iperf results with a 8812au is giving me 250+ mbps on an wireless AC connection. (same as 8.0.3)
Unfortunalely, its hanging while playing a video every minute or so, but nothing in the kodi.log file or even in dmesg! When it 'hangs', ssh is also unresponsive, but will come back after a few seconds. This was playing ~20mbps h264 mkv.
8.0.3 with 8812AU filled dmesg with messages (sorry, dont have them handy, but can post them later if you want)
On 8.0.3, if I forced 8812au just to use wireless N over 5ghz it worked fine, but on AC 8.0.3 would basically hang the pi after 3-4 minutes of video playback. There was a post on some other forums (cant find it at the moment) which described the exact problem and fix, cant find it, but if I do, I'll edit the post.
thats the thread! and as stated in the post, 7.0.x worked fine for me with 8812au on AC just fine.
If need anything else, let me know.
Heres a debug log of about 3 minutes of it playing or so;
in 12:42 and 12:43 there were pauses.
