I use 11b mode for most of my clients. I have 3 routerboard 112's in long distance shots, and I'm sorely disappointed at the performance. Compared to Star-OS, the throughput is down about 40%. Two clients just one house apart, and about 15 miles from the AP show dramatic performance differences. The RSSI is the same for both, btw. One, with compression and other atheros features enabled will pass 1200KB of compressible data, around 520-540KB of non-compressible data. Right next door, the best I can achieve through the RB112 is around 350KB. I see this dramatic deficit in ALL my MT installs, in that none of them which are over 15 miles will come anywhere near the throughput of the WRAP / Star-OS client. All are CM9 radios.
I've looked through everything I can find, and checked the "compression" box in the appropriate place (using winbox) but the performance is about the same as my compex boards's original firmware, which i judged to be "inadequate". Am I missing something? Is this just a setting problem or ??? Any help appreciated. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ neofast.net - fast internet for North East Oregon and South East Washington email me at mark at neofast dot net 541-969-8200 Direct commercial inquiries to purchasing at neofast dot net -- WISPA Wireless List: firstname.lastname@example.org Subscribe/Unsubscribe: http://lists.wispa.org/mailman/listinfo/wireless Archives: http://lists.wispa.org/pipermail/wireless/
