Re: CAPsMAN poor wireless speed

Personally, I get > 100Mbps using wAP AC + RB3011 running CAPsMAN, local forwarding.
But you shouldn't you expect > 500Mbps with three chains on 5GHz ac? I consider 100Mbps with that hardware pretty slow, that speed is already achievable with 2.4GHz dual chain n.

Re: android devices chooses 2.4Ghz over 5Ghz on hAP ac^2

You can raise the "antenna gain" setting on the 2.4GHz interface by some db, this will lower its tx power and cause most clients to prefer the now stronger 5GHz network.
However, this will also reduce your 2.4GHz signal range, so this "solution" isn't always feasible.

Re: Hap ac & poor performance in 2.4GHz and 5GHz

For local forwarding to work you got to setup your L2 network accordingly and configure the bridge to drop the traffic on the CAP.
Without local forwarding all your traffic will be tunneled (possibly encrypted) to the CapsMan, that's not a good idea on a device with low CPU power.
