(1) What is Ethernet cable ?
(2) How long is the run ?

I'd also make sure it is not a crossover cable / patch cable.


You might find this link helpful for what is the Ethernet cable your using and should you be using something else.

Yeah, I would at least give it a try, start from start with it and just remember is does policy based routing which is little different to the Asus firmware.

Save your config current firmware, in case you decide to fall back to Asus firmware, just dont use that config with Merlin.

Let us know how it goes, I would be most interested.

When I purchase the gt-ax11000 it was on the 384 firmware version and when I try the firmware automatic button it wouldn't work so I manually download the latest firmware and install it, so I decide to roll back to the 384 version and than I was able to use the automatic update button the router brought the firmware version back to the latest and that seem to have fix my problem , now I get proper wire speed thank for the help
