One way data?

Fri Oct 05, 2018 10:38 pm

I'm having a hard time solving a problem on my home network.

Basic layout: modem -Eth- router -Eth- AP - WDS Bridge- AP -Eth- AP -WiFi- devices

You can probably tell by my made up syntax that I'm not a pro. My problem is that my devices can send data towards the router (upload) at around 10+ Mbps, but can only receive data (download) at less than 1 Mbps. Not only that, but upload is more stable, while download is very intermittent and even pauses completely for many seconds at a time.

I measured and graphed the speeds using a server app connected directly to the router, and disabled all other devices during the test besides the test device.

What could be causing data to flow quickly and smooth-er in one direction, and slow and intermittent in the other? (and even the upload is less smooth than I'd expect)
