    I pondered this question back when ASUS stopped updating the firmware for the DSL-AC88U, alas I feel the wifi chips are slightly older on the RT-AC88U (BCM4366) compared to the BCM4366e used in the DSL-AC88U and the main cpu’s are totally different, but both Broadcom so not sure in reality, but would assume it would not work.

    Flash and RAM sizes are the same for both models so would be a very good exercise if you are feeling brave and would benefit many others

    I have just asked on the Netduma forums if they plan to create an online emulator for there new R2 / DumaOS 3, so we can try before we buy

    Hopefully something for Netduma to consider

    If your sons Consoles are available, try turning them on also and see what NAT type they are getting when yours is on also?

    If you fancy a budget friendly gaming router to play with, try the just released R2, only about £130 and British

    Have you Tried WTFast which is like a VPN for gamers, alas for myself, the console games supported by WTFast via ASUS routers was not good, so never got round to trying it?

    https://uktechhub.com/forums/topic/asus-wtfast-router-supported-games/

    Only supports one client free, but maybe another option for improved gaming .

    Yes, leave GA Off, Select the PPPoE VDSL option

    If any of the consoles play Fifa 20,  then test with GA and then with Traditional QoS, great exercise for family bonding but not during fut champs ;-)

    FYI – https://www.snbforums.com/threads/gaming-accelerator-bug.65616/#post-608174

    As you have about 35Mbps, I would allocate 5Mbps for each Xbox and the same for gaming PC,

    What are your consoles NAT Type currently if all on at the same time ?

    As a follow on, there is/was debate about ASUS Adaptive QoS vs Bandwidth Limiting and in essence, it was the case that adaptive QoS was slow for response for each packet and its prioritization, which can add packet delay and cause gaming delays etc.

    Traffic Bandwidth limiting just ensures each nominated device receives a guaranteed minimum amount of throughput and is the option I tend to use nowadays for our 2 x Xbox one Xs and a gaming PC,

    Correct, Using Game Accelerator will disable Adaptive QoS and visa versa I believe.

    Alas the ASUS Game Accelerator does not change the default que discipline of the router, like Cake etc for buffer bloat improvement and alas

    All these features are just fancy looking options that does the same as ASUS Standard QoS.

    The gaming priority feature, is basically enabling “Traditional QoS” more simplistically for users.

    Are you doing your Port Forwarding currently. are all Xbox’s OPEN NAT ?

    Edit: also ensure Que Discipline is set to fq_codel for Gaming and set your upload and download speeds to 5% less than your actual speed.

    Usually it is 10% but as your speeds are so low, hopefully 5% will help with buffer bloat etc.

    Do you have only one Xbox 1 X console or more or any other gaming consoles as this will decide whether port forwarding or UPnP is best option for OPEN Nat etc.

    What Asus model do you have, I forget ?

    Thanx! I’ve a network made of 3 dsl-ac68u (1 primary and 2 nodes)… I confirm that with latest firmware the nodes are broken, but is sufficient to revert to the previous version only the nodes… the “master” can use latest version…

    Thanks for the confirmation
