Is this one off? You can try a bit later.

If this persists then first check your router and cable. You can connect your PC directly to the ONT to carry out speedtest. If that also gives the same speed, contact Starhub for potential ONT problem.

Quite some M1 users report issues as well but I can see mostly as user problem.

No. Seems to be like that for like maybe last 1 month liao.

Then check your router or cable first. Then contact Starhub if your router and cable are not the issue. Sometimes it is due to ONT issue, sometimes it is due to the fibre cable issue.

Starhub got promotion now for new subscribers (effective price is S$39.33 with two Nokia Beacon 1 units). For existing subscribers, you may need to contact Starhub to get similar deals (say S$39.9 per month with one of two units of the Nokia Beacon 1 which you can sell for a bit of money).

What is the issue? I am also using this same route. No issue at all.

Found the issue liao.

NAT Acceleration must be turned ON.

The reason why I disabled "NAT Acceleration" is because I am using the "Scheduling" function on this router to set time that internet are disabled for certain devices to control my kid's screen time. But it wasn't working very well.

I read on :


That it will work better with NAT Acceleration turned OFF. I tried but it doesn't seems to help much. Seriously, I am very disappointed with Asus, such a simple function, they can't get it right.

IIRC, the one on Xiaomi router works very well. I may go back to Xiaomi AX3600/6000 router.

I believe there is a NetLink Trust maintenance in the west. I received a message from Singtel myself but I did not notice any issue as it is from 1am to 6am and the disruption is supposed to be 15 to 30 minutes.

Surprised to read that Netlink Trust is the one doing such maintenance.

Do you really need 2Gbps? Starhub 2Gbps is a dual 1Gbps plan, it is mainly meant for people who need two networks. If you want to save money, you can downgrade to M1 500Mbps and buy a better router yourself.

And no point to chnage just because of a free router. Starhub 1Gbps plan gives a free Nokia Beacon 1 router which you can only sell for around S$40 or less.

Ref: 500Mbps plan is usually enough for most of the household.

2Gbps plans are only for niche use cases:

No.

ONT Port 1: the only port active for 500Mbps and 1Gbps plan

ONT Port 2: for those with Fibre TV (not the new Starhub TV+ Box)

ONT Port 3: second port active for those with Starhub 2Gbps plan (two networks, two public IPs).

If your Linksys works fine, then no need to change. Nokia Beacon 1 is a lower end AC1200 grade router compare to the AC2600 grade of Linksys EA7500 v2 and EA8100 v1.

Main advantage of Nokia Beacon 1 is that you can buy one more unit to form a mesh, and it supports wireless connection of Starhub TV+ box. Linksys EA7500 V2 and EA8100 V1 only support wired connection to Starhub TV+ Box.
