R710 Transfer Speed

I am connected to R710 and my adapter properties says i got 866 Mbps at 2.4 GHz, however when I test a file transfer I only got about 15 MB/s max... compared to another AP from other vendor, my adapter properties says i only connected to 244 Mbps, however, testing file transfer with the same laptop, same file, same server, and at the same location, it got me around 50 MB/s.
I perform both tests with no one other than me connected to the AP. I want to know why it seems Ruckus AP has my transfer speed capped somewhere? R710 is managed by a vSZ, I believe I dont have any rate limiting configured, the only thing I did was enabling OFDM only and set BSS min to 24mbps. Could this be the root cause? Please advise.

Repeat tests on different channels.  I can only guess that you must have interference near AP or Client.  Examination of AP's support info file is the only way to see for sure.

hi Brado, we have many R710 deployed, and R700 as well. We have many numbers for the other brand's AP as well and we deployed them in place of the Ruckus AP to test this.

Okay i want to try hardcode the channel from vSZ. Channel 1,6,11 are for 2.4 GHz. Which channels that I can use for 5Ghz?

and anyway, i will also try Yung Yi's suggestion to lower the BSS min value.

Tried using only channel 1,6,11
Tried choosing between 20 and 40 Mhz
Also tried lowering the BSS value

But there is no change on the data transfer speed. Still capped around 15-20Mbps. Wonder what else did i miss? Please advise.

If you're running latest drivers for your laptop radio/client drivers, and on our controller or AP,
it would be time to consult with Tech-Support...  https://support.ruckuswireless.com/contact-us

Hi Arranda,

I would try the other brands AP again, check the throughput, and check again what channel is been used by using the command: netsh wlan show interface
