How to Troubleshoot Low Throughput Issues on a Wireless Network

Introduction Data Rate is not the same as the actual Throughput achieved for a wireless network. The term Data Rate usually specifies the theoretical bit transfer rate of a particular implementation of Radio Frequency (RF) transmission. Whereas, Throughput is the actual amount of data per second that can be pushed across the link. Some spreading technologies are more effective than others, so the throughput will vary. 802.11 RF medium is a shared medium, meaning that in any discussion about throughput, it should be thought of as aggregate throughput. For example, if the data rate is 54 Mbps, because of CSMA/CA...
