In practice, a well made cat 5e cable can support 10Gbps speeds at a short distance.

most ethernet cables you buy from a store/online are not even up to specifications e.g using copper clad aluminum instead of solid copper for the cables and in the case of those flat ethernet cables, no shielding, no cable twist to prevent crosstalk etc

I still go challenger buy $28 x 2 pcs. 1 pc to connect modem anothee to router. Waste money close to 400 buck see no difference from my old Asus router my heart pain.

think on the bright side, you got it cheap from m1 at subsidised rate, it's just your settings problem, from what I see.

what phone are you using, what settings are you using for your 5ghz?
give some more info, then can help you ;)

Screenshot your 5ghz settings with your password masked, we can see if any improvements can fibre in the settings.

And the test was done in close proximity to the router ?

anyone of you encounter the internet led turn red out of sudden? encountered quite few times, had to reboot router to resolve.
had changed the cable from ONT to router wan, also tested ONT directly to laptop to test internet also working. just the internet went off in the router.

Lucky177 04-07-2019 02:08 PM

Maybe try update to latest firmware and do a reboot?

Could be a sign that your router going to uplorry if it is frequent. Call your ISP for replacement.

I would agree there are always some black sheep. Most stores/online could still be trusted.

Cat5e is not meant to support more the 1Gbps. If you manage to make it works for a 10Gbps connection, good for you.

Don't teach chewren bad.
You may flash your router but the firmware of the ONT is a NO Go.

I bought 3 different cat5e/6 ethernet cables from challenger and all 3 were copper clad aluminum cables instead of solid copper cables. I cut the first cable into several 10cm cables to connect devices to my switch and it works fine for that use case. However the 2nd cable can't power my PoE AP properly and the 3rd would constantly drop connections to my PC. I replaced the last 2 ethernet cables with in spec ones from sim lim square and my issues were solved.

If all you do is connect your pc to your router, any cheap cable will work fine unless the length is long.

For PoE and longer runs, those cheap cables that are not made up to spec can't work reliably

I don't think you can modify the firmware on the ONT even if you tried. Those things are locked down by the ISP

How long were your cable when it gave you problem?

They are 20m

Lucky177 06-07-2019 07:58 PM

Xaiobai asked any setting can do within the router...

Spectral said internet went off in the router.

So I thought was talking about the router for both cases. Hence, my suggestion about the update was actually referring to the router. Not ONT. Sorry if I ever misinterpreted and didn’t make myself clear enough.

Had the same issue too, happen once every few days. Now I set my router to auto reboot once every 2 days. So far looks ok.

It does look like a firmware bug.

I'm using Netgear orbi mesh, wondering if this can cover a 4room hdb? Last time my ac68u didn't manage to reach the master bedroom
