Hello, I am having a really hard time with my new Asus gt ax6000. My old mesh node died so i decide to buy the ax6000 and turn my old ax88u into node.
I setup everything and when i speedtest i was only receiving about 400-550, so i searched the forums and tried some config settings. After that my speed became max 100mbs, so i changed it all back and stayed at 100mbps tops. The setting i played with was bandwidth, channels, agile, no mu mimo, no beamforming etc.
Decided the factory reset and start again. Now I'm receiving 600-700mbps, better than before but still not up to par. thought of changing 1 setting a time and try again, first setting changed no beam forming. BOOM down to 80-100mbps, this makes no sense so i changed back speed stays the same.
I am at the point now where i think this router is a dud because how can 1 setting destroy my wireless speeds even when set back.
Some info as to why i am soo confused. i have 1.5gbs isp service, the router internal speed test gets 1.6-1.8gbps. My node is hardwired and i have a computer hardwired which receiving max 1gbps because port limitation on ax88u. When i am downstairs testing wireless from my phone on node i received 800-880mbps, same phone upstairs on new router 100mbs. I am so confused i have a s21 which is wifi 6 and speeds are better on my old ax88u standing same distances? i honestly thought with the 2.5gbs port and receiving full service i would be able to get something over 1gbs at least.
Any suggestion and help is much appreciated I'm at the point i might return because this honestly seems like its a dud router.
