Hi everyone,

 

I have a small issue with my AP speed in my network, I am running a router with two AP currently.

 

The speed plan from my ISP is 500mbps.

 

Connecting to the router via wireless:

Speed Test using US server

Download speed ranges from 24.39mbps ~ 25.73mbps 

Upload speed ranges around 32.55mbps

(latency 188ms~298ms)

 

Connecting to the access point via wireless:

Speed Test using US server

Download speed ranges from 0.22mbps ~ 2.13mbps 

Upload speed ranges around 32.55mbps

(latency 13ms~895ms)

 

I previous also set up another network using the same exact hardware and there's no such issue. What could be the cause?

(My friend assisted the setup and he commented on Full-duplex 20mbps, not sure what he means.)

 

Hardwares:

ASUS RT88-U ROUTER

EDIMAX CAP1200 AP

EDIMAX PoE SWITCH (http://www.edimax.com/edimax/merchandise/merchandise_detail/data/edimax/global/smb_switches_poe/es-5104ph_v2/)

CAT 6 cables

Hi tfn,

 

The speed is normal when connecting with the main router using ethernet.

I can reach speeds up to 320mbps.

Windyy91 set all of the Dip Switches on the switch to the OFF position. DIP Switch 1-2 is POE for Cable Segments for up to 200 Meters but it will make Ports 1-2 operate at 10mbps in full-duplex. DIP Switch 3-4 is for VLAN Isolation & Traffic Shaping or (QOS) Quality of Service. since you have no need for either. These DIP Switches should also be in the off position. When this has been done redo your speed test and let me know.
