    I am planing on upgrading my internet connection to 150\10.
    It can be actually up to 160mbit \ 10 mbit (with speed boost ).

    Currently, i am running:
    Tomato RAF Firmware v1.28.9013 MIPSR2-RAF-V1.2c K26 USB
    RT-N66U
    Am i going to be able to achieve those speeds on this firmware?

    If i remember correctly, shibby's firmware wasn't able to do this.

    Regards

    not able to hit full 150+ mbit, but, thats close to it.

    Victek, do you think this firmware could do more then this?

    Tomato RAF achieves higher speed if you can disable features not used or not essential .. disable iptraffic and you can earn 20Mbps more... try to disable not used features. I tested up to 196Mbps with default version, and 400Mbps with Speedtest version (without CTF enabled yet) I'm testing now...

    Okay, let me locate how to disable that.

    Thanks Victek.

    Looks like this is the most i can do with this profile, which is still good!

    Thanks Victek.

    You most likely won't hit 150+ with that connection, they sold it to you with 'speedboost' in mind which is nothing more than a sales pitch really, i got 50/10 comcast - the 50 is supposedly with speedboost but if you know how that speedboost works then as i said, becomes nothing more than sales pitch. I don't ever get a 50 sustained rate, more like 46 sustained. I do get bursts where it'll be like 53~54, but that doesn't last no more than maybe 5 mins at a time.

    The 'boost' you'd get will be in VERY short bursts, and its nothing more typical than some other cable users on that node not using bandwidth, so for that moment you'll get the 'boost' of them not using some of the total pipe - because cable is a shared speed medium, meaning the more users using that particular node, the less bandwidth as a whole you'll receive, but it'll still be close if not right up on what you bought your package to be, so it won't breach their contracted agreement.
