Dave, You are not the only one noticing widespread wifi issues, and I’m beginning to think something is amiss in the core 80211 or related code, as ever since 18.06 (and up to recently released 19.07.4) I’m observing issues with sensitivity to congestion, drastic decreases in throughput at distance, and on MT76, very frequent ‘drops’ of network connectivity, yet stations remain enrolled and show good signal levels. Sometimes if comes back in 10 seconds, other times minutes. And often, a restart is the only answer.

LEDE 17.x had very good Wifi on the Archer C7, then 18.x and 19.x are nowhere near as good, especially on 2.4.

Current 5.x Master looks better on Mt76, but still see some issues.

A shame, as when the units are operating, and one is reasonably within range of 5Ghz, the throughput and low-latencies are quite good.

Are there any guides on how to gather relevant stats to help document these issues so the devs can zero in on the problems?
