Archer vr2600 speedtest lower than Plusnet Hub 1 (Model selestion doesnt have VR2600 as a choice)
I purchased a TPlink VR2600 with the intention of it replacing my Hub 1 and converting the Hub 1 to an AP to cover rest of flat. I'm on a very tight budget & the VR2600 fitted specs I needed the best.
Set up went OK, however Ive done repeated speed tests, Hub 1 reports around 30 MBps download on Ethernet & Wifi but VR2600 is only reporting around 7MBps or 8MBps down on wired and wifi. Both however are consistant with Upload speed at around 8-9 MBps.
I've been through the settings several times and cant see any difference except choosing in TPlink UI between xDSL modem mode and Wifi modem Mode. Documentation suggests leaving on xDSL.
A couple of quirks I have noticed. Some websites struggle to load with messages like ERR_CONNECTION_CLOSED On the VR2600 I can't play youtube links on VLC & facebook particularly seems to have trouble resolving. I've also tried using Psiphon (www.psiphon3.com) and the ERR_CONNECTION hasnt shown itself. I've done speedtests which also replicate previously mentioned Down & Up speeds.
I'm on standard fibre plan.
Does anyone please have any suggestions?
