QoS and DNS Relay disabled while router is in DMZ of a DGL-4500: ISP 100/3

QoS enabled with strict weighted configuration set for 100/5:

Seems like I am getting over 50Mb now with QoS enabled. Seems like some of my results are varying maybe due test server based as I can get around 80Mb with my ISP test server as I see a bit closer results using my ISP test server than speedtest.net: Opera browser and OSX 10.10.5

If someone else with 100Mb or greater ISP down speeds could test this. Please post your results...I see if I can find out if the QoS issue that we reported was addressed or not.  ::). There is a bit of a drop and doesn't get spot on to 100Mb however this maybe QoS head room D-Link is allowing for.  ???

I also presume that the 100Mb will be the max cap if Qos is enabled since the max preset for the Dowload link is 100Mb.

This forum thread is now closed due to EoL for the DIR-868L Rev A. Been a good router.
Thanks for all the user input.

This is the last FW update for the DIR-868L Rev A.

Users can load 3rd party FW if for continued use as a router:

Other good uses for the 868L, Wireless Bridge mode or LAN to LAN AP mode.

Good Luck.
