Belkin RT3200/Linksys E8450 WiFi AX discussion

I just noticed this yesterday.. or at least the high retransmission rate when transmitting from a 4mac STA interface -> 4mac AP interface. If I switch to OpenWrt master or use the mac80211+hostapd packages from master on 22.03 I no longer see this behavior. So something likely in mac80211 between 22.03 and master seems to have fixed it.

What version are you running?

I haven't had a chance to narrow it down to a specific patch but if I had to guess maybe this is what fixes it: https://git.openwrt.org/?p=openwrt/openwrt.git;a=commit;h=eb07020de2b4a5f89579f09f5060d4b9f070a356
