  • Question po, yung PROLiNK PRS1841U-v2 Router, sa 2.4Ghz bandwidth, hindi nya ma max out talaga yung 100Mbps ? Nasa 50Mbps DL speed lang na aabot nya, and that is pag walang ka channel na ibang ssid.

    Sa 5Ghz naman, abot 99-100Mbps.
  • pwede bang gamitin/configure/convert ang isang adsl2+ modem/router into a normal router? say kunwari lumipat ka na ng fiber, gusto mo gamitin yung adsl2+ modem/router mo as a normal router

    Pwede. Just turn its dhcp server off. Pero unahin mo i-setup yung wifi basic and security settings, chances are hindi mo na ma-access gui niyan pag-off mo ng dhcp server. But it'll only function as a switch for both wireless and wired clients.
  • question:

    is it possible to limit a specific device (via mac address) when it can or cannot connect to the router? or it is connected pero on a set time it'll slow down to 20kbps or something. Para lang di siya makapag-video chat/video stream. If yes, what feature should look for in a router?

    another question (unrelated sa first):

    we have a PLDT router here sa office, the ONT is not setup on bridge mode. this supplies our internet sa firewall namin. If i'd set up VPN sa firewall, necessary bang naka-bridge mode si ONT?

    -- Most router kaya mag limit ng bandwidth per IP or ip segments, pero per MAC, palagay ko meron routers na kaya naman lalo na mga high end, baka kaya pa pati oras.

    @gen0

    AFAIK kapag nasa blocked list sya ng mac filter connected pa rin yung device sa router pero walang connection.

    I'm using asus rt-ac88u, pwede magset ng schedule kung kelan may internet access thru time scheduling and sa QOS naman para magset yung bandwidth.

    kapag 2.4Ghz normally ganun talaga, kahit sa ibang router.

  • Load Balancing on the Peplink Balance One Router




    Just an example why I have a load balancing router. No one experiences slowdown, coz the router automatically sends new sessions/connections to the least used up WAN connection. So everyone at the moment is on PLDT DSL (50down/50up), while my PC is downloading GTA V on Skybroadband at full speed (100down/5up)

    Kahit ba sa Huawei PLDT modem ganito din ba? Kailangan bang ilagay mo sa 5Ghz para makuha mo ang 100mb DL speed? What if I use a LAN ethernet cable to my PC , magiging 100mb din ba?
  • @Archi
    yes you need 5Ghz. or pwede rin LAN ethernet, mas mabilis syempre LAN since wired yun.

    Boss frequency,
    Bakit noong may speedboost promo ang PLDT from 25mb, using 2.4 GHz naging 90MB DL speed ko pero Upload speed ko nasa below 50 MB lang.
  • @Archi
    pinakamaganda is to test via LAN ang speed mo. sa LAN ba you can get 100/100Mbps? if yes at sa 2.4Ghz ay hindi then limitation lang talaga ng wireless.

    oo, sayang I forgot to test it via LAN, wala na kasing speedboost sa akin ngayon e. thanks bossing!

  • sa mga naka tplink na routers. sulit ba yung HomeCare Antivirus feature nila?

    Thank you. I got a TPLink Archer C6. May scheduling siya (under parental controls). Di ko lang ma-figure out yung QOS, though di pa naman need dahil ML lang gamers sa bahay. hehe
  • sa mga nakatplink routers dyan nararanasan nyo ba yung pag restart ng mga routers nyo randomly? minsan weekly minsan every 5 days. daming report sa forums nila eh.
  • @tongerks
    im using 2 x archer c7, very stable naman sa akin. brownout lang pahinga :-)
  • Need help po regarding our PLDT connection which I think is CGNAT na.

    Modem/Router: Prolink PRS1841U

    Di kasi magkaroon ng stable connection ang Xbox One during multiplayer games. Laging nadidisconnect.
    I've search for Port Forwarding, DMZ etc. but ang problem is ung CGNAT mismo. Di allowed ang port forwarding base sa pagsearch ko.
    Tumawag na ako sa PLDT almost daily but wala naman progress for almost 2 weeks.
    I checked sa sites like canyouseemee.org kung open ang ports na ginagamit ng Xbox Live pero di talaga makita.

    Ano po ba kailangan ko gawin or bilihin para lang magkaroon ng stable connection.

    uubra ba ang DMZ kung ilagay ko ang IP ng Xbox sa DMZ?
    need ko ba bumili ng separate router?

    Pls help.
