    So given all identicle settings, when I turn on high efficiency (wifi6) my throughput is massively slower. Running iperf without wifi 6 enabled nets me 800mbps, with it on is only 200mbps. What am I doing wrong?

    I have no answer for you, and agree that doesn't make sense.
    You probably need to get Aruba support involved.
    A couple of basic questions they would probably ask (and more):
    - Is this a controller based (AOS) or Instant deployment?
    - What's the code version?
    - AP model?
    - Any relevant config changes from default?
    - Details on the client device you're testing performance with?

    • It's an instant deployment, only 2 ap's.

    • Version 8.7.1.2_79305 Production

    • Model Aruba 515


    • Tested with Galaxy Ultra S21, Galaxy S10+, Windows 10 PC with Wifi AX adapter, Galaxy S21 5G. All yield the same results.

    • Same exact channels are used for the tests, there are no other networks deployed on these channels.

    Clients are and remain connected on 5GHz? 80MHz channel BW I guess?
    Any difference in behavior of the S10+ (which is the only one to remain connected on 11ac, while the others are all 11ax capable)?
