Maybe that's the maximum your client can do on 5GHz?
On my WDR4300, i had up to (if i remember correct) 667 MBit with my notebook. But i haven't used this router for at least 3 years, so i might be wrong.

what i insert in browse openwrt or stock? i tryed downloaded file have 0 bytes size

As it states at top of page

Use this tool to convert a TP-Link stock firmware to an OpenWrt-compatible sysupgrade file.
This is useful in case you want to return to a stock firmware from OpenWrt.

No no even is stock tplink was maximum 40 wide and 150mbps, looks like i buy something low rate :frowning:

yes ok i put in tplink stock

What device are you using to test the wifi speed?
My old smartphone can only do 150Mbit/s max. on both 2,4 and 5 GHz.
My notebook can do up to 866 MBit/s on either band.
You should check this first, before you randomly switch firmware on the router.
