I went into my router settings and changed Wi-Fi Channel Bandwidth from 20 Mhz to 80 Mhz and my speed more than doubled. Files are transferring at 4x, and speedtest shows a 2x speed boost

You need to ensure the routing path is complete from internet machines to your desktop. For this to work you need to remove all port blocks (firewalls) for the ports you are interested in exposing, and also ensuring that trafic is routed from your public IP address to the server's IP (if the server is private). This is normally all accomplished on your home ...

Bridges are unaware of IP because they are Layer 2 devices. A bridge have 2 or more ports and communicate LAN segments connected to its ports. The bridge stores a table relating MAC addresses and the port where they are connected. When a bridge receives data, it verifies that the destination MAC address appears on its Addresses table, and send the data ...

I need to know how does the Bridge talk to the nodes. For an Ethernet bridge, i.e. a switch/hub: Ethernet frames that come in on one port is either A) replicated to all ports (hub style) or B) replicated to a single port where the bridge has learned the MAC address - if it has not seen the MAC address before, A happens. Hubs only do A. switches do B if ...

There is a lot going on during a file transfer. First, there is overhead during the actual transfer. So if you have a transfer rate of 'x' your actual file transfer rate will always be less then 'x' to compensate for the extra overhead in sending packets and transferring files. Secondly, your wireless speed is measured in bits but your file transfer speed ...

The increase of speed due to changeing the channel suggests that there are other router broadcasting on the same channel and thus interfering with each other. By switching to a different channel you chose one, where fewer iterferences are. There are tools like inssider which are able to show you how much is going on a channel. Choosing the one channel ...

Make sure you're connecting the WAN port of the router (it should be blue on your ASUS RT-AC56U) to the LAN port of the cable modem.

They are sub-interfaces. These are "logical" interfaces, so interfaces over a physical interface. As you can see, at the left side of the dot there is eth4, and at the right side the sub-interface ID. There might be many sub-interfaces over a single physical network card. Each of these sub-interfaces may have its own IP address, netmask, gateway and other ...

I suspect you are using Active FTP. Active FTP requires that the client be able to listen on an incoming port. A service like CanYouSeeMe is probably configured to support this, automatically opening the incoming port when needed. However, if your client is behind NAT (that is different from your server's NAT) then the client will not be able to use Active ...
