Re: upgrade to VVIP from VIP?

If your not using a hub 3 from virgin these speeds can’t be guaranteed

But than why as other people on v.vip package reached over 500Mb Personally I think it’s my asus router... still testing

What model is it?

Some features like QoS, Web History, AI Protection, will disable Hardware Acceleration and on the older/budget models the processors won't be able to handle such high speeds without it.

Re: upgrade to VVIP from VIP?

QOS has always been off, just turned off web history and I think I have nat acceleration on.

Router incorporates Broadcom's new BCM4709 Wi-Fi chipset, the cornerstone of which is a 1GHz, dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor with 802.11ac support, theoretically up to 1.3Gbps. The chipset also offers accelerated 802.11n data rates of up to 600Mbps, thanks to Broadcom's proprietary TurboQAM technology.

Re: upgrade to VVIP from VIP?

Testing on 2 devices

an iPhone XS max ( don’t know the specs)

and a 6 year old Samsung laptop i3, 6GB of RAM, 1GB Ethernet. Used both own cat 6 cable and the white cat 6 that comes with the tivo  v6’s

when the kids back to school tomorrow I’ll test again with hub 3 in router mode, modem mode but directly to the laptop and resetting my asus router back to factory settings with stock firmware. Haven’t done that yet as it’s not a 5 minute job and I can’t be dealing with “why’s it off” “how long’s it going to be” 😏 😡
