Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.0.1

Since I got the TL-R605 1.0 (firmware 1.0.1) connected it all works like a charm with the OC200 (v 4.3.5) and 4 EAP225 3.0 (firmware 5.0.3)

although I would like to put in a feature request(s) for the Speedtest feature:


1) Schedule time windows for speedtest

Currently you can choose to run every x hrs to run the test. It would be nice if you can select a time window when it should happen. This way you can perform it outside business hours to have a more accurate test, where the test doesn't have to compete with the day-to-day traffic. 

2) Other speedtest providers

would be nice if you can define other speedtest providers like for example fast.com, speed.cloudlfare.com. And maybe also the possibility to configure your own iperf (iperf.fr) server. 

3) manual run speedtest

An initial speedtest run can be schedule via the interface. Would be nice to be able to do that after that as well. Under the bandwidth options there is a feature to do so, but that measurement isn't adopted in the speed overview. 



And set the official bandwith speed as it should be according to your contract.

Hope it's clear... if not please let me know 


PS - Not sure if this is the right location for this post.

It would be nice to just have the ability to manually set your up/down bandwidth instead of relying on any given speedtest provider. On a busy network, a single speedtest from the router is actually pretty silly to show total available bandwidth since other devices are actually utilizing the same line... Just give the option to manually set total UP/DOWN bandwidth and then we can see what is really being utilized based on ALL of the devices connected to the router.
