what is your ping reading?

 

To be honest, the OC200 is a controller and ultimately WiFi will experience MUCH more lag than a cable ever will due to the nature of the network medium the data is transversing.   This is not something that can be corrected or adjusted via a setting, any router that offers "gaming enhanced" or "anti lag" is really just marketing buzz words.  The best a setting could do it enable jumbo frames or reduce guard times.. might shave off 1-2 ms ping,  tbh all you can really do is move closer to the AP.

 

However, if your lag is being caused by a congested WAN link, you could consider having a separate VLAN or SSID for your gaming and apply bandwidth controls to the nongaming network.  This could free up resources and help things.

@Philbert May I asked what is the recommended height of pole for the installation of EAP225 outdoor antenna? I have a 18 meters pole installed but when i connected to the AP for about 100 meters the signal is strong but there is no internet connection, but when i move closer to AP I can surf the net without any problem. I know this question is out of topic but, if you can give me any tips it will be much appreciated. Thanks.

The problem is not on the height of the pole. It is the distance issue. The coverage radius of EAP225-outdoor is about 200 meters, that is, the device can transmit signal to 200 meters away under ideal environment. However, the network communication is a two-way behavior, which requires a sender as well as a receiver in the network environment. The EAP as a sender can send the signal to 200 meters away, but the client devices may not send the signal back to the EAP from 200 meters. The coverage range is decided by the capacity of your client devices, not by EAP. This is the reason why you can see the signal but can't access internet 100 meters away.

100% agree with Somnus

 

We get this issue reported quite often and as mentioned YES the AP may be able to send it over 200m, there is little to no chance a mobile / laptop etc would be able to return the signal that distance.

 

From experience you are looking at around 60 to 70m of usable distance.  If you need to have WiFi at 100m you should look to repeating that signal via use of a mesh node (another 225 outdoor for example) or creating a point to point connection

 

Sadly the height of your post wont help with this one, its a Rx signal issue.

In the screenshot you provided, are you pinging the Controller?

 

I notice the 1ms pings are common so this is a LAN connection, however the odd spike over 100 is usually a result of a Router in place and not a switch.   Are you connected to a ISP router?
