Re: RPi 3 - Very poor wifi performance

Mon Jan 16, 2017 5:55 am

wifi in rpi 3 verry bad !! in the other room there have poor signal - constant interruptions. LG TV in other room (over wifi) play 4k video with 46Mbit bitrate good. Wifi module hangs and does not reconnect. It would be better to buy orange pi.
How to return the money for this wonderful device ??
p.s. All smartphones have built-in wif antenna and working good, but rpi 3 wifi - developers error. And not usable for all!

I'm seeing similar poor performance with the onboard Wifi. I could not ssh in/out of it to save my life. When I added an Edimax USB Wifi and used it instead, the ssh issue promptly went away.

Very good tip for those who are using aluminum cases (which reduce wifi power), buy one that offer holes for wifi or external antenna, cheapest with all these features is from Akasa, version 2 case (version 3 will be released later this month), or buy USB dongle.
