So I got a hAP ax2 US version (I tried to buy a ROW version but I was not allowed) and put routerOS 7.8 on it and configured it:
The ax2 reports that it is working on 5885/ax/eeeC(22dBm).
Code: Select all
/interface wifiwave2 security add authentication-types=wpa3-psk encryption=ccmp name=sec1 /interface wifiwave2 configuration add mode=ap name=cfg1 security=sec1 ssid="that one" /interface wifiwave2 set [ find default-name=wifi1 ] channel.band=5ghz-ax .frequency=5885 .width=20/40/80mhz configuration=cfg1 configuration.mode=ap disabled=no set [ find default-name=wifi2 ] channel.band=2ghz-ax .frequency=2462 .width=20mhz configuration=cfg1 configuration.mode=ap disabled=no mtu=1500
Unfortunately, I have only 2 devices that might see it. A google Pixel6a that supports Wifi6E, and an Intel AX210 based Wifi card (also Wifi6E). Unfortunately neither of them see the ax2's 5Ghz Wifi, only it's 2.4Ghz.
I also tried scanning with the hAP ax3, which I know can't use those frequencies because of the external antennas, but I thought I might still be able to scan them. It did not list the ax2's Wifi either.
So I'm wondering if anyone has actually made it work or knows why it doesn't?
EDIT: I forgot to mention that it works as expected if I choose a frequency outside UNII-4, say 5180 or even one in DFS, like 5680.
