Re: Intermittent download speeds

You might want to check and see if there is a firmware update for your router, personally I use an Asus RT-AC68U, running Merlin 3rd party firmware there are others here that use Asus routers also.

Asus Routers Work pretty great. Belkin is pretty good too (I think)

Hey Charles, you sure have been scarce lately. I'm on 378.56_beta2 and running well.

I lose nothing with a HughesNet connection on my Asus router. The modem will never keep up with it. Have to realize the best throughput on HughesNet is maybe 50 Mbps and most never see that. The router laughs at that.

My routers laugh too, it makes me sad. The reason behind getting a better router was to get better signal. I know that even my 10year old router can work with hughesnet no problem. But those new routers have some pretty awesome wireless range.

Yep, my laptop is on 5Ghz and wife's tablet is on 2.4, we do what we want.

Even though my printer is 2.4 and I'm on 5, able to connect to it just fine and print. Wonderful !
