Question: I'm about to upgrade my speeds in my house and wanted to know if I will have to do a factory reset on my router to get the proper settings and readings for the new speeds. Also I had my settings changed etc when I was having problems a few months ago and it's been working like I want it to. Should I back up the settings or what should I do? Or should I do nothing at all?

You don't need to factory reset therefore no need to change settings. All you need to do is input your new speeds into Anti-Bufferbloats options.

Ok cool. So is there a way I can run another speed test to get an average speed like when you first set up the router?

If you go to Settings > Setup Wizard you can do it there or just do speedtest.net and input results from that

I did actually manage to reproduce it once so will keep trying so I can pass to the dev team.
