hi… i recently purchased the brume + wifi kit and i’m seeing the following results testing through fast.com and speedtest.net… all averaged out after testing 3 times on each site on a gig fiber connection.
With Wireguard VPN ON:
wifi: 52Mbps / 3.7Mbps
lan: 85Mbps / 11Mbps
as previously stated, i purchased the kit. this kit comes with a “AC-1200Mbps Dual-band Wireless USB Adapter” recognized on the dashboard as a “8812AU Dongle”. I am testing in direct view of the router w/ a desktop running win10 + AC wireless PCIE card. i can understand the lack of performance w/ the VPN option enabled. however, with it off, the most i’m able to get even w/ vpn off is “79Mbps / 130Mbps” … i’ve set the wireless options to 5ghz - 802.11a/n/ac - 20/40/80 - 161. what am i missing here?..
i’ll mostly be using this device with wireless clients. is this performance normal?
thanks in advance.
edit1: changing channel bandwidth to “80 mhz” only improved wifi performance tho this may be a problem if intend to use devices other than laptops + desktops (?)
connecting to torguard 10gbit wireguard slightly improved performance (tho not relevant)
best results i’ve seen so far are 112Mbps download / 112Mbp upload.
Yeah, it’s certainly crappy. But you should use the search function.
Several people have said a few (bad) things about it. But no official answer yet. https://forum.gl-inet.com/t/brume-mv1000-with-usb-wifi-adapter-observations-and-questions/14083
As a system and network admin for more than 20 years, I suggest you use a decent WiFi access point instead of trying to emulate one with a MV1000. You will fail. I’ll probably be banned for good with this one, huh ?
When I use the BRUME (I often switch to a RT-AC68U because I prefer the FreshTomato interface and it gives more VPN options) I connect it to a Mikrotik wAP ac. I measured 6 W input from the POE injector power supply. I’m not going to detail its specifications here as it’s not the place but you’ll find it easily.
