I have been running openwrt on a ubiquity routerstation pro running an Atheros AR7161 rev 2 chip. Its setup to do a 2.4Ghz SSID and here are some more stats:
Channel: 1 (2.412 GHz)
Tx-Power: 27 dBm
Signal: -43 dBm | Noise: -95 dBm
Bitrate: 48.8 Mbit/s
The problem is I just moved to a streaming service (so 3 fire sticks) and have a laptop and 2 tablets and nowadays I am seeing the iPad getting kicked off from time to time or the laptop just dragging when downloading. So I am starting to think I have saturated this radio. So I ask this:
- How can I confirm I have saturated it? According to the real-time charts in openwrt it shows an avg of 42 Mbit/s and a peak of 51.
- If I am right I was thinking about adding another radio, but to be honest I set this up back in college so just about a decade ago, so I cannot remember anything. Things like what chip, pigtails, or antennas are so far to the back of my head I have no idea what to do.
So any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!!
