When testing the throughput of SonicPoint (ACe/ACi/N2), if you are having following issues, please check the resolution provided in this article.
- Connecting to either 5g or 2.4g on the Sonicpoint always results in a Maximum connection throughput less than 150Mbps.
- The SonicPoint does not always (rarely) shows up in the RF Analysis section even after forcing IDS scans.
The poor throughput performance may caused by RF Monitoring for the SonicPoint. By enabling RF Monitoring function, SonicWall provides real-time threat monitoring and management of SonicPoint radio frequency traffic. RF Monitoring feature does not halt legitimate network traffic when managing threats, while it will affect the connection rate.
For normal operation and expected connection rate, please turn off the “RF Monitoring” from your SonicPoint. This will offer the full connection rate.
To turn off the RF Monitoring function, please navigate to SonicPoint > SoniPoints page | Click the Edit button of the SonicPoint at SonicPointNs section you are intested in.
Click the tab General in the pop-up window, and uncheck the option Enable RF Monitoring as below.
