Re: CAP AC disables 5G after some time

My hAP AC2 + cAP AC has the same problem, the 5GHz on hAP will disappear after my iPhone roam, and nothing was logged. I’ve noticed the wireless interfaces show Master and Slave together, so what I did is I remove all the wireless interfaces in bridge and let the CAPsMAN to add it dynamically, this ...

Re: hAP AC2+cAP AC Roaming is a joke

There’s been a lot of technical logics been discussing, it seems like MikroTik is doing the right way, but the only result is : BAD. As an end users, we only care about the result, no matter how high end or how deep you can go for to explain it, we just care about the result. If MikroTik is the only...

Re: hAP AC2+cAP AC Roaming is a joke

For sure CAPsMAN can do roaming, but how about the experience of it? Video call hangs for 2~4 seconds during roaming and total throughput is low, I dunno why it will slow the things down as I monitored the CPU usage and nothing special, CPU is just about 10% (1 core 50%+-), I have really no ideal wh...

Re: Capsman ? WDS ? Mesh ?

I tried it all, CAPsMAN gives me the best roaming experience, but it will reduce the max download speed from 470mbps to 360mbps, if your ISP speed is lower than that and you will be totally fine. Btw my setup is cAP AC2 + hAP AC

It's funny to see us discussing something that WE DON’T HAVE, while other users from other vendors are enjoying the benefits of it

The current solution for me to have high throughput and smooth roaming is: 1. No CAPsMAN 2. Set both APs to AP Bridge mode and Dynamic Mesh with same channel 3.

What is the difference between "Cap" and "Home ap dual" quickset If you /export compact the configuration?
I will export it once I have free time, my family members start to complaint for the down time recently, and kids starts screaming once the Wi-Fi drops, so I can’t keep doing it now, lol

I've confirmed the problem, when I use Quick Set "Home AP Dual", my Wi-Fi upload speed will be 200mbps, if I use Quick Set "CAP", the upload speed will become 400mbps.
