Re: CAPsMan on RB4011 + CAP AC

In case of a single unit the central management purpose is a bit contradicting. It is introducing some overhead, I think (my opinion) when you have over 2 CAPS-es it makes sense to use CAPsMAN.

Re: Need help picking a MikroTik product for AP setup

Have both wAP ac and cAP ac, love them. The wAP ac has 3x3 MU-MIMO while the cAP ac has 2x2 MU-MIMO (on the 5GHz radio). Most clients support 2x2 MU-MIMO, but if it supports 3x3 MU-MIMO it will perform better.

My mistake...I thought you set it manually. Still, antenna-gain should be 2 or 3 (depending on interface), so something is messed up.
Also, never use 40MHz bandwidth for 2.4GHz radio, unless you there is absolutely no interference in that band.
