I have a customer on a Powerbeam M2 400 connected to a 2AC Prism that get's really poor performance when doing a duplex speed test, but seems fine doing one way at a time. The thing that made us notice the problem is the listed capacities would crash whenever they would use the connection, but trend back up to normal at idle.
So in testing we get 45-55Mbps download when only doing one way speed test. But with a 2 way speed test it starts about 35-40 download but within a few seconds drops to about 6-9mbps. Seems to work this way consistently.
Is this potentially a problem with the radio itself or the power supply? Just wondering if anyone's seen this before. AFAIK this is the first time we've run into this behavior, and the other radios on that ap with similar signal perform the same whether we run duplex speed test or not.
Oh, this is fixed frame 67/33 btw.

I loaded newer firmware on the AP only and the problem seems to have gone away, but it's also quite a bit cooler here than it has been, so maybe it's temp related. I'll have to keep an eye on it for a bit and see if what the circumstances are if it happens again.
