I am currently using a Asus RT-AC68u with slingshot gig plan.

 

I was also having the same speed issue as you on that router however once i disabled all the port forwarding the flatmate has setup then it came right 

 

2ms pings now and about 850 down, 400 / 500 up

I'm in Dunedin. Hopefully it's a settings issue and don't need a new router.

If you're based in Wellington I have a HG659 you can borrow to just test things out.

Hey Tripp. What are your settings on the Asus router. I just picked one up for cheap. Is your Ethernet plugged into the wan port from the ONT?

Okay i just splurged and bought the Asus RT-AC68U

 

 

 

As soon as i connected it, i have instantly got speeds of between 900-950 down and 450-500 up speeds. Ill never buy another Dlink product. It was the second unit that i received after sending the first one back due to being faulty. Even after the latest firmware and restoring multiple times it just would not work properly.

 

 

 

At least its solved now. Thanks for all the help everyone that commented.

Hey Tripp. Can you let me know what settings you have under Wap and iptv under lan settings? are you consistently getting those speeds with this Asus router?

I'm finding that starting fresh gives good speeds but upon configuring stuff speeds start to slow a little. Looking for the proper way to set it up

Go grab Advanced Tomato for it and flash it - https://advancedtomato.com/downloads/router/rt-ac68u

 

Enable CTF, VLAN tagging and all that jazz and you'll be set (and Advanced Tomato is so much better than the Asus firmware).

It must be a configuration issue because speed tests now show 250 down and about 450 upload speeds with the Asus. What the hell am I configuring wrong ?

Did you set up Advanced Tomato? If not, give that a shot.
