SSE Fibre with ASUS DSL-AC68U


[link to this post]
 
Good afternoon

I have recently started using an Asus DSL-AC68U modem with my SSE Fibre Broadband service as a direct replacement for the supplied Technicolour TG589vac and separate Openreach modem. I've got it working after a bit of tinkering, however I'm only achieving 57Mbps downstream, whereas with the Technicolour+BT Modem I had approx 66Mbps.

There are a lot of options in the Asus, and I wonder if anyone could advise please on correct settings, or perhaps other possible causes of my drop in speed.

Kind regards, David

Is the 57 Mbps the downstream sync speed? Or a speed test result?

Some devices perform better on different lines, and it is an expensive game sometimes to figure it out.

Generally on the connection speed side, so long as you have a VDSL2 sync you've got the settings correct.

Hello Andrew

Thanks for your reply. I agree, I'm a little disappointed with a reduced speed - it wasn't exactly the desired outcome from the new router purchase!

It's a speed test result, from http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html

In settings, I have a drop down field called "DSL Modulation". It's currently set to "Auto sync-up", but I could change it to VDSL2 or VDSL2+, if you think it might help?

BR, David

Sorry - my mistake - there isn't a VDSL2+ option. Just "VDSL". I guess I should select this rather than "Auto Sync-Up"?

No such thing, at least in the UK, as VDSL2+. All Openreach FTTC is VDSL2.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Are you connected to a Huawei cabinet? The drop may be due to G.INP being turned off.

Thanks for the responses. I've now reconnected the Openreach modem, and using the Asus as a router only. My speeds are now back up to approx 65Mbps. So it seems to be an issue with the Modem in the Asus? Are there any 'tweaks' to make it perform more like the openreach one?

Sorry for the confusion re VDSL. There definitely ISN'T a VDSL2+ option!

I'm not sure if I'm connected to a Huawei cabinet, how do you tell?

Ta. That's definitely the firmware I'm running - I upgraded it last week. I can't see anything which relates to Huawei though - is it in some log file somewhere?
