A crude way, you could always reconfigure their ssid to 2.4ghz only and possibly disable N.
That way they would only connect at up to 54Mbps and theoretical throughout would be 60% of that or their connect speed. So think, 10-30Mbps. Plus 2.4ghz can be intensely crowded.
Leaving 5ghz on a...
Wiring all day long. I get incredible speeds over Wifi5 but it’s a shame you can’t cable it.
I therefore would only recommend something with a dedicated wifi6 backhaul. You may just about get 500-600Mbps over that providing there isn’t too many users simultaneously transmitting
Congrats and good speed tier.
You will be able to utilise most of that 500Mbps via a well positioned or decent Wi-fi AP.
I’m on 900Mbps knowing full well my Wi-fi caps out at 640Mbps max and that’s with a very careful setup.
Bargain for what you paid.
I stuck with the SH2 in the end; but if you need lots of control and features, look at something like the ASUS 88u
WiFi was the most important consideration. I have 4 APs, cabled to a hardware controller via cat6. All with power level management and good channel separation. Ceiling mounted...
Purchased a gaming spec PC from overclockers 2-3 years ago. Still incredible but has now developed a strange habit.
It hasn't been used for nearly a year, but now when I turned it on, it immediately restarts before bios. After it auto restarts it gets to the normal bios screen and then...
In addition it is very important to distribute clients. I have 4 APs. It isn’t overkill providing they are situated correctly and utilise correct channel separation and have the correct power levels.
Clients are therefore distributed very well. I did this because having all clients with mixed...
Here is my iperf3 data
Ethernet to WiFi
Accepted connection from 192.168.1.113, port 55596
[ 5] local 192.168.1.107 port 5201 connected to 192.168.1.113 port 55597

I agree I didn't expect it to achieve that sort of speed. I had seen 1 or 2 reviews in my research of what to buy suggesting the EAP 245 units do well, i.e. 600Mbps+
We have lots of Ubquiti stuff at work and they do get hot in busy environments. I just wonder if the bulkier / uglier, bigger...
I ran iperf3 many times whilst installing the AP's, before FTTP arrived, to make sure I got good throughput and client distribution between points, before fixing them in the ceilings. I did record the data somewhere but I recall it being in the 450-600Mbps region. It mostly hovered around...
Not sure if this is still relevant being 4 weeks on but I installed 3 of the EAP245 and 1 EAPW225-outdoor at my home.
I have Ubquiti kit at work and it’s solid but the performance wasn’t what I expected in a heavily used environment. The tech guy manages it and I asked what I should get for...
Thank you both for your advice.
I agree, my obsession with maximising speed isn't a realistic requirement for typical activities. I think it has come from suffering with high levels of jitter and noise from the crowded wireless environment, the make up of the house (block dividing inner walls)...
FTTP is coming, probably 300Mbps min so I want to make sure my devices achieve that.
House is 3-storey, router/wifi-ap is on floor 2 landing, so quite central, but signal is poor on floor 1 and 3 especially at the sides.
Plus, lots of 2.4ghz noise, so 5ghz needs to be everywhere ideally...
thanks for your feedback
i don't know how to maintain an overclocked system i guess.
In the past, way in the past, i built my own system and overclocked it. I just routinely ran stress tests and monitored temperatures.
I did encounter instability so i reduced the overclock down a bit...
thanks for the info
i will ask if i could swap to the inno3d card
Has better cooling and higher clock, but i think its bigger at 2.5 form factor...
