Hello all,

I'm also interested in the performance of the WiFi on Zephyr.

I would like to ask if this info is relevant:

http://gumstix.8.x6.nabble.com/Wifi-speeds-with-Duovero-Zephyr-td4967344.html

https://github.com/gumstix/linux/commit/010810d22f6f49ac03da4ba384969432e0320453

and how we could improve the performance of the Zephyr WiFi based on this information.



Best regards,
Panayiotis

Backported patches for the firmware loading issue are here

That's a Yocto [dylan] meta-layer. I've been testing on a [dora] system,
but it's the same kernel.

I've been rebooting two COMs repeatedly for a few hours now with
no failures. Cold and warm reboots. One slow SD card, one fast.
That's longer then I've ever gone without a firmware loading failure
with a slow card.

One of the boards, the slow card, on one occasion had a problem
when I brought down uap0 manually.

Repeated messages like this
...
mwifiex_sdio mmc1:0001:1: read mp_regs failed
...

I couldn't bring the interface back up, but after a reboot everything
was fine again.  I only saw this error once.


These patches do nothing to improve the wifi throughput speed.
They are only for the firmware loading.
