Re: RAX80 Wi-FI very slow

you told us the operating system you're testing on but not the device you're using. 

That's kind of key as mosts devices are either 1x1 antenna devices or 2x2. 

Also, I'm impressed if you're hitting 280mbps over 2.4ghz. I've been maxing out around that 90-110mbps over the 2.4ghz on a RAXE500, RAX200, and my CAX80. So I'm curious how you're testing your speeds since 2.4ghz is a much slower network. 

Current setup: CM2000-> RBKE963B-> Trendnet TEG-S380-> GS716T-> pi-hole
also in AP setup: RAXE500->EAX80
