Model: EAP225
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 2.20.1

Hello,

 

I purchased and setup a EAP225 today to be used in my home which is replacing a failing tp-link WAP I've been using for a few years. The issue I am running into is the upload speed never goes above 1.3 Mbps.This is happen on any wireless device I have no matter the distance from the WAP. It is acting like rate limiting is on but it is not. I have changed every settings I can think of to try and fix this issue.

 

This includes the following. 

 

  • Changing the channel width, channel, power, and mode settings.
  • I have tried only using 2.4Ghz and only 5Ghz.
  • Turned off the default QoS settings one by one
  • I have updated the firmware with no change and even downgraded the firmware to an older version.
  • I tried to manage it via Omada and stand alone. It is currently in a stand alone configuration. 

 

So other maybe helpful info.

 

  • This is the only WAP in the house. I live in a rural area so the closest neighboring wireless signal is around 600 ft away so I don't think there is interference and the old WAP didn't have this issue. 
  • The EAP225 connects to a switch with a 1 Gbps connection which goes through a Cisco router. All other devices connected to the switch don't have a upload speed issue.
  • ISP gives me 50 Up and 250 Down which I do get with wired devices. I don't expect to get that on the wireless but I should be doing more than 1.3 Mbps upload.

 

At this point I'm not sure what to do. 1.3 Mbps upload is just not adequate for any workload I have.

I'm sorry mackworth I completly missed that for some reason or another I had a upload limit on the switch port the WAP is plugged in. I didn't even think to check until I tried another WAP just now and it had the same issue. I don't even remember doing it by atleast that is an easy fix.

 

Thanks for your help.

What settings did you land on for your radios on 2.4 and 5?  What kind of clients are you testing with?

After I messed with it for a while I ended up just putting the settings at default again. 

 

So for this WAP that would be:

 

2.4GHz

 

Wireless Mode: 802.11b/g/n/mixed

Channel Width: 20/40MHz

Channel: Auto

Tx Power: 24

 

5GHz

 

Wireless Mode: 802.11a/n/ac/mixed

Channel Width: 20/40/80MHz

Channel: Auto

Tx Power: 22

 

As for clients, I have tried an Samsung Galxey S8 Active, Dell Lattidue Windows 10 Laptop, 2012 Macbook Pro, and Iphone 11. I used a few different speed test apps and all get the same 1.3Mbps upload speed.

It is on by default but I have tried with it on and off. Same results. Download speed will change but nothing different with the upload.

Just to give you an idea, I just did a Speedtest from my eap245 to an iPhone 11 Pro on 5ghz and got 352 upload, so I would easily expect you to max out your 50 up. Hopefully someone has better suggestions.
