Hello,

 

I saw something strange.

My network speed is not ideal, since no client can get more than 54 Mbps, on 2.4 Ghz, and 5 Ghz.

The access point is in an open space, and all clients are in the 5 m range.

My modes on the access point :
2.4 Ghz >> a/b/g mixed

5 Ghz >> a/n/ac mixed.

 

In attachment you can see that the connections are good.

 

My controller is version 3.0.5 (updated from 2.5.4 to 3.0.2 to 3.0.5)

My EAP 245v3 has firmware version 2.0.0 Build 20180601 Rel. 52885

 

Anyone an idea?
Server/controller and access point are already restarted.

 

Kind regards

I enabled it , and the speeds went up.

But, can you explain to me why this is the cause?

 

Kind regards

Not realy, but WMM is required by 802.11n and 802.11ac you have to google to investigate more :-)

If you disable WMM, an AP falls back to 802.11b/g resp. 802.11a which means that you are requesting the EAP to cap the maximum WiFi speed at 54 Mbps. WMM is a requirement for the 802.11n/ac standards; without it 802.11n/ac speeds won't be negotiated by clients and APs at all.
