Re: Caps selecting same channel

Just updated to 6.42.6, nothing has changed. AC radios are still selecting the same channel, this is quite annoying. I wish it was possible to just manually select my own channels in capsman, punt some radios off to a preferred channel. Yes I had 10 CAPs all select the same 2 channels last week (no...

Re: Simplest way to isolate WiFi users? [SOLVED]

Disabling default forward will work only on each AP. Wireless devices on different APs will still be able to see each other. The solution here is to use CAPSMAN with local forwarding and default forward disabled. That way there is only one logical bridge on the Wifi network and you can then use some...

The bonus with 6.42.1 is that it has the BCM Wifi fix in it. Already I am seeing all my Android devices and laptops with BCM chips now connecting faster than 54Mbit! Wooohooo! File transfers over SMB/CIFS to the laptops improved 50% too (on a 20MHz channel).
