Re: RPi 3 - Very poor wifi performance

Being the OP, I'd just like to report that with the latest Raspbian updates (including the Wi-Fi power-management off) solves the issue for me. Thanks to all involved for the solution. Still, there is some strange behaviour with the on-board Wi-Fi interface - for example, if I ping the RPi 3 and the...

Re: RPi 3 - Very poor wifi performance

Could this be related to wifi chipset firmware, dynamic clocking frequency scaling or due to built in wifi being connected via SDIO? Possible but very unlikely. More likely is a simple driver issue.

RPi 3 - Very poor wifi performance

A fresh Raspbian Lite install on a brand new official Samsung Class 10 SD card installed in a new RPi 3. Apt-get update and upgrade direct from the Pi (using screen and keyboard) works well - no apparent network issues. However, ping and SSH from another host on the network to the RPi 3 shows abysma...

Hoping someone can help me!?
