Re: RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD wifi throughput problem

What client are you testing against RB4011 and what is its Wifi specifics (11ac, 1x1/2x2 or 3x3)? 3x3 will get you 500mbps close by, but 2 spatial stream device will get you max 350Mbps. You can add the APDMU aggregation levels 2-8 as well. I would not use 160Mhz (only 20/40/80) as the DFS scan for ...

Re: Need simple Wifi speed test option within Tik-app!

I understand the limitation of CPU power on the router IF you really get high throughput! But 2 things are lowering the CPU issue: - You often want to test speed at mid/far range, then throughput is not that high. - Max Wifi speed with Mikrotik is not that high neither/nor CPU limited. Indeed you mi...

Hi Erlinden, I think the issue is you can not run Bandwidth test server from a mobile device to the AP... With an Samsung S10 under Andoird iperf or Chariot end point (you can use any other wifi6 enabled phone too) you can get 900mbps TCP Wifi throughput towards a recent Wifi6 AP (not with Mikrotik ...

I would recommend you move to latest FW first, remove maybe VLAN and see if all works.

You need to add the VLAN as ports to the bridge... in Winbox --> BRIDGE --> VLAN Example: If Wifi interface is part of the VLAN then need to add it there. Same for an ethernet port. If you do not do that, the VLAN will not see the DHCP leases from the bridge. OH! Sorry did not see you are on very ol...

You should use inside "Wireless" / "Access Rules" rules per device and interface. I don't know how it works via Capsman, but assume it is possible as well. The idea is to limit the connection to good connection for 5G (allow access if signal strength ~ -80 to + 120) and for 2.4G ...
