IAP 205 configuration for maximum speed

Hello - We have multiple IAP 205 covering the office connected to a Gigabit ethernet switch.  We recently upgraded our Internet link to a Gigabit speed. 

On laptops / smartphones we are not close to the theoretical speed but we are much closer when a laptop is connected using a wired connection.  What would be the the best practice to configure the ARM and Radio? is there anything else we need to do?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts, ideas and guidance.

ClientMatch should be enabled. I would also investigate the 76 alerts that are showing on your VC dashboard. What version of IAP firmware are you running?

In your SSID configurations under advanced, do you have Broadcast Filtering on?

Enabling broadcast filtering should give you more performance on each SSID.  (you would have to enable it on all SSIDs for maximum effect).

Re: IAP 205 configuration for maximum speed

I enabled broadcast filtering as you recommended.  When I do any speed test on a wired laptop, I get Download 460, upload 970.  But when I switch to wireless I get 113 and 200. I also see retrunsmission during the load test (see picture below)...are there any other configuration parameters that I should look into? is there any additional data you want me to provide?  Thank you!!Picture4.png

Wireless is a shared medium, so it will always be a fraction of wired performance.

Re: IAP 205 configuration for maximum speed

Understood - when I was doing the test, I was the only person using it...Is there a document that explain the best practice for all configuration parameters (I have 3 AP-205) or can you do me a big favor and look at my settings? thanks Dov
