    Default Asus DSL-AC68U slow WiFi tip

    While searching for something else I stumbled across this.

    It does make a difference on 2.4, on my Windows 10 PC anyway. Its been mentioned before, but is worthy of a thread title as it is one of those annoying little things that can drive you nuts.

    I worked out something was going on when my PC (2.4) was slow as hell in a speed test, while my Samsung S8 (5.8) was super fast.

    A few minutes experimenting with my M8S - in the WiFi settings it gives Line Speed.

    Set up the Asus with 802.1Q disabled, apply, reboot.

    M8S cold boot - Line Speed 39Mbps

    Enable 802.1Q, apply, reboot.

    M8S cold boot - Line Speed 65Mbps

    Change Channel from Auto to 11, apply, reboot.

    M8S cold boot - Line Speed 72Mbps

    These are only single test results so ...

    It should be noted that at the time of checking the Line Speed on the M8S I also checked the 5G speed. It varied widely, why not known, but in every case very much faster than 2.4G (up to a factor of 5).

    RT-AC88U set by default, don't know if that is a Merlin activation?
    There is a fine line between "Hobby" and "Madness"
