    Hello everyone i'm currently experiencing some issues with my new Asus RT-n66u router. When I bypass the router and plug my modem directly into my computer I get consistent speeds of around 20/Mbps. When I have my router set up those speeds drop down to around 8-9 Mbps (wired connection).

    The routers firmware has been updated to the newest merlin version.

    I understand that connection speed may naturally slow down when going through a router but 50% decrease seems like over kill.

    Thanks!

    Also some clarification. I've tried different ethernet cables all with the same results.

    Another odd thing is that when I reset my router (turn off and back on) my speeds come out to be about 20mbps. However if I wait about 10 min the speeds drop down to 8-10 mbps.
