My network is a simple network: 1 Firewall, 1 switch, 1 WLC2504 and 7 AP-1832
If I wired my laptop to the switch and do speedtest.net, I get 900Mbs down, 900Mbs Up, which is the speed provided by our ISP 1GBPS. i am happy with that speed on LAN.
If I connect the laptop wirelessly to the AP, and do a Speedtest.net, I get 30-40Mbs down, 100Mbs Up sometimes 230Mbs
it always varies on WiFi from 45MBs to 300MBs. but most of the time we get 45-100Mbs
At all time, my laptop is connected at 900Mbs, A channel. Only 1 device on the AP, which is my laptop.
You might will ask, but I verified:
- No QoS setup anywhere in the network. WLAN QOS tab is clean.
- I even removed the switch and connected the WLC directly to the gateway. Same results
Can anyone suggest me what shall i do to get stable speed on WiFi above 300Mbs
Welcome to the world of wireless :)
What you see here is completely normal.
First of all, what Wi-Fi adapter is built into your laptop?
How many other Wi-Fi networks (and other disturbing wireless devices) are near?
Have you enabled 80 or even 160 MHz channels on 5 GHz? Please note, the higher the MHz, the smaller the cell/reachability.
But most importantly, what is the maximum speed the client is capable of? Of that connection speed, remove ~40-50% and you have the theoretical maximum transfer speed in one direction without any disturbances in the air.
Thanks for your reply.
i can see only 80GHZ option which i have enabled already in AP as well as in channel width in DCA.
We are using Iphone X to test the speed they are working on 5GHZ frequency. But my main issue is that i am not getting stable speed over WiFi. if we get stable speed above 200Mbs it will be fine.but dropping to 40Mbs is really out of understanding.
In our WLC we have only 1 Network, other than that we have one more WiFi network with different SSID.
Can you please share some snapshot of configuration to get better and stable speed.
Also i want custom client roaming. so far it is on default so it take around 2 Min to switch to another WiFI
for the safe side i have enable extended unii-2 channels, its automatically selecting channel association.
Yes there is other WiFi near by our network but i am not sure which channel they are using as it belong to other company.
My Issue is that i need stable speed of 5GHZ. Since LAN speed is 1Gbs so on wifi we can accept above 250Mbs
thanks for the reply. i am doing speedtest just below the WiFi so distance is not a matter. Moreover my concern is LAN Speed is 900Mbs but on wifi i am not able to get even 10% speed as stable.
i suspect roaming might be issue. can you please tell me what value shall i set in clean Air to get connected with highest strength WiFi
