Boosting uplink speed on iwlwifi

4 Jul

So I just made sure to have a symmetric up-link and down-link speed on my fiber connection (100/100 Mb/s). It turned out that my Thinkpad W530 (running Ubuntu 16.04 couldn’t keep up with the up-link speed – I just got around 20 Mb/s.

Thanks to ArchLinux it turned out that this was partly solved by enabling antenna aggregation. I’m now getting at least 60 Mb/s which is not perfect, but acceptable.
