Once the problem is fixed, before re-activating the FastTrack, you have to exception rules before the FastTrack rules in the forward chain.

Re: Extending the range of a wireless network with mikrotik

I have just used the Setup Repeater Wizard to extend my WiFi (single SSID) from one place to another. However in your case, you have three SSIDs to be extended, I believe you need to run vlan on the cable connected to the remote AP (1 main SSID, and virtual SSIDs, the terms may be incorrect).

Using btest.exe will never let you have 400+, it is limited to 3xx (around 330mbps) as confirmed in my previous test results. Try to use iperf3 if you want higher throughput.
