1GB/SH4 issues

For some very odd reason I'm seeing two issues. 

 

1. speeds from SH4 are terrible. I've tested both Mac & windows laptop, i receive fluctuating speeds between 300-600 mbps (tested using SamKnows) whilst each device is on ethernet on it's own with no other devices connected via ethernet or wifi, tested the devices and cables on a friends 1gb VM connection and they receive pretty much the max speed (960). My own router (AX6100 = 2 * AX92u) also shows the same behaviour when using it's inbuilt speed test. 

2. The SH4 seems to be randomly rebooting itself, and putting itself back into router mode, I note that when this happens the assigned public IP address changes ?

I've had these issues since installation, looking for anyone else who has experienced similar?

Re: 1GB/SH4 issues

The ASUS routers do not have enough CPU power to run a Speedtest for anything over 500Mbps.

Im assuming your VM hub is in Modem Mode and not still in Router Mode?

Not that I don’t believe you but do you have any documentation for that ?

That likely explains the slow speeds then.

The lower spec routers can’t do that. Check SNBForums for confirmation

I was responding to your generic comment on ASUS routers!

Re: 1GB/SH4 issues

So, to clarify the laptops connected individually via ethernet also display the same behaviour when the SH4 is in router mode 300 -550 speeds fl same laptops, cables etc on a friends 1gb VM connection have no issues.

When testing my own AX92U equipment the SH4 was in modem mode.
