My ISP has just increased to 200Mbps. I have a r7000 and I am getting 134 Mbps. I believe it is disclosed that a r7000 on DDWRT does not get as much speed as stock, but is safer.

I have failed to get ipv6 to work.

It is not that important to realize the speed, just wondering if there is a fix I am unaware of.

Also, what router would be as reliable as the r7000 if I wanted to upgrade and use DD-WRT.

Thanks.

DDWRT firmware prefers for QOS or quality of data transmit, it is good for game and many clients on a router with limited data speed transmit. if you want NAT or max data transmit then asus merlin FW is suitabled about in term of compatible; ddwrt FW is likely DSL and asus merlin is looklike cable internet. so the best way then set 2 routers, one for game with ddwrt FW and one for video with asus-merlin FW.

Total B.S.

R7000 will run 200Mb no sweat. I have Spectrum running stable at ~235Mb which is their 200Mb package including overprovisioning.

there must be something wrong with your settings or ISP modem....
R7000 can cap around 400Mbit ish (no VPN, no SFE, no QoS)....
on ipv6 even up to 800Mbit...
also try turning SFE or update to a new Kong build...
as well try to restart your DSL modem and R700 and wait

R7800 is reliable router for high speeds...

My R6400 which is the slower brother of the R7000 gets 250 Mb/s without SFE and 550 Mb/s with SFE, so it looks like there is something wrong with either your testing or your setup.

Before we had SFE, stock and Merlin could be faster because they had CTF which is more or less the same as SFE.
So now all can be equally fast Smile

I am running DD-WRT v3.0-r36410 std - 07/28/18 on my Netgear R7000 with Comcast as my ISP. While Wireless Virtual Interfaces do not seem to work on this release for my use case, all other features seemed to work fine. My contract with Comcast is for residential broadband, 250 Mbits download speed. I regularly exceed that level. I have IPv6 set up and running on my router.

Below is my IPv6 configuration

Thanks. I will have to do some testing. And try ipv6 again!

is it ok to have the "blanks"
assigned router prefix and
router ipv6 address?
