If I am in the same room with the AP One AC Mini, I get great speed and my recent Macbook Pro connects at 5 GHz, 80 Mhz. If I do an ISP speed test, I am seeing my full 160Mbps down and 10Mbps up. If I go into the next room and start a speed test, either the Mac or the AC Mini tends to give up on the 5 GHz connection and revert to 2.4 Ghz. That brings the speeds down to around 80Mbps.
As a comparison, I hooked up my Apple Airport Extreme and repeated the test. The Airport Extreme worked great in the next room and kept the 5 Ghz connection. Speed test delivered the full 160Mbps over the internet and the Mac.
I cannot find any documentation on the radiation pattern for the AC mini. What can I do to improve the range? Can you describe the optimal mounting position for the AC Mini or provide any other tips? Thanks.
