So just some information on my setup.
I live in an apartment that was already setup with a 'smart home hub', meaning every room has ethernet ports that connects to a hub in the closet.
So my setup is, in the Living Room I have a modem that connects to the wall, and the router connects to that modem. Router is an Asus N56U.
The apartment has bad wifi coverage so I got the Deco M5 system.
I have 1 Deco in the bedroom and another in the Office. Wifi problems fixed. However my issue is with wired connections.
I wanted to use Virtual Desktop in the office on my Oculus Quest, however it said my PC wasn't using a wired gigabit connection. My PC is connected right into a wall port so it should connect right to the router.
I asked around on the Virtual Desktop Discord and they said to try plug the PC right into the Deco.
I had tried this before but ran into a lot of issues, it was like the Deco replaced my main router and caused internet issues so I put the Deco into AP mode.
When my PC is wired into the wall directly my speed test result shows download speed is 70-75mbps, and it goes straight to that high speed.
When I plugged the PC into the Deco M5 my speed test results go from 20-60mbps, usually around 20-35, and if it does reach 60mbps it climbs very slowly.
I have no idea why this would be the case. My bedroom Deco was the main one, I tried setting the Office one as the main one but its the same result.
Anybody have any ideas why the Deco would limit my wired connection?
The Deco is also wired into the wall so I thought it would just allow the PC to pass through and get the same speed.
I would ideally like to have the PC wired into the Deco as it fixes the gigabit internet issue on Virtual Desktop.
Appreciate any replies!
