Other than s10, those non wifi6 devices..what's the avg wifi speed?
I never did much optimization so the usual devices speed range about 100-200mbps for upload/download.

so you enable HE after installing the latest firmware or disable to get the high wifi speed on your s10?

I had enable HE before firmware update and the speed is as normal around 200mbps which kinda make me disappointed coz I hyping for blazing speed.


Then when there was a new firmware update and when I installed it woah lah ! The speed is damn shiok ahahaha !

Ax88u as router, 2 x 5300 as nodes. With HE disable, my iphone wifi speed can hit 600Mbps up 600 Mbps down on 1 Gbps plan.
If i enable HE, straight drop to less than 200Mbps.
actually i thinking Ax88u as node since wifi6 haha

Fixed it. Have to power off and on the router again. On router page rebooting or re-enabling HE frame cannot work. Speed stuck at miserable 286mbps unless off the whole router.
Phew ! Heng can get back the speed but yah the new wifi6 still need allot improvement.

New feature for AX router to enable high speed data transfer which is wifi6 speed. But some equipment and device may be affected by the new feature which may slow the speed instead. Thus got this feature to enable and disable.

Ran a test on other devices.
My S8 getting good speed as well.
428mbps link rate in master bedroom.
648mbps link rate in living room.
This new AX88U router is pretty impressive.

My old AC88U hardly get anything close to 400mbps on 5G.
300-400 is on very good days.

I got the ax11000u. Not much difference with this ax88u in terms of speed but the range is better.
Just some tips in case some of you guys find ur wifi speed slow or your printer have a hard time getting connected.. Disable smart band steering and make sure 2.4ghz is on 20mhz only. Make sure AX is off and also don’t turn on DFS channel.
