Speed issue using modem mode

Hi guys, just had VM installed today (long last but thats another story)

I had a speed test of 218meg. Nice. 

I have a Asus 5300 router falshed with newest Merlin software. Now i have my router connected via the Wan and speed sests now dropped between 90-99meg so half of what it was. hub in modem mode now.

Any ideas of what might be wrong?

Thanks.

Tim.

Re: Speed issue using modem mode

Have you any QoS settings enabled on the Asus?

Re: Speed issue using modem mode

It may be you've just hit contention issues and it will be fast again when your out of peak times.

however 100Mbps implies that somewhere something has ended up with a 100Mbps connection, do the ports on the 5300 indicate whether or not they have gigabit connections and if so are they showing that they do ?

That was my thinking but no. The WAN connector is gigabit and so is the Ethernet port the PC is connecting to router. Using cat6 too

Re: Speed issue using modem mode

I take it you have the dead spider Asus RT AC 5300, that is a beefy bit of kit.

I take it you are using the hub port nearest to the coax.

Do the speeds increase when you go back to router mode?

Have you done a power cycle of hub and modem? (always worth double checking the basics)

Have you tried testing the 5Ghz wireless speeds with the Asus with the hub in modem mode? preferably with an AC compatible wireless client?

Have you tried removing the Asus and connecting a PC to the hub? (A Hub reboot may be required.)

Exhausting all the possibilities may point to a faulty hub.

Re: Speed issue using modem mode

Seems like it is my pcs network card. Only working at 100mbps not gigabit. Turned gigabit on and it's sulking.

At least I think I found the issue.

Thanks.
