Wireless data rates

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?

Thanks.

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.

Thank you. So if I want greater rates, I will need to upgrade to a new switch. 

Hi @MichaelH 

Will not pass from 1G, now the ICX7150 have two SFP ports capable of 10G speed, but require purchasing a license, and you need to be connected to another device that is capable to run that speed, which normally are enterprise devices.

Hi Yarenis. Super. How do I obtain this license? I am planning on upgrading my AT&T service to 2GB+, but don't want to do until the Ruckus (or another device) will accept it.
