Hello everyone, what am I doing wrong:
Asus AX88U - fw. Merlin 384.19 with spdmerlin-v4.11
local ISP fiber 900/150 Mbps
notebook wifi (connected to AX88U) test by browser www : 800/150 Mbps Speedtest by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test
AX88U by spdmerlin : 316/148 Mbps Speedtest by Ookla - The Global Broadband Speed Test
QoS, Traffic Analyzer, Appa analisys - OFF
Each time the speeds are at least half lower. I have no idea, the cores are not overloaded - from unusual ISP settings MTU : 1480 .
try withdrawing from TrendMicro completely. I've seen some chatter that this makes a difference even if you've turned off all TrendMicro features

Thanks for the advice but unfortunately nothing has changed still (normally I don't use TrendMicro features but I turned it on and off for a moment) :

Bandwidth - Download: 315.42 Mbps (data used: 162.4 MB) - Upload: 142.38 Mbps (data used: 239.1 MB)
Quality - Latency: 2.59 ms (0.70 ms jitter) - Packet Loss: 0.0%

I have tried several times uninstall spdMerlin / force update by amtm same problem :( . How can I completely remove spdMerlin and install it from "zero/null" because maybe there is something wrong stay ?

Ketchup, did you go to the Privacy tab on the Administration page and withdraw from the agreement as well as turning on and off the features? That's what they mean by withdrawing completely.

Thank you for your advice it worked. :
But why ? I don't see logic in this situation :( . TrendMicro options do not affect to results from PC connected to same router.

As long as it works, what does logic have to do with it? :p

By the way, when I turned off these permissions, I had to restart the router because the wifi network slowed me down to 350 Mbps. After reboot, the readings from the router and wifi are similar. Another mystery :). I wonder if official firmware ver. 386 also has a similar problem ?

Installed merlin recently and got everything setup for spdMerlin. However, when I run the speedtest, it get a not found message after accepting the license agreement. tried updating the app but it says everything updated. Any clues?

I am new to the forum I recently upgraded from an RT-AC68U to an RT-AX86U running Merlin 386.1 Beta 4. I installed Flex QOS v1.1.0 and spdMerlin v4.1.1 both seem to have installed without errror I am able to see spdMerlin under addons in the webgui but when I hit the run speedtest button nothing happens additionally, I can change settings and hit the save button and while it goes through the motions of applying settings it is not actually saving any settings as it reverts back to spdMerlin defaults. I have tried with both Firefox and Edge Browser and still no joy. I was hoping that by using FlexQOS and spdMerlin I could help mitigate the horrendous bufferbloat I am currently seeing i.e C-D and occasionally a B on speedtests via dslreports.com any suggestions on how I should proceed are most welcome.

I figured out what I did wrong I didn't run the initial clispeedtest when installing I chose option 2 to run it later went back in using amtm ran it now everything is working as it should

Same issue here. The solution was withdrawing from TrendMicro completely. After withdrawing I've tried to activate each feature at a time but the issue keeps once I activated just one of them (e.g., AiProtection).

Hi!
I am running spdmerlin v4.1.1 addon on my Asus RT-AC3200 (Asuswrt-Merlin 384.13_10)
connected to my 200 Mbits download line from modem Thomson DCM-475

This nice tool show me the attached graphs
which permit me to notice a large amount of packet loss

My question is not directly related to this addon
but is raised because of it. Thanks:

Should I care ?
Is it usually caused by the router or the modem ?

Any help/hints/suggestions will be appreciated

Thanks in advance,
ItiBi

Ok,
I am now connected to my windows 10 computer connected directly to the router (no wifi involved)
and did the following commands in a cmd window:

ping www.yahoo.com -f -l 1492 and have fragmentation on that value

... continue testing with different values until I didn't get any fragmentation

The correct value is 1472; so after adding 28, I got an optimal MTU value of 1500

My router's current MTU value is 1500 so it is already configured to that optimal value.

Any idea what can explain my packet loss ?

Thanks

If your side of the network is set up correctly, and it seems it is, then the issue is with your ISP or their equipment.

Thanks to both of you for your support.

I just contact my ISP to have them replace my modem Thomson DCM-475
they are sending me a newer Thomson TC4400

I will give you a followup in a couple of days
Thanks again
