I have a quick question please about the AP throughput on these MAX 700 routers. Its really slow and im not too sure why.
I have 2 MAX 700 routers to play with, both on firmware 6.3, both factory restarted and both connected to a cheap and cheerful AP at home while I test them.
I’m seeing really poor throughput while connecting the Wireless WAN to my home AP and then joining the Internal AP on the MAX 700 with any device.
I’ll just list the speeds below is it’ll be easier:
Home AP direct to laptop averages around 25Mbps Down, 19Mbps Up
Home AP to WAN AP Max700, laptop plugged into LAN1 25Mbps Down, 19Mbps Up
Home AP to WAN AP Max700, laptop connected to MAX700 Internal AP 2Mbps Down, 6Mbps Up
This is a completely repeatable result. I know you get a small latency and reduction of throughput every time you piggyback a wifi device as its half duplex but I’ve not seen anything like this before so I’m guessing its a setting in the router somewhere I haven’t seen. I tried the basics like MTU size but I didn’t really see anything else activated that was relevant.
Any help would be great
