i am using the GL.Inet x750 (Spitz) in Germany. The LTE speed is acceptable right now (ca. 100Mbit, even though 200+ MBit is possible with other devices). Speedtest-netperf on the router shows the around 100Mbit speed.
My main problem is the Wifi, which it is really terrible, I am getting only <30 Mbit using 5Ghz. I have read through the forum something regarding 50% performance drop in Wifi.
Is there any new solution? I have already tried noscan option and it did not help.
I connected the GL-X750 using ethernet to a Dlink router (DIR518L to be exact) and the dlink router could reach speeds around 50 Mbit/s, which almost the double what GL-X750 achieves. Unfortunately the ethernet cable is quit old (100Mbit max).
My goal is using the 5Ghz Wifi from the GL-X750 though
Thank you for your reply. I am indeed trying to use LTE → 5G Wifi
After updating to beta2 it seems like the 2G Wifi got a better download speed around 30Mbit while the upload was around 13Mbit.
On 5G Wifi it was always max. 20 Mbit (tested on multiple devices), while the upload speed was around max. 30Mbit. The speeds are also very unstable getting <10Mbit very often.
The LTE-Coverage is very good around here, on a no name mobile device (Leeco Le 2), a Cat4 phone, the speed reaches 130Mbit in download and around 100Mbit using Wifi-Hotspot. I wish the X750 would achiev its potential as Cat6 Device, which is unfortunatly not happening at the moment.
the speed at the moment is really bad around 2,5Mbps. I tried a Huawei router and it could reach more than 130Mbit LTE → 5G Wifi. Interesting though, that the ping was way better the on the x750 (20ms vs. 39ms).
using the last released openwrt-x750-3.105 (compiled in December) the performance got alooooot better (speeds till 200Mbit). I tried the Goldenorb 03.2020 firmware too, and it was good too but unfortunately ca ( Carrier Aggregation) was not working so the speed was almost the half of the above mentioned.
I hope this performance levels stays with future firmwares.
Thank you for your update, I saved me from selling this device!
Similar performance decrease appears to be happening when disabling wmm for 5Ghz.
The wmm option enabled causes connection problems with some devices though, so these devices are forced to use 2.4Ghz, which is something I can live with at the moment
