I know this isn't tech support, but I'm trying to wrap my head around an issue;

I have 250mbps internet via a netgear cm500 modem. it gets 250+ regularly when directly connected.

with my TP Link TL-WR1043ND running DD-WRT v3.0-r28493 std, I only get about 160mbps

this is via gigabit ethernet, not wifi

running through a gigabit switch as well

wtf?

any tips? I don't have any QoS or Firewall enabled, and the specs I can find don't suggest there should be any limitation... no VPNs or anything weird like that going on.

Get a better router/stop using wireless?

Find a nice AC router if you want high speeds. Mikrotik makes fantastic cheap enterprise level routers for consumers, however their current 802.11AC line do not come assembled, you get a raw board with no antennas. Those Asus routers are rather nice though.

You could also try Powerline adapters, but speeds vary depending on your wiring. Ethernet over Coax is a better option if your rooms are wired for Coax.

Your router is too weak, get a better one.

thanks, this is the sort of info I was trying to find.

got a better recommendation?
>>
It's probably slower entirely because you are using dd-wrt.

Likely there is hardware accelerated NAT that only works in the tplink firmware.

Well i'm using AC68U from asus which is really good for ethernet performance, though a tad expensive. Get a router from ASUS/Netgear i would say.

Take a look at that site charts and look at their ranking,
