Test Throughput Mode Wireless in MikroTik

In the wireless properties, there are many modes that can be used as needed. Wireless mode function to determine whether to enable the access point (transmitter), repeater, or enable the station (receiver). There are several modes that have almost the same function, call it eg station-bridge mode with station-pseudobridge. Now we will try to do testing mode selection effect on the throughput of data that is passed. Testing using standard band 802.11 B / G / N.

Access Point

There are only two modes that make interface works as a wireless access point. AP-Bridge topology PTMP (point to multi-point) where there are many clients are connected, and topology Bridge mode to PTP (point to point) where there is only one client is served. At this testing time, same station side - the same uses station-bridge mode.

From the results of testing there was no significant difference in throughput. When used to handle one client, throughput both still balanced, between 150Mbs up to 200Mbps up and
down. This is normal, especially when the client amounted to more than one. Interference and client positions also affect throughput.


Now we will try to do a test throughput access point side of the station where the same - the same use Bridge mode, in this case using topology Point to Point.

From the results of testing, there is no change in throughput on a station-bridge mode, station-pseudobridge, and WDS station, each - each can achieve the throughput of 200Mbps. Next we try testing performance wds-slave mode and station-pseudobridge-clone.

However there was a significant decrease in throughput at the station mode-pseudobridge-clone and wds-slave. On-station mode pseudobridge-clone throughput that can be passed around 100Mbps, almost half of the station the previous mode.

A significant decrease also occurred in wds-slave mode where throughput is passed only about 100Mbps with 2 client laptop was connected as a client and a second repeater with WDS Slave mode. Reduction in throughput at wds-slave mode can actually be said to be reasonable because the wireless interface has to work twice, received the signal and then radiates it back.

Results of testing here may differ from the test that you may do yourself. Depending on the conditions of environmental and obstruction, interference, the quality of the wireless link, and the device used.
