I was wondering if anyone had any suggested settings for the advanced->wireless section. I've been reading around for the past hour to get some insight on what I need to be doing to get my wireless a little better. I'm not trying to cover a large area or anything. The main router (whr-g54s) is on the 2nd floor. There's 3 laptops also on the 2nd floor connecting wirelessly. On the 3rd floor, I have a belkin 7230-4 v3000 in wds only mode to feed two desktops. There's also 2 laptops on the 3rd floor as well. On the 1st floor, there's a ps3 connecting wirelessly. None of the clients support afterburner, so I've got that disabled. From what I understand, leaving the rates on their default values should be fine, and clients should connect at 54mbps. The area doesn't have all too many wireless signals in the area. However, that said, I still can't get a channel that's free of overlap, so the best I can do is pick a channel next to a few weak ones. I've tried both cts auto and disabled, but didn't see too much benefit either way. I've had frame burst on, but from what I've read, it won't help much if you have more than 1-2 clients? So would I be better off disabling it? Short preamble should be selected if my clients can use it? I've tried transmit of both 42 and 63 and didn't see much difference. Would WMM help me stream from my computer (on the other end of the wds) down to the ps3? And if so, no ack would help more? I guess my biggest questions are: distance/ack timing, dtim interval, fragmentation threshold, and rts threshold. Anything I should do to those? The belkin on wds is getting about 50 for quality according to tomato. ps3 gets about 40. Now, the reason I'm asking about settings... I can't currently stream to the ps3 effectively without encountering major issues. So I got ixia qcheck and ran some testing between my desktop (connected to the belkin wds) and my laptop (directly wireless to tomato). Running tcp throughput tests, I get anywhere between 4 and 10 mbps. That's it. I saw a screenie of someone with a long range network getting 30 even. UDP isn't any better. When I run the udp streaming test of 1mbps for 30 seconds, I get obscene results quite often. Streaming Results Lost Data 931008 bytes (24.8%) Actual Throughput 0.727 Mbps That's a run I just did, which is actually one of the more decent ones. It's not unusual for me to see 40%+ lost data. Of course this is completely unacceptable, and I would want to be streaming 2mbps video. Any ideas about this??
