1/6 connection rate speed is pretty typical in 80Mhz channels unless
you are in a very truly clean environment and your walls aren't
reflective etc etc. This is why MIMO/MU-MIMO is such a big thing and
you don't have that going for you. That’s not a Batman-adv thing.
You should try 20 and 40 MHz channels and see how that works out.
Also, the tx rate is very low. I’m not sure how accurate this test is
or if uses some ack or something that would rely on the tax. I would
try an iperf test between nodes to get a more accuarate number.
Also, are there other radios?

is this inline with what everyone has seen. That data rate established is
high however the throughput is very low
