I got a new Asus RT-N16 and put TomatoUSB (Teaman) on it tonight and I'm very happy with it except for one problem: the bandwidth is very flaky. I have a 25/5 connection, but running speedtest.net at various times shows the download speed often topping out at 8 Mbps. I'm coming from a 1st gen Apple Airport Extreme, and I didn't have this problem. Nearly every time I ran speedtest, I would get 25 Mbps down. There are two connected machines, one Linux machine through ethernet and one Mac though 802.11n, and they're both about as slow. I fiddled with the QoS settings a bit but nothing really helped, although I admit to not really knowing what I was doing. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
disable QoS, disable BW Limiter and test now. Did you erase NVRAM after flash Tomato. Teaman`s builds are the same as Toastman`s. I have 30/2 connection and i`m always have 30/2Mbps in tests (wired and wireless).
I`m using to test speedtest.net or just download big file ie: http://noc.gts.pl/100mb.gts
Result you will get in MB/s well multiply the result by 8 to get Mbps. If you have 25Mbps DL, you should get about 3,1MB/s speed of download.
Thanks for the advice. QoS is off, the bandwidth limiter is off too, and I erased the NVRAM immediately after the TomatoUSB install. I still can't get more than about 900 KBps, if that. Downloading that big file results in the same results as speedtest. My issue seems similar to h t t p://tomatousb . o r g/forum/t-265068, which I don't see any kind of resolution too, sadly.
I too, am seeing this with an RT-N66U.
I have 28/1 internet. Without the Router in place, I can usually achieve 3-4MBps directly connected to the router. With Tomato(Shibby) on the router, I'm barely seeing 500KB.
no way. I have RT-N66u with my tomato too. i have 24/2Mbps of internet speed. I am able to get 3MB/s from LAN or wifi 2,4GHz/5GHz. Also build-in transmission can get 3MB/s when i`m downloading some files.
