    connectivity issue need help

    It turns out that culprit is my phone! I used another phone to test and the speed is around 100Mbps for 2.4GHz. Does anyone know what could cause this on my phone? It is iPhone 11 with iOS 14. Used both speedtest.net app and webpage with same cap of 20Mbps. I don't have Qos settings.

    identifying wireless client

    Yes I was using the manual assignment before. But I've deleted all of them and using the file now. Yes I also tried to reduce the lease time to 10 minutes but no luck. Anyway I am not in hurry, will just wait :)

    once the file is created, do I need some command to "apply" it? or it will be picked up automatically, just wait until next renewal? is there any limit I should be aware regarding the length of the hostname? up to 30 characters?

    Using this file for IP will be much easier and best thing I can easily back it up! Yes it is Wyze. I have a few, but only this one has this strange MAC address. Thanks!

    identifying wireless client

    I'm in the process of assigning static ip for all known wireless clients. Many of them are easy with some sort of hint from the "client name". However there are about 10+ wireless clients only showing their MAC address and don't know what device it belongs to. One dumb way I think is to block...

    Is there a way to end a DHCP lease from router?

    I had a similar thing that once I assigned dhcp for clients I want to have them take effect immediately instead of waiting. I found that I can change the frequency setting of the wireless then change back, all clients will be renew dhcp.
