All,

 

I have FiOS gigabit service with a Verizon Wifi 6 router (G3100).  My wired/ethernet speed is 940/800 and frequently comes out a little higher than that on speed tests.  I have an Asus ROG Maximus XI wifi mobo with an integrated AC 9560 160 MHz wifi (802.11 ac).  I was getting 390-405 down and ~330 up with the onboard wifi.  I purchased the TP-Link TX50e assuming I would get even better wifi speeds than what was oboard my Asus mobo.  Not the case at all.  I disabled the onboard AC9560 and enable the TX50e (which shows as an AX200 for some reason).  Anyway, I now get slower wifi speeds with this wifi 6 (about 190-250 down and 300 up).  Very strange, I expected it to be at least the same, if not faster.  I am thinking of returning the TX50e and just using my onboard wifi.  Any thoughts?  Are there any settings I can change to increase the speed with this TP-Link adapter???

 

Thanks.

There are recent drivers released by the chipset manufacturer here:

 

Driver: link

 

Bluethooth Driver: link

 

It is also recommended to have the PCIe card installing on a x1 slot rather than a x16 slot.

@ACon I have the exact same problem and you're not alone. I'm getting roughly half the speed I should be getting, despite installing all the latest drivers.

@thundernyan same here.  Do I ditch this router?

Model: Archer TX50E

Firmware Version: 22.20.0.6

 

Same issue here.  I'm pairing the TX50E with a Netgear CAX80 with Cox Gigablast (up to 940 Mbps).  The TX50E connects fine to the 2.4ghz, but struggles to connect to the 5ghz.  When it does connect, it drops frequently and only reaches <5 Mpbs speeds.  I know it's not Cox because all my other devices that connect to 5ghz reach 500+ Mbps consistently.
