160Mbps per GHz for QoS
670Mbps per GHz without QoS

Good to know that I'm ok on my NBN HFC 100/40 Mbps link.

Thanks for the firmware.

Reposting here some speedtest I made on the 1.11.0 RC5 topic.

Testing on an AR150 device over ~500/500 link (at the time of this post).

My network layout is (outsite > inside)
ISPs Fiber ONU > WDR4300(stock fw) > AR150 (1.11.0 RC5) > PC (ookla speedtest app for windows).
Everything cabled. Gigabit when possible.

Speed test results on different scenarios:

1-
Default config after flash (QOS disabled/BWmon enabled):
94mbps/94mbps (hard limit by eth; top shows 0.70 cpu load while running a 10MBs download)

2-
QOS enabled (up and down, default rules)/ACC off/BWmon enabled:
60mbps/66mbps (top shows 0.98 cpu load while running a 6,5MBs download)

3-
QOS enabled (up and down, default rules)/ACC ON/BWmon enabled:
57mbps/65mbps (top shows 1.15 cpu load while running a 6,5MBs download)
No unnecessary "fair link limit" cap. GUI is still responsive.
ACC seems much easier for the router to handle than in previous versions.

4-
QOS enabled (up and down, default rules)/ACC ON/BWmon OFF:
82mbps/84mbps (top shows 1.03 cpu load with 8,8MBs download)
No unnecessary "fair link limit" cap. GUI is still responsive.
ACC seems much easier for the router to handle than in previous versions.
WDR4300 v1 (stock)
WR941nd v2 (1.9.2)
WA901nd v2 (1.6.2)
2x WR741nd (1.6.2)

(Up to) 1gbps up/down link

Hello,

I own the next router wrt19000acs v2, with the latest software version at Gargoyle, internet connection speed 1Gbps.
This router with the wirless mode disabled can reach 930Mbps speed, when I activate the wirless function, the speed drops somewhere below 700Mbps.
It is a bug or a software limitation, this problem can be corrected?

The Wi-Fi driver and handling the interrupts puts additional load on the CPU, meaning it can't deal with as much WAN throughput.
It's simply a limitation of the device.
