I just received my Turris Omina last week.
I have been quite busy configuring the network to what I want it to be and playing around with all the goodies ness.
I am seeing a 20Mbps drop from the router Netmetr to what I get over WiFi on my laptop.
I am right at the side of the router, 1mtr or so, I attribute it to being WiFi “issues” because with my old router I have before this (BT Smart Hub 2) I was getting on my laptop the same way the “full” 70’sMbps.
Qualcomm Atheros QCA9880 802.11acbgn
Channel: 157 (5.785 GHz) | Bitrate: 150 Mbit/s
Atheros AR9287 802.11bgn
Channel: 3 (2.422 GHz) | Bitrate: 52.9 Mbit/s
In the course of this week nothing apartar of the router has changed on my network.
So originally for the last two days I have been keeping an eye on I was getting on the high 40Mbps so I decided to play around with the settings a bit, I noticed the channel I was using for 2,4Ghz (auto) mid high frequencies was not the best, So I have moved (manual) it to channel 3 and maxed the transmission power for the 2,4Ghz radio.
This did improve the Wifi to high 50’sMbps but still I was some how expecting this router to be better or the same as the one I had. Not to be “worst”.
Any advise you could give me on getting the most out of the WiFi?
To be honest I am quite surprised about this as the other router didn’t even have external antennas.
