DSL-AC68U Performance


[link to this post]
 
I wanted a one box solution with faster wireless and was a bit dubious about buying this after reading lots of stories about VDSL problems and not knowing how much they had been fixed with firmware updates.

Had it for a couple of months now and posting stats as a reference for others. I am very close (about 80m) to the cabinet.

DSL Firmware Version 1.0.3.2
DSL Driver Version FwVer:5.5.1.135_A_A60901 HwVer:T14.F7_0.2
DSL Link Status up
DSL Uptime 42 days 10 hours 17 minute(s) 40 seconds
DSL modulation ITU G.993.2(VDSL2)
ANNEX Mode ANNEX A
Current Profile 17a
TCM(Trellis Coded Modulation) 1
Line Stats Downstream Upstream
SNR 6.3 dB 13.0 dB
Line Attenuation 7.2 dB 0.1 dB
Path Mode FastPath FastPath
Interleave Depth 1 1
Data Rate 79999 kbps 20000 kbps
MAX Rate 96472 31104
POWER 11.5 dbm -1.6 dbm
CRC 11982 21

Basically it has been rock solid with 12k CRC errors in 42 days of uptime.

Thanks for posting - how's the wireless performance?

I'm looking to upgrade to an 802.11ac capable modem router, but this one has been around for a while.

Not great in my opinion. I've disable wifi on the Asus and set up a draytek 910c access point. It's double the wifi speed.

With the Asus I got 19meg on a speed test using wifi, now I get the full 38 meg.

I am happy with it but it is the first ac wifi I have had so don't have a useful comparison.

Using https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pz... on a Galaxy tab s with a wired PC server I get between 200 and 280Mb/s depending on where in the house it is. The tab s at best reports a 866Mb/s connection (5GHz obviously).

At 2.4GHz on the tab s speeds are about halved and a bit more erratic probably due to interference.
