Slow Download Speeds R710 Unleashed

New Contributor
Strange issue with R710 on latest unleashed firmware. Upload speeds consistently incredible on both laptop and phone but downloads even from 5 ft away never go over 200 but stay consistent through 3 thick walls. Speedflex on android shows 550 up 550 down to AP. Iperf reflects results. Cable shouldn't be the problem as I have plugged my laptop on it and gotten the gigabit fiber speeds I should be getting. I have factory reset it countless times set everything to auto and tried manually setting the bands and channel width, am I missing something? Any help would be appreciated.Image_ images_messages_5f91c3fe135b77e24790df97_43e5db9b2eca36b81d35b46dbdb8f876_RackMultipart20190818868831y92-dc568500-96c2-4610-9714-84fb1bdd684c-743324385.jpg1566155318

BTW, why engineers tell it's speedflex problem, if this topic have iperf3 results (with speed downgrade)? Or Ruckus engineers know more precise tool to test? Or just know how to use it?

It isn’t a SpeedFlex problem. It’s a firmware problem. 200.6.x, SpeedFlex results go up, 200.7.x or 200.8.x, results go down.

After reading this thread, I downgraded my 720, 710, and 510 to 200.6.  I have 600Mbps fiber to my house and I get 575Mbps when plugged in to my router or switch directly.  When running 200.8 I was getting 150Mbps max over wifi.  After down grading to 200.6, I am getting 400+ Mbps.  All tests were done on a single AP and confirmed 5ghz.  Also tested over multiple devices including IOS and no IOS.  Something needs to be done.  Now that I downgraded, I loose functionality in the AP such as switch monitoring.

Definitely, some of the early firmware damaged the access point, which created problems with the 5 GHz network (delays, low speed, ping). I have problems with 6 APs. In addition, it became impossible for me to work with AirPrint printers (Canon, HP connected to a separate wireless network in the 2.4Ghz range on the same APs with no isolated) if the client is connected to a 5 Ghz network - the printers are simply not located, printer restart helps, but after some time printer again lost from AirPrint. Therefore, I had to disconnect the 5Ghz network and work at lower speeds at 2.4Ghz where everything works as it should. But it's crazy to spend a lot of money to face such problems ...I'm already thinking about selling my wireless points. Can someone recommend specific APs brand with seamless roaming to replace R710 and R610?

Michael Brado, I assume Ruckus doesn't make the wireless chips on their AP's themselves? If that is the case, is there a difference in wireless chipset drivers between unleashed versions 200.5/200.6/200.7 and 200.8 on the R710 units?
