Re: Low WiFi speeds on hAP ac²

~300mbps is good for Mikrotik WiFi, if you need something faster there are other vendors out there with more innovative technologies like WiFi 6 and 4x4 UL/DL MU-MIMO as well as OFDMA.

Re: v7.1rc3 [development] is released!

Later I will unscrew board from enclosure and see if its IPQ-4018 or IPQ 4019-based.
Even if ROS says IPQ4019 on board you should have an IPQ4018 according to the official specs, I have opened my hAP ac2 and it's an IPQ4018.

Re: v7.1rc3 [development] is released!

What went wrong? Which limitation did appear?
Prolly RAM limitation, ath10k requires 256MB RAM for two radios for proper functionality.

OpenWrt barely runs on these units with a patch to reduce ath10k-ct RAM consumption but it's not usable for anything else than basic router/AP functionality.

Re: routeros 7 hAP ac2 wave2 special installer req

hAP ac2 has the same wireless chip as the ac3. Most likely it's excluded from the compatibility list because of it's 16MB of storage.
Storage is not an issue but RAM is, Qualcomm ath10k requires 256MB of RAM for two radios.

Re: hAP AC vs hAP ac3/2

Mikrotik WiFi it's not the best but considering how cheap the regular AC2 is as a wired router you can add a WiFi 6 EAP620 HD TPLINK AP to your setup.

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.

Re: rb4011or rt5300ac

The RB4011 hardware is actually better in each aspect, the problem with Mikrotik is that they use their own wireless driver instead of using the driver provided by Qualcomm. They do that to avoid depending on Qualcomm to update the Linux kernel when MT wants and not when Qualcomm releases a compatib...

Lower both AMSDU Limit and Threshold to 2048, my S10e was constantly disconnecting every 5-10min despite being next to the router. After changing those settings, the phone only disconnects when I have a really low signal as it used to be with my old router. Edit: I saw you're using AMPDU priorities ...

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.

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.
