Re: HAP AC

Guys, please add a new feature - completely disable all leds (power led can be enabled). It is very difficult to sleep with disco-light on the roof.

Performance with RouterOS 6.37. It works nice for me.
It can be better (450Mbps+):

Re: v6.37 [current] is released!

What setup you have on the AP? 2.4ghz or 5ghz? Encryption or not?
Maybe you could send the support output file of the config to support@mikrotik.com so we could try to reproduce this problem?
Printer use 2.4Ghz, MacBook - 5Ghz. Encryption AES. Sure I can. Wait a moment.

Re: v6.37 [current] is released!

Please tell us more detailed in what kind of setup the Apple devices are unstable? With 6.37 It needs more time to connect. When I open the lid of macbook I should wait about 1min. With 6.36 it is much faster. Also my printer by HP, when I connect it to 220V, it power on and shows on display that i...

If you see multiple wireless packages after upgrade on your device then the spare one will disappear after next reboot.

Re: Wireless performance on hAP ac (non lite)

I think 550Mbps over the wireless is pretty darn good. Remember the wireless specifications are a theoretical airspeed rate. Much like one cannot achieve 300Mbps over wireless N. It is very good but it can be better. Look this https://forum.openwrt.org/viewtopic.php?id=53703 I believe that mikrotik...

Re: How to set a correct TX-power for 5Ghz?

It does for sure. You just need to have regulatory domain, your country and gain value set on wireless tab. on Tx power tab should be "default" mode. Then, changing the gain value changes the tx power. It cannot have any impact on the rx power, but you can regulate it on the second side as tx power...

Re: How to set a correct TX-power for 5Ghz?

Looks like it does not help - #7 . Antenna gain does not affect on Tx/Rx Signal Strength. It is still -55-57dBm. So there is no way to reduce tx-power for 5Ghz?

How to set a correct TX-power for 5Ghz?

Tried to set a correct tx-power. I read that Tx/Rx Signal Strength should be between -60...-70 for best perfomance. I tried to change a value to different with "all rates fixed" and I see that SNR drops down, but Tx/Rx Signal Strength not. It is still ~ -55dBm.

Little differences between 2.4 and 5 are normal since according to the documentation , but in your case probably difference comes from country regulations.
