ASUS N55U Router
I am using:
This is the latest Beta firmware direct from ASUS that allows you to use one of the N55U's ethernet ports as an EWAN port. Out of the box, it is just an ADSL router.
Was looking thought plusnet forums and saw that MTU AND MRU should be set to 1492. I initially had them different and was getting poor speeds with my ASUS compared to the supploed Technicolor. So...changed and got this result with the N55U:
This is the result with my Plusnet supplied Techniclor, as you can see the upload is higher & my ping is lower than with my N55U:

So, I have my download speed on par, but my upload and ping is worse, perhaps another setting I've overlooked an need to change?
This is what I have on the main WAN page:

The Wi-Fi of my router seems quite poor compared to the excellent performance suggested in the reviews. Is it right that I get MAX 65mbps on all my devices? (when sat right next to the router).
Devices include Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, Xperia Play, Xperia ARC, Xperia U and an Iphone 3GS, as well as 2 Sky on demand wireless boxes.
The wireless signal is max 65mbps and deteriorates dramatically with distance, it seriously under performs compared to the supplied technicolor. For example, in the upstairs bedrooms, with the Technicolor, I get around 19mbps, but with the N55U, I am lucky to get 5mbps...and sometimes even dropouts. Surely this isn't right? I expected a strong Wi-FI signal of 150mbps with this router? No?
Thank you for your help.
