Slow LAN Speeds but Good speeds behind the AP that is connected to the MX65

Hi 

We are having issues with LAN speeds are slow but when we connect to the AP that is connected to the meraki we are getting good speeds.We connected one computer behind the MX65 and tried to do a speedstest we are just getting 30-50% of the speeds that we are getting behind the modem but when we connect using the WIFI we get 80-90% that we are getting  behind the modem. Any thoughts about this issue. 

 

ISP: Spectrum 100M/10M

Equipments
MX65

MR33

2 Laptops with 10/100 NIC

Kind of a big deal

Is the AP bridging to the LAN (and if so, are the clients going into the same VLAN as wired users), or is it using Meraki DHCP?

Yes AP is set to "Bridge mode: Make clients part of the LAN"  We do have a separate VLANs for wired and wireless connection.

When attached to a LAN port they will be using their wired MAC address, versus WiFi when they will be using their WiFi MAC address.

 

Check out both of these clients (even though it is the same client) and make sure they have the same group policy applied.

Just want to ask where to find the group policy?

Click on the client, and you can see what is applied to the client in the bottom left hand corner.

We do have 3 rules applied for our wired connection in layer 3 and no policy applied to wireless connection. But the thing is that we have multiple sites that uses the same config and we are not having issues with those other sites.  😞

You are connecting directly to the MX when testing wired or is there another switch?  Either way, I wonder if you could have a duplex mismatch?  Maybe try setting the ports to 100-Full on the MX and laptop.
