Ok, so today I had it!
Either I am doing something wrong when configuring my hAP Lites and RB951Ui2hnd or the wireless performance on Mikrotiks (at least on these series) is very bad wich I don't think so. Today I noticed my home RB951Ui2hnd is wireless is so bad, that a junk tp-link is literally wiping the floor with it. I stand 5 meters away from the Mikrotik, plain sight and I barely get 2Mbps with on 802.11n with my Dell E4310 laptop, same with my Blackberry and tablet, the Tp-link junk is insanely over it.
So I decided to post here, all the steps I do when configuring the wireless part on my Mikrotiks, along with some screenshots of my wireless settings, maybe some of you guys spot something I'm doing wrong
My default, most used configuration is something like this:
- ether 3 and 4 have ether 2 as master
- I create bridge1, add ether2, 3, 4 and wlan1 in this bridge.
- PPPoE client on ether 1
- assign IP 192.168.1.1/24 on bridge1
- DHCP on bridge1
- NAT with out-interface PPPoE1 wich is on ether1
Then set up wireless.
The wired part works perfectly all the time, only the wireless is very poor.
I tried with or without regulatory domain set, same thing. I tried different frequencies, with or without WPA2, same poor performance.
Did I set up the channel and frequency ok?
Because I made more than 3 screenshots here a link to the uploaded pics - http://imgur.com/a/8vkhk
As wireless clients, I several Dells, my main one, a Dell E4310 with a Intel 6200 card, Dell E6430s, a Lenvo Tablet, Blackberry Q10, and the problem is present on all and on at least 3 locations where I have Mikrotiks.
