So I've recently moved house and had a g.fast line put in. The BT Smart Hub 2 I was given was hitting the full 160mbps as expected of the line but I was unhappy with the lack of router customisation or performance on online gaming. I managed to get a ZT Link MT992 modem from a BT Openreach engineer so I could use my Asus RT-AC86U that I used in my old house but I'm only getting a maximum of 140mbps.
Is this a problem with the ZT Link MT992 not being as good as the BT Smart Hub 2 (as a modem) or have I misconfigured something in my Asus RT-AC86U? I haven't altered any of the default WAN settings on the Asus RT-AC86U apart from entering the standard WAN username and password for BT, in PPPOE mode.
Any help or advice on how I can get the full 160mbps from my Asus RT-AC86U would be much appreciated. Thanks.
Forgot to add, on the MT992 the DSL light is always lit but the Internet light isn't. Is this normal?
I've switched back to the BT Smart Hub 2 for now as my kids have a meltdown if there's any downtime, so could anyone offer any advice on optimum WAN settings for the Asus RT-AC86U please? Or should be default do the job?
I have just put an MT992 in front of my Unifi USG. I can get ipv4 pppoe working fine using the standard credentials, but ipv6 is another matter. The smart hub 2 I switched out got ipv6 no problem.
I'm on g.fast 330/50.
There is no interface for the MT992, it's just plug and play and I'm getting full speed.
