Low throughput from Enterasys 3610 AP wired to Enterasys ewc c4110 wireless controller

Low throughput from Enterasys 3610 AP wired to Enterasys ewc c4110 wireless controller

Low throughput from Enterasys 3610 AP wired to Enterasys ewc c4110 wireless controller

Hello all,

I am working with some Enterasys equipment and I am in need of some assistance. I have a Enterasys 3610 AP wired to an Enterasys ewc c4110 wireless controller. The majority of clients that connect to this AP are experiencing very low throughput (although the NIC in my pc is achieving the expected 144 Mbps) I have included a link to an screenshot of the situation I have described above:


My colleague suspected that the dynamically controlled power transmission feature (TPC) on the the controller is causing the low throughput among the older client NIC cards. After turning this feature off, the performance did improve, but it is still sub par.

I have included a link to the screenshot of the controller config regarding the TCP setting:


Any advice on best practices for Enterasys equipment would be much appreciated. It has been quite a scavenger hunt, trying to track down the relevant information and documentation of similar situations. Enterasys manuals have not shed any light on the matter as of yet.

Thanks and be well.
