Re: Best RTS/Fragmentation Threshold??

I use rts 256 and no Frag
frag seemsto really bog up if there are multiple Pcs
behind the client radio ( i suspect its just too much cpu overhead)

Re: Best RTS/Fragmentation Threshold??

We are having issues here at night only when the amount of users/traffic increases. At first we thought there was a network loop, but we checked all the cabling. We know its not a bandwidth issue.

We have Rocket M5's on the tower bridging to NSM5's at each building on the base. Then inside each building we have 2 to 4 NS2's.

We have RTS and Fragmentation set to OFF.

Some buildings work fine, some dont. All setting on the NS2's are the same.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

We've used RTS 256, no fragmentation since our early Engenius CB3 days and it's worked well. Now almost 100% Ubiquiti.
