Asus RT-ac5300 speed problems - Page 2

post #11 of 18
go into the router firmware settings and disable QOS if it's on. Asus bundles a QOS that will limit each device to a certain amount of bandwidth so all can connect at that same speed.

i.e. if you have 60mbps and the router knows 10 devices are connected it might choose to allot 6mbps per device by default. stupid, i know.

that's what it sounds like to me at least.

Hey thanks for the reply. I have QOS turned off but oddly the router just started working normally again. Well mostly. One day last week it caused a drop in speed down to .7mbps. Tested it out of the modem and it was still full speed. Woke up the next morning problem was gone again. Really have no clue what it is but it seems that it comes and goes.

I know this is probably not going to help your situation but one of my friends who is quite tech savvy went through 2 Asus routers that did the same thing to him.... All of a sudden the speeds were awful and he could never figure out why. He did the same things as you... Swap firmwares, try custom etc. First one he replaced with another Asus and 2 years later it did the same thing. Not sure why he went Asus again. Should have learned his lesson.

yea i got the ac-88u and im happy with it for now, honestly. in around 4-6 years though i'm probably going to get some cisco hardware if i can afford it. just so much more stable and reliable.

Sounds very similar. Prob going to end up sending it back and get them to send another but in all honesty in the search of a router that will keep up with my increasing demand and also never have problems it seems it just can't be found. In the past I've gone with dlink, Cisco, linksys and this is my first Asus. It's sad bc honestly all of the reviews seem to favor the router saying its one of the best you can buy. Which is the only reason I spent the money on it in the first place. Was hoping to setup ports load up custom firmware tweak it once and be done. Never is that simple.

It absolutely can be found and exists. The Netgear R7000 is fast and rock solid. I have deployed about 10 of them now and have had zero complains. I have had one in my house for almost 2 years and it is absolutely flawless. A friend of mine and I bought about 6 different AC 1900 routers and did iperf wired to wireless tests with them and the R7000 smoked all of them so that's the one we stuck with. I figure it gets about 320 Mb/s real world throughput wired to wireless based on our iperf testing with a good AC wireless card. I have been running my desktop on wireless for 2 years now since I moved in to my new house ... I could probably go run cables but I have never had an issue related to wireless so I haven't done it.. It's that stable and trouble free.

Also another thing I would like to add is anything above AC1900 is kind of a joke...AC 1900 is the fastest single band AC... Full speed 5ghz single band and 2.4ghz. Anything above that uses 2.4+5ghz bonding which is kind of useless unless you are doing crazy things and need above 300 Mb/s throughput. It relies on software and special wireless hardware. There are only a handful of wireless cards that can use it. I wouldn't get caught up in the speeds. I have 180/20 internet speed from Comcast and with my R7000 I get full speed on all of my devices wired or wireless 5ghz. 2.4ghz is a bit too saturated for super high throughput speeds anymore.

I was 30 seconds away from buying the nighthawk x8 but chickened out due to the large number of complains about dropping signal and poor 2.4 performance. My buddy has the r7000 and he would agree with you. He loves it. Maybe I'll look into selling but if it is a lemon I'll have to get another unit first since I believe in karma haha.

The way I look at it is that the R7000 has been out for a while and Negear has had a long time to get the firmware stable. They had issues with firmware in the first few months but got it figured out. The R7000 is solid in the hardware and firmware department and has a lot of sustained success. There hasn't been a single model from another manufacturer that has stuck around this long lately. Other manufacturers are always trying new stuff and coming out with new models. I believe the R7000 is just one of those products where the company got it absolutely spot on perfect which in this day and age seems to be a rare occurrence.
