Hello dear readers,

I have been in a little pickle lately. I have been having problems with my Internet in terms of speed and connectivity, which is to no supprise for me since we have a lot of devices connected to one router. The Router in question is an Asus RT-AC53 -https://www.asus.com/Networking/RT-AC53/. It seems that I've been through every possible website to check what settings are the best for a reliable connection, but they never work properlly. Our connection is 200Mbps Download and 20Mbps Upload I have chosen a separet channel for the 5Ghz and 2,4Ghz connection, so they dont interfere with other routers in the area. I am using a Laptop the Asus Rog GL552VW - https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ROG-GL552VW/, the other more serious internet consumer is a PC using a TL-WN722N adapter - https://www.tp-link.com/de/home-networking/adapter/tl-wn722n/. I am posting 4 Pictures with some information about the current settings of our Router and Traffic Restrictions. And if some seem silly and not suited for multiple devices then I will change them. I have to leave a note that I am playing online games my brother as well, so gaming settings will be preferable.

I hope the info I gave in my post is enough if you need anything else to help me in my endeavours just tell me. Thank you in Advance

This can be a couple different places which is why it is hard.

I would disable the QoS setting and see if it works any different. If a device is not getting the bandiwidth it needs it could be because of the QoS.

It is generally very hard to use up all of a 200mbps internet connection so you generally don't need QoS.

You really need to test with at least one connected ethernet device to see if it is wifi or something else. You don't want to waste effort trying to fix something that is not the problem.

Wifi there is almost nothing you can configure or set. The only settings are related to what channels your router uses and what protocols are supported. The only thing you have some control over is which radio 2.4 or 5g the end devices connect to. Most wifi issues are out of your control because they are caused by interference from your neighbors wifi usage. Still you first step is to see if your problems are wifi or something else.

Ok since I am not specific enough, I hope this shares some more light.

  1. The list with devices I posted IS the maximum devices connected, but not at all times.
  2. No devices are wired connected all are connected wirelessly
  3. Only 2 are connected through the 5Ghz connection since not all devices support that connection frequency
  4. I dont know what a "G" Standard is.


    I am happy that you guys are asking questions to figure my problem better. The thing is I am not really that knowledgeable in networking, hence my questions. So do I need to drop the "QoS" or restrict some and don't resstrict other more hungry devices, will that help? I hoped me sharing all the settings in screenshots will help just to optimize cetain settings for multiple users.

    Again the problem is bitrate drop, lagging, video not streaming (probablly because of too many devices) is there a way to get rid of that by changing the settings that I posted or, is it just better to buy a new router?
Thanks
