Been busy for the last weeks, I wanted to update/sync my src before posting
more feedback on this.

# uname -a
FreeBSD r2d2 11.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 11.0-CURRENT #5 r280238+2c4b57d(master):
Thu Mar 19 03:09:58 WET 2015     root@r2d2:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC-NODEBUG
 amd64

Note: the following test were done with only 2 wireless devices connect to
the router and while doing the tests on the laptop in turned wifi off in
the smartphone.
Also the smartphone was even a little bit more distant from the router than
the laptop (not much)


The issue is clear not with the 5G/2.4G as I get about the same performance
with boot see iperf results:

That's to a local Wired (1Gbit) connected iperf3 server.

In comparison I get 100+ Mpbs on my One Plus One device in an internet
speedtest, proof here: http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/1207329176

And an iperf3 test on the same smartphone to the server:

So it seems that the performance is indeed very low and only on the ath,
and not due to to much clients in either 5g or 2.4g

If important:
ath0@pci0:2:0:0:        class=0x028000 card=0xe052105b chip=0x0034168c
rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Atheros Communications Inc.'
    device     = 'AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter'
    class      = netw

# cat /var/run/dmesg.boot  | grep ath

ath0: <Atheros AR946x/AR948x> mem 0xc0400000-0xc047ffff irq 19 at device
0.0 on pci2
ath0: [HT] enabling HT modes
ath0: [HT] enabling short-GI in 20MHz mode
ath0: [HT] 1 stream STBC receive enabled
ath0: [HT] 1 stream STBC transmit enabled
ath0: [HT] 2 RX streams; 2 TX streams
ath0: AR9460 mac 640.2 RF5110 phy 0.0
ath0: 2GHz radio: 0x0000; 5GHz radio: 0x0000

Any more info I should add to help track this?

thanks
