a customer complains about the speed of his wifi.
The speed is about 130 Mbps on client devices.

What i already have done;
- Dynamic Airtime Scheduling is enabled
- on the AP's i've enabled High-Capacity profiles on both 5 and 2,4 Ghz

AP's are 121 with around 5 to 10 clients connected.

Is there a way to manage this?

Can you elaborate more on what the capabilities are of these clients? How many streams are supported? Are they single band (2.4 GHz only) or dual band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz)? 40 MHz channels supported?

Remember that norminally-but-not-practically 150 Mb/s of throughput is possible per stream with 802.11n where there is no contention, assuming a 40 MHz channel and a short guard interval and the highest data rates being usable.

Realistically, you will need to have clients that support 5 GHz operation with a 40 MHz channel width with with two (nominally 300 Mb/s) or three (nominally 450 Mb/s) spatial stream support to see better.

Hello Nick,

The customer's device was  in 2,4 GHz band (Radio Mode 802.11 ng)

what i'm going to do is adapt the High-Capacity-20MHz profile and enable band steering.
I'll put the band steering mode to Urge 5 GHz band use.

I come back later with the results...
