Hi, I own both the R7000 and 7800, on the 7800 I found the best value for RTS Threshold is about 1000 and it's the only setting, but on the R7000 there are two settings:

Fragmentation Threshold
RTS Threshold



I don't want to put some random numbers, so I ask: the RTS must be always higher than the fragmentation? And is better if is a multiple of it? What can be a good value around 1000?

Thanks and sorry for the silly question but there are too many hardwares out here Laughing

Set Fragmentation to 1500 to start and RTS to 980.
