On a 200 mbps fibre service, can wi-fi devices expect full speed?

Okay but there are many other better ways to do that, but I guess if you don't have hardware that supports those kind of metrics it makes sense.

What are some of the tests and metrics you would use?
Just wondering out of interest, I generally use iperf tests as its a good way to measure packet loss.

I run a UniFi system so can see the metrics for every single client and if I want to manually test I can do so using their WiFi Man application on a client device.

Those metrics are enough for me to accept my local links are fine and then I’ll have some automated testing with Smokeping and Speedtest Tracker until recently I started relying more on Cloudflare Warp’s Dex data for latency measurements.

Pingplotter is a very nice tool to use when specifically troubleshooting.

- Wire everything to the switch.
- Disable Wi-FI on the TP-Link.

Full speed should be possible if there is no other devices using the bandwidth. Best testing time is after midnight and before breakfast.
