Hi everyone. I have a Nighthawk AC2300 that has been nothing but trouble since day 1. I've resolved the intermittent Wi-Fi drops, but my Internet speed is still extremely low. I have a 1Gb Verizon FIOS line that i am getting ~100Mbps up and down. When I bypass the router and connect directly to the ONT I get ~980Mbps up/down.
To mitigate this issue, I have done the following:
1) Upgraded Netgear firmware to latest and greatest with no change
2) Uninstalled and reset, upgraded to DD-WRT v3.0-r44406 std (09/18/20)
3) Disabled QOS
4) Changed MTU several times (currently at 1468)
Ive searched the forums but haven't found anything that has helped. My ONT is I-211M-L.
Any help is appreciated, I spent 3 weeks on the WI-FI before stabilizing that with the dd-wrt firmware.
Yeah, I'm wondering if I should just return this thing. It dropped Wi-Fi every day for every single device in the house. Laptops, tvs, phones etc. Brutal. We have 2 adults here trying to work and a kid doing remote schooling.
EDIT: Good question... thats Wi-Fi from my workstation with AC on the 5Ghz wlan. I will plug directly in with a laptop and report back. I did that with the original firmware and there wasnt much difference, but forgot to do that with this upgrade.
