Hello, I have Cincinnati Bell 1 gig fiber internet service. Would like to know the suggested setting to use on my duma... I understand to my knowledge that my congestion control setting are disabled, so am I at a disadvantage using this router with my internet speeds?

Go to miscellaneous settings, Enable turbo mode, as well as the second turbo mode option. This should get you as close to your 1gb speeds as possible.and yes I would leave the congestion control at 100% . As there is more than enough bandwidth to go around for all of your devices.

Hope that helped answer your question :)

As you have plenty of speeds local congestion won't be an issue for you. Use these settings:

  • Reactive Algorithm
  • 100% anti-flood
  • Share excess enabled
  • Reset device prioritisation & apply
  • Disable IPv6 in WAN, LAN & misc
  • Disable deep packet in misc
  • Enable turbo mode
  • Enable super turbo mode
  • Ensure the ethernet cables you're using connecting the R1 to hub & R1 to PC are Cat5e+/can handle your speeds.
  • Do a wired speed test from a PC
