I'm trying to set up Netmetal5 3x3 to substitute my current ASUS RT-N66 router indoors. It's pretty simple setup there Netmetal will act as simple AP Bridge. No other 5Ghz networks in chosen frequency. But I still see no performance boost switching from ASUS (802.11n 3x3) to Mikrotik (802.11ac 3x3).
Clients in my network are 802.11ac iMACs/Macbooks, using the same 3x3 chipsets.
The distance is 5-10m to Mikrotik.
Antennas used are 3xOMNI 5db/5Ghz. http://www.eurodk.com/en/products/indoo ... -5ghz-5dbi
I'm measuring speed between two wifi clients using iperf. It sometimes peaks at ~120Mbps. Also, the speed drops every 10-15s as you can see in the chart attached.
