802.11N MCS related issue of AIR-CT2504-K9 & AIR-LAP1142N-T-K9

The story is:

After I set MCS parameter to 8 as below:

then, the data rate of STA shows Tx=5.5, Rx=39.0, as you can see below:

Isn't the data rate supposed to be 14 Mbps@MCS 8(20MHz, short GI)?

How's the values 5.5 / 39 would happen?

Would anyone could explain it please?

Thank you very much.

Hi Falcon,

Are you certain this client was connected at MCS 8?  Issue a 'show client detail ' from the CLI of the controller.

Cheers,
Erwin

Hi Erwin:

Thanks for your kindly reply.

After executing the command, i found that even i set MCS to 8, the Current Rate is still dynamic changing. Every time i execute the command, it usually reports another different current rate to me. The data rate is unable to fix at MCS 8.

Is this behavior correct? Because i have checked the MCS8 checking box ONLY. (refer to previous snapshot)

As i know some access point will fix the data rate if user sets a fixed MCS parameter. I think it's more reasonable. Isn't it?

Thank you.
