Let's hope it gets included in the kernel sooner rather than later.
My Wifi 6 AP is capable of 1500 Mbps in the 5G band, thus I would expect
the maximum TX or RX rate to be about 750 Mbps. At a distance of ~1 m
from the AP, and using the latest version of
, the command 'iperf3 -c
192.168.1.51 -u -b 400M -P 4' yields a throughput of 346 Mbps is each
direction. A local LibreSpeed server has rates of 610 Mbps download and
244 Mbps upload. Using speedtest.net
, the device gets the maximum rates
that my broadband connection provides. I feel these rates are
satisfactory. The connection is stable. All factors considered, this is
a good driver.
It will be included in the kernel relatively soon, probably in 5.15. The
main impediment is the dearth of reviewers.
Spent hours on Sunday trying to get the openSUSE OBS repos to work 100%
fail simply does not work - both Leap 15.3 and TW.
Getting the source from Git and make/install works perfectly on TW will
not even make in Leap, sorry forgot to not the error but was related to
the redefinition of a variable.
Just ping me if you need any other tests.
