For starter this Quick set so far is useless... let me explain:
I install it on a rb711-5Hn that is mend to be a CPE unit...
Before it was running on 5.11 but I did a sys reset and accepted default config after fist boot after this.
Thus, after installing 5.12 I have a virgin version running on a rb711-5Hn that I am intent to use in my network.
Now I look in the Quick set and see the unit is scanning..... but nothing comes up!
Well, looking in the wireless config I see why:
1. SSID is default "MikroTik". I am not using that and neither does anybody else exept MT I presume. So it will never find a network with such name and others are not mentioned.
2. Country is not set. Meaning unit only scans these channels available in default setting. Europe 5Ghz upper band is not available now, which is the only one to be used outside in Europe! So in Europe this feature would be useless without pre-use adjustments in the config.
3. Channel width is set to "20/40 HT Above". Now this can become the fashion, but many networks nowadays also use 10Mhz bandwith to avoid interferences.
So, the Quikset window should at least ask user the country it is in and the SSID should be erased in the config. (Or make one like "any" as works in ubnt stuff. This should be part of the default config anyway.)
Last feature would be to ask for the bandwith the radio is to work in... (and the band if a a/b/g/n card? So 2,4 or 5Ghz)
In regard to the last option, I found now that running a scan on a CPE initiated over the wireless interface in this Quickset menu breaks the connection (obvious) but it comes back! Great, meaning now a scan initiated over the wireless can accidentily be run without permanentily loosing communication to that unit! Great. Next step is to arrange the scan actually performs the scan and show us the resulted info after unit comes back on line. Now (also in the winbox wireless initiated scan) after the unit comes back the scan window produces an error. And this error even comes back after I closed and re-opened scan window! I needed to reboot the device to get rid of it!
Conclusion: Yes, a great function but it definately needs some tweaking and adjustment from you guys to make it usefull for the dummy and than a succes!
Further more I would suggest that apart maybe from the PPoE funcionality not too many other settings should be add otherwise it just becomese another GUI which we already have in winbox/webfig
