I've the chance at my home to have the optical fiber for internet. I currently have the provider modem, then my Asus Rt-N66U connected, than my workstations in LAN.
Recently, my provider upgraded his offer, and I now got 250Mbit/s (in download).
I wanted to check if I really got this speed, and runned several speed tests(I runned them each hour for one day. Depending on the speed test, I was having between 120 and 150MBit/s.
I opened a case in my internet provided, which asked me to do a test directly being connected to the modem, without the router.
Not really convinced, I run my same test, and then, I got some average speed near 220-240Mbit/s. I then thougt it was maybe the cable, so I tried with the other cable to see if the speed was still at 220MBit/s, and it was(so here I tested the cable between my computer and the router and the one between the router and the modem).
I looked on my router, I've disabled anything I could(DDNS, VPN, QoS, DDOS Protection, firewall), and I still got the same speed.
My router was on the Tomtato firmware, so I restored the stock firmware, to see if it comes from a bug/... of the firmware, same release.
So: I was thinking that the Asus RT-N66U was a great piece of hardware when I baught it, and I hate that the basic modem of the internet provider can provide a much better speed than this router, so what can I do?
Is there something else I could test?
Are you encountering the same kind of issue?
What router can you advice me ?
