Issues with wireless AP100c

Long time lurker, first post and a beginner when it comes to more advance networking setups.  I'm using this in a home lab for learning. Running XG18

Having 2 issues with my AP100c access points.  The access point is literally 8 feet from my laptop.

  1. Connection just drops. I'll be browsing the web and for whatever reason, I'll get request time out for a few seconds.  The signal still reads high. I have tried 2 power adapters, network cables, and access points (I have 3).  No problems with the port I am using when I am hardwired to the laptop.
  2. Internal file transfer speed slow.  I always show no less than 650mbps connection and the channels I have used have no interference.   Max I ever see is around 11MB/s transfer.  I am using 80mhz channel width and if I decrease this setting to 40mhz, I get around 5MB/s.  Hard wired I get full bandwith, over 100MB/s, so it isn't a bad port.

Also, I have a AP that is not managed by Sophos, and I do not exhibit any outages when using wireless.  

TIA for any help

  • Hi Chad,

    what user devices are you testing with? My W10 always connects at 860mb/s on my AP55 while Apple devices range between 6 and 24mb/s unless you are streaming or downloading.

  • Hi Ian,

    Both my Win10 - Intel 8265 and my S9+ experience the disconnect issue.  Updated drivers on the Win10 laptop

    File copy is slow on both devices.

    Win10 - 10 MB/s connect @ 650mbps

    S9+ - 3 MB/s - connect @ 866mbps

    TIA

     

  • Bump this up to see if I can get some ideas on what to look for.  This is running in an esxi environment...

  • Check the logviewer -> system report there should be a lot of entries which might provide a guide.

  • Check if all traffic is slow. There are many tools to verify the "real throughput". 

    Would recommend to run iperf (On Server and Client).
