Wireless data rates

New Contributor III

I have AT&T internet with 1 Gigabit data rate connected to the Ruckus R510. Would it be worth the money to upgrade to a new router with 2 Gigabit data rate? Would I see a big increase in the 5 Ghz wireless data flow?





Hi @MichaelH



For the R510 and ICX7150 Switch the max port negotiation will be 1G, if are connected to a Router that can negotiate to more than 1G, they will only pass a maximum of 1G if data, also take into consideration that one thing is the port speed negotiation and the other is the speed of your internet.

Hi @MichaelH 

Thank you very much for bringing us this question.

We remain open your query to have this process detailed internally.

To enable these ports to 10G, as we mentioned, we need the license (checking the  resellers it's around $750) and the compatible SFPs on both ends, which is extra cost.

Upgrading to a router with a 2 Gigabit data rate may not necessarily result in a significant increase in your 5 Ghz wireless data flow. The speed of your wireless connection is influenced by many factors, including the quality of the signal, the distance between the device and the router, and interference from other devices. Before upgrading, you could try optimizing your current setup, such as relocating the router or adjusting its settings. If you still experience slow wireless speeds, then upgrading may be worth considering, but make sure to research and choose a router that is compatible with your AT&T internet service and fits your needs.
