So I have been having all kinds of issues with my internet and network, so starting to think it's my ASUS RTAC66U router. (random speed drops, complete connection drop, streaming hicups and more) (I am pretty sure it's not the ISP, as when these things happen, and I swtich routers, or go directly to the modem, it starts working again)
My ISP provides a 45/4Mbps connection. On the ASUS (when its working properly) can indeed do 45Mbps on WiFi.
So I have setup (fresh reset, updated firmware (tomato)) the WRT54GL and it's maxing out at 20Mbps over WiFi. It's rated for 54Mbps, and I know you never really get that, but shouldn't I be able to get 45Mbps?
I have gone through the settings, turned on Burst Mode, and changed a few other things.
I just want to confirm it's actually working properly, so the test to see if I have the issues that I am having with the ASUS don't happen on the WRT54GL. Then I know it's the router.
And just to confirm, the wired connection on both are doing 45Mbps just fine.
Also, assuming after my tests, it's most likely the RT-AC66U router, do you think I should get it replaced (or buy a new one, I don't know if I have a warranty) because it's probably just a dud, or is there a better router out there right now (in terms of modern, new ones)? When I bought it, I was pretty sure after doing research that it was the best one available, or in the top 3. Now I worry that maybe it's not that good, but hoping it's just a dud.
