I have a network consisting of a pfSense firewall, switches and a few Ubiquiti AP's. I recently acquired both a cAP lite and a cAP ac to test them, configuring the ac as CAPsMAN and the lite as a CAP, it kind of worked but the connection was very slow in all wireless clients on both AP's (loading web pages and streaming videos was very bad in many different phones and laptops). So I took the cAP lite off the wall, reset it and started testing following these instructions viewtopic.php?t=143446#p763654. After configuring the cAP lite I have internet access through its Wi-Fi, but it's noticiably slow. Here are a few tests I ran on speedtest.net.
In the first test I connected the cAP lite in the switch that's connected to the pfSense firewall and held the ap right above the laptop's keyboard (it's worth noting I did that in a relatively recluse area where I get almost no Wi-Fi interference), so it was only a few centimetrers from its wireless card, I also made sure to be the only connected client. The second test was with the same laptop now wired with the same cable I used in the cAP in the previous test. The third test was using my already set up Wi-Fi network using Unifi hardware (UAP-LR) ~10m away from it. The last test was like the previous but I was right below the AP.
I still haven't tested the cAP ac like that as it's installed in a more busy area, so for now I'll look only into the lite and I'll test the ac as soon as I can. Going back to the topic, I noticed something else, but I believe the problem may lie elsewhere like some configuration I missed or from the firewall (which I'm not sure as everything else is working just fine). Though I have internet access in a host connected to the AP, I can't ping from the AP itself to the gateway, ping from the gateway to the AP, nor can I search for package updates from WinBox (ERROR: could not resolve dns name), but I can successfully ping from it to other hosts (my wired computer, the laptop connected to its wireless network, the Windows Server, etc) and vice versa (ping from my computer or laptop to AP).
So to boil things down, I have these two problems:
1 - Poor wireless performance on cAP ac and cAP lite;
2 - (apparently) No internet access in the AP.
Any ideas to what I'm doing wrong?
This is my network:
And this is the config
