we got 6 RB962UiGS-5HacT2HnT but the performance in our network is horrible. So we tried to play with it a little bit and compared it to Ruckus which has steady results around 150 Mbit/sec. We tried the default settings with 6.34.3 and we got following results on iperf:
0.00-10.00 sec 48.0 MBytes 40.3 Mbits/sec sender
which is not really good. So we played with it a lot ..
today, we tried 6.35 RC41 with wireless-rep and latest firmware
The results were following:
0.00-10.00 sec 3.50 MBytes 2.94 Mbits/sec sender
Which is really horrible.
But then, desperatelly clicking around we disabled under IP settings to uncheck Allow Fast Path and uncheck Allow Fast Path under Bridge Settings... then we got this result:
0.00-10.00 sec 119 MBytes 99.6 Mbits/sec sender
Which is useful, on receiving side we got around 200Mbit/sec even after reboot
So I want to ask what can be wrong? Why is fast path doing this? We tried to uncheck this on 6.34.3, but it had effect until the device was rebooted and then no matter what you check its doing crappy.
The config that was loaded on that worst result is following:
