    Hi – I have the above mentioned router on Firmware Version:384.17_0-gnuton1

    I’m trying to affect my maxDataRate, but the CLI is not working, please can someone help?

    I’m connected to my router via Putty 192.168.1.1, followed by telnet 169.254.0.1.

    I get to the tc> on the command prompt and tried the below commands, but I get “……..:not found”

    xdslcmd configure –maxDataRate 60000 15000 100000

    xdslctl configure –maxDataRate 60000 15000 100000

    bcm_xdslctl configure –maxDataRate 60000 15000 100000

    (I moved this post to the  @GNUton folder)

    Welcome, is your DSL-AC68U plugged into a DSL line and working currently ?

    Try using LAN port 4 first to see if you can gain access, ?

    Edit: I forgot to ask, the DSL-AC68U has a troublesome Modem (MediaTeK) and G.inp for instance is not supported by BT (Plusnet) when using the DSL-AC68U –  so lower synch rates etc ?

    Thank you for taking your time to reply.

    Yes, I currently have an up/downlink.

    Excuse my ignorance ‘lan port 4’; is this the telnet/ssh port I define in the UI, currently default 23?

     

    Or you mean the lan port back ‘4’ on the router my PC is connected too?

     

    Edit: pc connected to LAN port 4, same thing :(

    Does the putty cmd connect to router (192.168.1.1) and can you login (authenticate) etc?

    Entering character mode

    I am being a little slow, these are Broadcom based CMDS and the DSL-AC68U uses a MediaTeK DSL Chipset

    I will dig out my DSL-AC68U tonight and find the cmds you need ;-)

    I’ve tried these, that whilst they are accepted, they do not actually do anything – unless they should be preceded by a save, or reboot?

    wan dmt2 set snrmoffset xx xx (snr tweak)
    wan dmt2 set path x (0-2 channel profile fast interleaved)
    wan adsl reset

    wan vdsl2 set target_snrm xx (snr tweak vdsl2)
    wan vdsl2 set max_ds_rate xx (something about data rate)
    wan vdsl2 set manual_pms on/off (something about channel profile)
    wan vdsl2 set inpdelay_pms xx (same ^)
    wan vdsl2 set tcm_tx on/off (idk)
    wan vdsl2 set tcm_rx on/off (idk)

    try the below, I have also dropped ASUS an email and they say it cannot be done, so am a little miffed by what they said ?

    wan vdsl2 set max_ds_ratevalue’  (value = kbps ÷  8) 80000kbps ÷  8  then value  input = 10000

    Trick is I do not think this will survive a reboot and does not work on ADSL connections I believe
