Hey guys newbie here.

Recently got Skinny 200 Fibre. The supplied Huawei router is only pulling roughly 30mb via wireless.

Anyhow I have an Asus DSL AC68U that I used to run VDSL (Flip Internet) through and was getting way better d/u rates. I am wanting to config my Asus but to be honest I do not know even where to start.

Has any one on here connected the same router to Skinny Fibre? If so how?

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

The Huawei routers do much higher speeds over Wi-Fi depending on the environment
