Oh, and the RX rate dropping down on the ASUSWRT client list is normal when the link is idle. The rate changes based on activity.
The rate I am seeing is the same if it is being used or not. Mainly, because it is not the rate of the Hotspot, but the rate of the primary system to the Router,. As soon as the Hotspot, on a different Wi-Fi network, is disabled the rate returns to normal.
I think it may be some type of glitch, but why only with Dell Systems. Of course, it may just be laptops, but I don't have any other brand.
Why would the system show one link rate in it properties for that network and the Router show something different. And this is not a small difference.
One other thing I notice, if you watch the link rates for all the devices, most will change for a couple of seconds and go back to advertised speeds. This one remains on the speed the other ones jump to during that time, and then jumps temporarily to is actual speed. Reverse of what the others do.
I don't need to push to hard on this for a resolution, the Hotspot seems to be working fine. I just think it is interesting.
I am only running the Hotspot for testing. Also, the link rate is a test being done, just like it is handled in Windows for the properties of a network.
