Wifi speeds on 200.3.x firmware
533.6 mbps down
779.3 mbps up
Wifi speed on 200.4.x firmware
569 mbps down
759 mbps up
Wifi speed on 200.5.x firmware
336 mbps down
615 mbps up
Note this was done on a Ipad pro 12.9 inch 2018 model which should have two antenna streams.
So starting with firmware 200.5.x and through 200.6.x wifi speeds dropped a bit from the 500ish mbps range down to the 300 mbps range...
I know the R510 on the 200.6. x firmware averages on the high 250mbps
Also I do believe th R500 and R600 is also affected. I do also have access the A R500 to test.... and as well as R510, and R610.
I do believe the firmware changes with 200.5.x impact the wifi speeds... and somehow this got made worse on firmware 200.7.x
This is really bad.. I can get faster speeds on a consumer 802.11ac router... starting with firmware 200.5.
Anyway one else wants to test my conclusions with firmware 200.4.x for those that have R510, R610, R710 and R310, R500, R600.?
SpeedFlex may not be the best utility, from the Unleashed GUI, which is a SpeedFlex limitation.When running on the Master AP, it would be limited by the AP hardware which is not as powerfulas a ZD, and more as additional features have been added, especially in GW mode...
Can you test with any other 3rd party wifi testing, which should show better thoughput?

For those that are also having the problem please open a ticket so that way they don't think it's just an individual issue.
You can open it here at this link:
Please have your serial number of the Ruckus AP ready too.
And for those that are Lennar Smart Homes users please report the issue to Ruckus directly since this is a big problem for end users.
Whenever possible, I try to remove any other client device from the network (i.E. I'm the only client on my LAN or Wi-Fi) just to remove any other variables from the equation. Regarding speed, I prefer to use an application like IPERF3 to help me sort speed issues, as speeds fluctuate wildly, and it's more insightful to use applications like IPERF3
My Results using Iperf are as follows - my "server (Wired)" is 192.168.1.132 Client is a Macbook pro - Mid 2014

The IPERF software is available at the URL below. For testing, you will need the software running on two different machines. One running in server mode(-s), the other running as a client(-c)
I hope that helps SOMEONE!
Now you have a fully open ticket # from Cheryl. I guess connected you can connect with Vasanth Edward | Sr. Technical Support Engineer. Again I do believe it impacts not just the R510, R610, R710 and might even impact the R500, R600,.... I have a R500 to test... haven't done that..will do it over the weekend but make note: 200.4.x I can get full speed of what you should get. And then you lose about almost 200mbps starting with 200.5.x and then it drops very noticeable on 200.7,x
I wonder if this will also impact ZD and SZ since the WIFI drivers should be in the same development eh?
I know it also impacts Standalone firmware too... from 104.x to 110.x
