    Asus Merlin: disable 802.11b DSSS/CCK

    While the solution, proposed by ColinTaylor works for me (although avoiding wl down/up would be preferable), In the explicit user-set 'N-Only' mode ( or what should be a N/AX-Only mode on AX routers), the AP should no longer broadcast any DSSS/802.11b beacons. A bug/oversight on ASUS part maybe?

    Asus Merlin: disable 802.11b DSSS/CCK

    This is perfect! works like a charm. Thank you so much. Looking at Beacons in monitor mode, I see them coming in over OFDM now. All of my G/N/AX devices look unaffected. Modifying any Wireless settings/rebooting causes these settings to be reset. How do you make these settings persist?

    Asus Merlin: disable 802.11b DSSS/CCK

    Linguistics, and opinions on right and wrong aside, does someone with the knowledge of the ASUS firmware know if 802.11b disabling is possible, either through GUI, or command line? Or does this require work on the dev side, if so, how to go about setting this in motion? As a side note, you...

    Asus Merlin: disable 802.11b DSSS/CCK

    Hello, I need to configure Asus-Merlin ax86u router to broadcast OFDM beacons on 2.4GHz. By default, ASUS on 2.4GHz uses DSSS/CCK. For example, in OpenWRT one can configure this through disabling 'legacy_rates' option, facilitated through custom hostapd patch...
