no difference on X1c3 w/ iwm0 at pci2 dev 0 function 0 "Intel Dual Band Wireless AC 7265" rev 0x59, msi iwm0: hw rev 0x210, fw ver 17.3216344376.0, using a crappy old fonera as AP, serving as a bridge to gw w/ tcpbench. bandwidth min/avg/max/std-dev = 22.519/22.704/22.995/0.162 Mbps same bw both ways it seems.
