, speeds are 60MB/s....

Any ideas why asus cause the problems?

Here I made picture, I hope it will be more clear

Any ideas what can cause that? Asus should be more powerfull than linksys...


Part of the Furniture
Disable QoS on the router?

If that fails try cloning the Linksys' WAN MAC address onto the Asus' WAN interface.

I solved it...

It was because of switch(cheap 1gbit 5port tplink) which I had connected before router(so it was ISP->Switch->Wan port of router... Cos of IPTV)

How is that possible that same switch works with linksys, but not with asus? :)

And also that regular traffic was OK, just portforwarded one caused problems
