Re: Super slow WiFi speed on default configuration

Hi guys, it seems to be a good performance for a 2.4Ghz WiFi. If need fly faster you should buy a RB with 5Ghz antenna. By other hand the default WiFi config it's not working well for me. I'm just getting 10Mbps on 2.4 WiFi. Really bad!! Limiting AMSDU to 2048 I get a non stable improvement on perf...

Re: area with 700 wifi users. mANTBox ? WapAC? other?

If you need Mikrotik WiFi wait for AX lineup, current Mikrotik devices will be unable to run the newest and greatest WiFi drivers when ROS 7 stable gets released condemning them to legacy drivers because it requires at least 256mb of RAM.

Otherwise go with another vendor.

Band steering is more complex than making SSIDs the same, the AP needs to gather information from the environment and the client capabilities/signal to redirect clients to each band.

Re: hap ac^2 - Group Key Exchange timeout / No Reconnect possible

Hello, I had the same problem on my hAP ac². But currently I'm on 6.99 developer version. Maybe this will work for you guys. The solution is to disable AES CCM in Wireless » Security Profile (default) » General. Uncheck the AES CCM for Unicast Ciphers and Group Ciphers. Just leave the TKIP options....

I hope Mikrotik implemented SQM and fixed those bugs in beta 6, otherwise why would it take so long?

That's because you're using channels 116-128, other DFS channels require 60s and the non DFS ones start instantly.

Re: MikroTik 5G wireless routers when available?

They can assemble 5G hardware, but I don't think the performance will be as good as another vendors since MT develops their own drivers so they don't need to depend on what Qualcomm says to update the Linux kernel.

Re: UI/UX On WinBox

Winbox may not be the best looking program written in some heavy framework like Electron with fancy animations and so on but gets the job done, other vendors have nicer web GUIs but they're so slow, buggy and requires you to reboot the router after each change.

Re: Cap AC wifi speed is terrible bad.

Use AMSDU Limit/Threshold 2048, no multicast buffering, no keep-alive, no WPS, WPA2 AES only, 802.11 bgn mode, no noise immunity, choose the least used channel and you'll be able to get at least 80 Mbps using a 2x2 client in 20mhz mode. If your client is 1x1 only don't expect more than 45 Mbps.

Since they recently licensed the entire WiFi spectrum for the US versions of their AC products, I guess they will for their WISP products since current consumer clients won't connect on those frequencies.
