Re: AR95XX advanced channels

you need AR9390 or AR9590 cards for costum channel bandwidth support beside 20/40mhz ... AR9380 and AR9580 do support only 20/40mhz channels ....

beside that you need a routersoftware which supports that too ;)

AR2413 doesnt support 108 mbps , the AR2414 BB MAC card does support 108 mbps ... since the mikrotik software shows always AR2413 also for AR2414 cards dont get confused and check your card and manufacturer datasheet for more informati...

1 card works fine with RB153 , but 2 or more and the board crash within 10 minutes ...

the GN-wi01HT uses also AR5006XS chipset like CM10 ...

is it maybe a driver/hardware issue ?
