Any Asus RT N-12HP user? Need help

So basically I got a Asus RT N 12, non HP.

Theoretical: 300Mbps
So far on a M1 100MBps fiber which averages 96-105Mbps, only get 40Mbps out of the box. So weak.

My DIR 655 HW A4 (Old but epic speeds compared to latest B1/2 etc) gets me my full 100Mbps I subscribed.

Note: At all times with 40Mhz channel width I was able to achieve 300Mbps theoretical via Windows 7 Zero Configuration Utility.


So I optimised settings as I suspect the router shouldn't be hitting the ceiling on the including:
Spoiler!


My last resort since I can't even get 100Mbps to replace my dieing 4 year old DLink DIR 655 A4 that was able to do 100+Mbps real speed, was to call the hotline.

Hotline advice was that this router's actual capability was ~70Mbps which I didn't get.

Since its within 1 for 1 exchange, I was hinted that RT-N12HP was able to do ~110Mbps ish in the real world. I want to know if the tech's claim is true.

If anyone has a 100Mbps+ fiber together with a Asus RT-N12HP can you please do me a favour?
-Run your router on 40Mhz channel width
-Disable QOS
-Set to N only
-Your wireless adapter via device manager, make sure channel width is Auto or 20/40/60Mhz because default for most wireless adapters are 20Mhz. In this way, you can achieve your max throughput via the wireless adapter

The main question again: Does the Asus RT-N12 HP achieve a real world speed of ~100MBps? I want to work out an exchange with Courts because the buy wasn't satisfactory and far from what I was told.

Thanks if you can help!

Tried using direct LAN to your PC?? What is the speed?
Tested using WiFi Inspector to see if WiFi is jammed???
Changed to 5Ghz channel instead???

These are mitigating factors.
Go to my blog (myrepublic-kb.blogspot.sg) ...and download from there.....
Post out your WiFi Inspector findings
Test using Speedtest.singnet.com.sg

I don't think it's router..but service problem with the Black Box

Definitely not the black box, direct connection via LAN is full 100Mbps. Same thing applies to the old DIR 655, its able to receive and transmit full speed from the black box.

Singnet speedtest is even worse, 34Mbps

I'm an InSSIDer 3 user and it tells the same performance stats as wifi inspector so anyway signal is -25 to -26 stable, the only user in the channel as mentioned earlier

No 5Ghz (2.4Ghz only router) for range reasons and that 5GHz penetrates walls a lot poorer than 2.4GHz but no interference anyway.

Now I've hopped over back to the old dlink in the same location
--35 to -40
-Channels bonded properly too, empty channel 13+9 (300Mbps theoretical)
-Speedtest on singnet site 82Mbps ish, healthy
-Speedtest on viewquest ookla, same old 100Mbps (what I used to keep my variables consistent on the last post)

Any other suggestions and yes if you noticed I know how to optimise the settings but I may/may not have missed a key setting or 2, thanks for double checking so far.

Btw do you have a N12 or N12HP and what are the real world speeds you're getting?

Thanks again

Hi there, same problem here. I just got myself a RT-N12HP router very recently and I am on 100mbps cable broadband. On speed test, the max speed i can get is 70~ mbps and only on very rare few occasions. Usually the speed is around 40-50mbps on an average. I have tried the setting you posted here and I got the same result as before.
Hope this helps.

Hey Zechs thanks for posting and telling me some realistic results! They help.

Meanwhile, is your laptop or Network card theoretical speed at probably 240Mbps to 300Mbps? AFAIK on the router side its probably the best settings alrdy. (I am unfamiliar with Asus routers though)

If it is an Intel based card that's probably from a 1-3 years old laptop you can try see if the channel width settings are optimal.
-search for "device manager"
-Network Adapters
-Intel Centrino Wireless N-XXXX
-Advanced
-Channel width for band 2.4
-Change from default 20Mhz to auto.

Cannot force 40Mhz on Intel Network cards because the organisation that comes up with Wi-Fi standards don't want people to hog too many channels and I believe Intel wants to be compliant.

Router got exceptional cases, wanna give power users more control etc.. Anyway, Intel network cards monkey see monkey do. If your router says run on 40Mhz, your "auto" on the Intel card should also follow and run 40Mhz to give you 150+150Mbps in theory.

Mind checking this out pleaseeee?

The router is underwhelming compared to my DIR 655 A4 so far.

My network adapter is Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 AGN. I believe this is capable of 300mbps. Even my wireless network connection status shows that it is connected on 300.0Mbps. My setting is exactly the same as what you stated here.

Speedtest - still hovers around 40-50 mbps most of the time.

Wow that blows from what I expected .


Even with an E1200 Linksys lying around I was able to get 65Mbps but slightly lower with DDWRT. This is a dirt cheap router but the bad point is the pior range.

Guess the claims by the tech wasn't that truthful, intended or not. I don't think exchanging and topping up will help me.

Your post was some valuable info ty.

You can buy 1 and try try (on a serious note, you probably will experience 59Mbps max so its crap).

In the meantime, still hunting for a decent router on 2.4ghz... If its a dual band I'll disable 5ghz

You serious you want to use RT-N12 for fiber??? 0.0 the WAN is not even Gigabit how you get full fiber speed. Don't blame a product sucks when there is no knowledge in the user (not referring to you).

Over 2.4- NO. Even on ANY ROUTER.
