Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.1

Yesterday, I replaced a FIOS Quantum router with an Archer AX6000.  My 5GHz wireless speeds have dropped from about 400Mbps up/down to about 300down/200up.  I have FIOS Gigabit internet and am measuring speeds with the Speettest app on my iPhone XR.  I expected speeds to be at least the same with the new router and when I get an AX device, I would hope those speeds would be even higher. 

 

Anyone else have experience replacing a Quantum router with an AX6000?  I feel like returning this router, because I basically wasted $300 to get lower speeds.

Try the following:

 

-Set the application priority to standard (Advanced > QoS > Application Priority)

-Set the QoS speed manually to 1000 Mbps for up and down (Advanced > QoS, top of menu)
-Disable any device priority (Advanced > QoS > Device Priority)
-Disable HomeCare features (Advanced > Security > Antivirus)

@Tony Thanks so much for the information. I went from 110 mps on my iPhone 11 to 491 mps now. Thanks again.

FYI These same steps worked on my AX50. 

 

Wired speeds on Verizon FIOS 1GB went from around 200MBPS  up to 650+MBPS just by tweaking the QoS configuration.  

 

Thank you!
