Disabled IPV6, will do some testing. Just realized that this Archer 1200 from Unifi is not that good after reading so many comments

that router is problematic with some users, fine for others.
for testing, sure it is ok.
chances are problems poor results from either yr eqpt or cables.
yr question has been asked 10000 times here.
becos everyone assumes with 500, 800mbps work with thier eqpt... but no.
if gets worse, more questions when it comes to wifi.
do spemnd time reading first page and other related threads on the subject.
from the above quote quoting you in regards to speeds, here are the actual encoding standards used.
720p - 2-4Mb/s
1080p - 4-12Mb/s
Every provider will encode at different rate but these are the usual rates. 720p is actually the start of HD and hypptv encodes 1080p at 8Mb/s
4k can even go up to 100+Mb/s but thats rare. Even for blu ray you can run into bandwidth issues from usb2 if you are using a blu ray usb2 reader and thats 400Mb/s. Its really highly dependent on format as well but online providers like to save bandwidth so they will use a format and setting that uses less bandwidth but to keep as much quality as possible, the downside is that it requires more CPU power to encode/decode. Blu ray discs use CPU friendlier settings so they need more bandwidth but also add a lot more information to the video as well.
the tplink AC1200 is actually decent as a router but i only use it as wifi AP. I have tested it as a router (when they come and install), but i expect basic functionality to work (IPV4, no ipv6, using google DNS and configuring around in it), usually tplink does work well but with openWRT highly dependent on hardware version. Dlink however is the worse one, both their adapters and routers, the quality of both the hardware and firmware are questionable in so many ways that i dont want to get into it. @SilentVampire you should take note of this. Part of the reason i do not recommend dlink is that its so vulnerable that its likely your router will be a part of a zombie network that not only will attack other PCs but also could spy on you as well. This is the reason why i always recommend against any dlink product, especially their IP Cams, they make such horrible mistakes that ruin your security and privacy. They even gave away their firmware keys too.
With tplink i dont expect their more advanced features to work well but most of what the stock firmware provides usually works.This post has been edited by System Error Message: Feb 1 2019, 03:07 AM
