Speedtest / fast.com (focused on bandwidth) should get about 400mbps with 5ghz, 80mhz wide channel on your iphone 2x2 client (in a medium sized room). For 2.4ghz 20mhz wide channel (2009, wireless g / wifi 3?) you should expect mid 20’s. On your iphone you’ll get wireless speed on 2.4ghz of up to 100-150mbps under ideal conditions (I would forget the 2.4ghz network with your iphone and strictly use 5ghz)
Dslreports is latency focused (doesn’t provide the best bandwidth measure due to limited servers) and requires some tweaking / repeat testing.
Post some of your test results. Here is a random mid morning 5ghz iphone measurement:
Beyond wifi config multiple people tweak with CPU parameters depending on their use. A simple way to get max performance is to set the CPU to the max frequency (1.7ghz) if your priority is max speed (see if this helps, just copy paste the whole blob in, to reverse it you can restart your router or replace the performance with ondemand in the command to revert to default).
With default openwrt you don’t have access to the two NSS CPUs like proprietary OEM drivers do. To get OEM-like speeds you need these additional CPUs. There is a ton work on the drivers and several versions of drivers are available to advanced users that want to compile their own firmware:
Yea not sure what to do..
My main objective is to play ps4 wired with minimal lag / best latency. For some reason it is bad even wired from router in port 1 and has a moderate 2 not open connection. Of course works amazing from modem. I can deal with 170mb WiFi but I pay for 1g. Should I get another router? Do you think the arris 3.1 8200 is causing issues? All the snr and power levels are perfect according to xfinity and arris.
Talked to arris and xfinity
The upload light on the modem isn’t blue like the download.. even though I get good upload speeds at what I pay for.. SNR and power levels are great According to arris
I asked xfinity to remove boot files and reactivate them.. they did all the tests they said they could.. having a tech come out to check outside??
I do not think these are compatible. Change piece_of_cake.qos to any of the simple ones (experiment).
This router is not powerful enough to shape in both directions, so change this to 0 to not shape the downloads.
Some more changes I would suggest are below, but do not expect miracles. I am getting over 340Mbps on 5GHz wireless (the max link speed), but both cores are over 80% utilized. That is the speed in either direction; it tops out at ~400Mbps combined.
