Streamed videos in 1080p for an hour, and downloaded a 600 MB file; both worked beautifully. There was no buffering and no CTRL-EVENT-BEACON-LOSS log messages. Tested with laptop using ath9k driver and Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter.

Works for me: all using the Mate Desktop Environment.

sirius: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU desktop (SSD + 5 hard drives in RAID-6) real:10m14.797s user:4m36.913s sys:5m4.361s

sedna: laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (SSD only) real:105m45.660s user:71m40.300s sys:35m15.368s

*** I’m intensely curious as to the reason for why sedna seems to randomly fluctuate between short (normally under 11 minutes) & extremely long (100+ minutes) elapsed times for the performance test!

This update's test gating status has been changed to 'passed'.
