What should my Wi-Fi adapter settings be?

What should my Wi-Fi adapter settings be?

Prefer 2.4Ghz Band when your router only supports the 2.4Ghz frequency, under Value: from the drop-down menu. Prefer 5Ghz Band when your router does support the 5Ghz frequency, under Value: from the drop-down menu.

What is NS offload for WoWLAN?

NS offloading for WoWLAN NS offload is the network adapter’s ability to respond to a Neighbor Discovery Neighbor Solicitation request with a Neighbor Advertisement without waking the computer. Both the hardware and the driver must support NS offload to enable this feature.

What does fat channel intolerant mean?

Fat channel intolerant: When enabled, the client informs access points that it doesn’t support 40 MHz channel-widths in the 2.4 GHz band. 20/40 Coexistence: Enables coexistence techniques, which prevents the access point from using 40 MHz wide channels if it will interfere with any other detected networks.

Should I turn off NS offload?

NS Offload RECOMMENDATION: Keep this turned off. Similar in nature to ARP offload. Responds to network discovery when computer is asleep.

What should I set roaming aggressiveness to?

We recommend you to revert back to the default (Medium) if you don’t see an improvement with other values.

  • Lowest: The WiFi adapter will trigger roaming scan for another candidate AP when the signal strength with the current AP is very low.
  • Medium-Low.
  • Medium: Recommended value.
  • Medium-High.

Should you turn on Fat Channel Intolerant?

HT=High=802.11n. VHT=Very High=802.11ac. Disabled=802.11a/g rates….Default/recommended settings.

Property Value
Channel Width for 2.4GHz Auto (AP determines width)
Channel Width for 5GHz Auto (AP determines width)
802.11n Mode (for legacy adapters only) Enabled
Fat Channel Intolerant Disabled

Should I disable Fat Channel Intolerant?

At Transmit Power select highest value. If there is Fat Channel Intolerant, disable it. if there is any throughput booster, disable it.

Which is better 20MHz or 40MHz or 80MHz?

802.11ac further extended bonding to allow for 80 MHz and 160 MHz channels. Bonding channels increases throughput, which can improve performance. Thus, the difference between 20 MHz and 40 MHz is throughput. 40 MHz has higher throughput than 20 MHz thanks to channel bonding.

What channel is best for 80MHz?

Best 5GHz Wi-Fi Channel

  • If you are using 20MHz channel width, you can use channels 36, 40, 44, 48, 149, 153, 157, 161, and 165.
  • If you want to use a 40MHz channel width, you will need to use 36-40, 44-48, 149-153, or 157-161.
  • For 80MHz, you can use 36-48 or 149-161.

What should my transmit buffer be?

Look for ‘Receive Buffer’ and ‘Transmit Buffer’ in the list. The recommended size is either 512 or maybe even 1024 – you can go up to 2048 if you have enough RAM to support it. Ensure that the transmit buffer is double the receive buffer. Just remember, that going below 256 will lead to dropped packets.

Is higher roaming aggressiveness better?

Setting your roaming aggressiveness to a higher value will trigger your client device to look for APs more frequently. Your client device will not roam when set to the lowest setting unless it experiences severe link quality degradation.

Should I turn off roaming aggressiveness?

Having the aggressiveness set very low, or disabling it, can cause your computer to ‘stick’ to one AP, making it difficult to move around and maintain a connection. The low roaming aggression is the more frequent problem people run into on large networks like eduroam at UMass.
