internet link speed on wireless to slow

Hi All,

 

We are facing issues with sppedteston wireless with aruba ap´s 105 ans 7200 controller.

 

Link to the internet is 50mbps and we are getting only 3-4 mbps on wireless.

 

What could be the issue?


Aruba is connected to the " internet HP Switch" that connects to Fortinet firewall.

 

I could send you the scheme of the network

Config attached..

 

Regards

We need more information:

 

- How many access points?

- What version of ArubaOS

- What encryption are your clients using?

- How many SSIDs

- Did you do an internal speedtest

- What client did you do the speedtest with?

Re: internet link speed on wireless to slow

Are you dropping broadcasts in your Virtual Aps on those two SSIDS?

Re: internet link speed on wireless to slow

You need to put "drop broadcast and multicast" on BOTH of your virtual Aps.

Are you testing with an 802.11n client?
How many users are connected to that access point when you are testing?
Are your access points connected to gigabit ethernet ports?

link over the wired 50mbps

 

link on wireless 4 to 6 mbps

 

This is strange.

 

Aruba is connected on gi 0/0/1 to a procurve switch ( force 100 full).   Then this switch is connected to Fortinet

Re: internet link speed on wireless to slow

Do you see any errors on the Aruba or procurve interfaces?  type show interface on the Aruba side to make sure it did not negotiate poorly or have any errors.
