Frustrated and Tried Everything (Slow Upload Speed) MR33

Hello all! I have poked around the internet for several days and to my dismay accidentally broke my old AP (OnHub took a tumble down 12 feet of stairs). I am resorted to using this MR33 with Openwrt 19.07.

I have tried everything from each radio to different ethernet cables, different ports on my Ubiquity edgerouter 10x.

I ran iperf from the MR33 to the router and got this:


Server listening on TCP port 5001

TCP window size: 85.3 KByte (default)



Client connecting to, TCP port 5001

TCP window size: 45.0 KByte (default)


[ 5] local port 44122 connected with port 5001

[ 4] local port 5001 connected with port 56274

[ ID] Interval Transfer Bandwidth

[ 5] 0.0-10.0 sec 887 MBytes 744 Mbits/sec

[ 4] 0.0-10.0 sec 12.1 MBytes 10.1 Mbits/sec

When I run a speedtest from a device on the wifi I get very similar results. Typically 400Mbit down and 0.05Mbit up.

I currently pay for 1Gbit down and 40Mbit up - and all of my other hardwired devices get that. Just this MR33 and anything on wifi get TERRIBLE upload. My Onhub provided similar download but exactly 40Mbit upload.

When I run iperf between any wireless device and the MR33 I get equal upload and down; so this speed issue is between the MR33 and the edgerouter. I'm inclined to believe there is something running that is requiring CPU overhead for upload but not download BUT I don't see any load spike or anything.

HELP!!!! - speedtest things

Just to sort out possible other reasons: Have you also plugged in another device directly into the router and measured upload speed there to make sure the issue is not the router ?

Sorry for the delay. A buddy of mine has the exact same device. I borrowed his and configured it the exact same way and it worked perfectly. Something is damaged with my physically I think. No other explaination at this point. Going to mark this as resolved as hardware problems. Thank you for the help.
