* Regarding the RAM requirement, I have to note that my cAP ac device shows over 80 MB of free RAM, even when 30+ clients are concurrently connected. So I assume that there is plenty of RAM left for using the new wireless firmware and drivers on IPQ4018/IPQ4019 devices which have 128 MB of RAM installed.RouterOS version 7.1beta3 has been released in public "development" channel!
!) added new experimental wireless package "wifiwave2" for ARM devices with more than 256 MB of RAM (CLI only);
* Also, as this new package contains several firmware files, libraries and linux kernel modules for different chipsets the file npk package is quite big. With its 10MB it is not possible to install it on current devices with 16MB of ROM, e.g. cAP ac, hAP ac2, new wAP ac, ...
* Of course, I want to have new features like 802.11w and MU-MIMO, WPA3 and better performance on my current MikroTik cAP ac devices. According to https://help.mikrotik.com/docs/display/ROS/WifiWave2 "400Mb/s maximum data rate in the 2.4GHz band for IPQ4019 interfaces" is possible.
* While looking around for information about modifying MikroTik´s npk packages, you could find different outdated tools for RouterOS v6 (e.g. https://github.com/kost/mikrotik-npk/). Therefore I want to ask whether someone of you already tried modifying a RouterOS V7 package at all?
* Of course, if MikroTik will provide a separate kind of "wifiwave2-lite" package for IPQ/4018/IPQ4019 devices with 16MB of ROM, I wouldn´t have to start this thread at all.
