I have a machine that runs Windows and OpenBSD bare metal. I’m also seeing poor speeds with 2.4GHz versus 5 but both work ok in Win10. (Separate SSIDs for 2.4 vs 5 GHz on same AP) Will test more and see if I can log in a useful way.
(Running iwm on this machine)
2.4Ghz is way more stabile/reliable than 5Ghz though. Especially when there’s a lot of other noise in the air.
@jcs Concrete doesn’t help either. :(
That's why I have 3 APs in the house
stsp's bgscan diff will help choosing 5Ghz more often, and will move you to the best signal it sees
@jcs also see the mechanism in ieee80211_node.c around line 666 for selecting 2 vs 5ghz
This testing was all done with his diff applied. It only jumps ship when the signal strength is too low, which it never was.
