    Is this modem even compatible with 300mbps g.fast? I’ve tried everything and can’t get my download speed higher than ~140mbps wired. Data rate is showing 329mbps down and 50mbps up (the upload speeds I can attain in a speedtest). Any tips for config etc would be appreciated.

    I have seen others achieve higher G. fast speeds, alas so many issues with this model, try disabling AiProtection and disable QoS, any chance of showing us your stats page ?

    Edit, also make sure you are only using IPv4 as IPV6 does not work to our UK BT standard /56

    Looks like it’s back to the smart hub and airport extreme combo for me. Besides speeds, the old openvpn build on this model only supports TLS 1.0 so can’t use it with my provider.

    Gave all that a go and got a modest increase, but still around the 150mbps mark. You’re right about this model and issues, none of the features seem to actually work!
