Speed issues AX8


Speed issues AX8

So I just bought these two pieces last week. They work great but every night I experience extremely slow speeds. For example at the peak I’m running about 900 mbps. But at night it drops in to the low hundreds or even slower. I have to reset the modem and router and it’s right back in to the 900’s. Thoughts on how to fix?

Personally I think it’s the modem because if I reset the router by itself it’s still slow. But when I reset the modem it speeds right back up.

Re: Speed issues AX8

Try hardwiring into the modem and just running modem----->pc and see if the issue still happens. 

How are you testing the speeds? the built in app? a dedicated app? using a hardwired pc? what app/website? 

firmware on the router?

do you have a screen snip of your modem's cable connection page?

So I hardwired in when it got slow last night. When I connected it said it was hardwired but no internet detected. I had to restart it before it the modem before the laptop showed any internet.

One I restarted everything speeds were back in the 700 mbps.

I use speedtest.net
