Poor Wifi-Experience - any hints to optimize it?

Hey,

 

since the latest controller version there is something like the wifi-experience.

 

I ve got right now about 17 connected clients with 0%... 

 

Some of the messages are:

Trouble resolving an IP to an MAC adress (ARP timeout)

High TCP latency [on an iphone...]

High count of wifi repeats [also on an iphone, but another one]

Client is having trouble obtaining an ip via dhcp

 

But not a single client ever told me a problem.... it seems to work. 

 

Any idea how to optimize it?

1/ Get hired by UBNT.

2/ Fix the bugs or remove the buggy, confusing and misleading feature.

Kinda sad, though... no documentation, loads of bugs and users are freaking out because the controller insists on all sorts of things being wrong. Feels like the BPA on Windows Server which "hints" that SMB 1.0 file sharing protocol should be enabled...

Right now i've got a experience of 44% on my controller... ;-). I really dont like.

 

But: I think the feature is a good idea --- i just should work :-).

Some people might find it useful. Obviously much more people would find it useful if it worked properly and was documented. The implementation is rather unfortunate, though. Caughing up some arbitrary % figures based on unknown criteria which wildly fluctuate b/c the metrics are not long-term enough does not help, it's just badly confusing.

Fingers crossed!!

 

It'd be nice to not see red every time I log into controllers (plural).

By the way:

Accidently I blocked one device (an Amazon Echo ;-)). So der blocked counter ran up to 220.000. And that blocked-counter seems to count in the quality-rating of the network.
