    Why You Don't Need MU-MIMO

    How do they handle MU-MIMO with 2x2 and 3x3 clients? Do the clients switch to 1x1? If not, these tests are not really testing MU-MIMO given that the APs are only 4x4.

    looking for a good 802.11AX / 1024QAM access point

    The new Omada EAP660 HD but is not cheap. The 620 is better priced but it only has GbE.

    GT-AC2900 - 160MHz not available if 2.4GHz set to ch 11?

    Support for 160Mhz channels was optional in AC and rarely implemented. They can still connect using 80Mhz.

    GT-AC2900 - 160MHz not available if 2.4GHz set to ch 11?

    There are not that many AX devices that can use 160Mhz channels. An even fewer that can use 160Mhz in AC mode

    How to make this network

    You will need to identify the addresses of their servers and define routes to them through the second router; you will also need to identify and open the port used by their apps/services. I never owned any of their products, but I see that they made it to the US sanctions list ;-)

    How to make this network

    I would not expose the cameras to the internet without a secure tunnel (established with VPN software). I am not familiar with that app. Does it expose the cameras through some cloud service? do you trust their service?

    Cat 7A help needed

    That is some badly made termination. I would put 6A Keystones (or equivalent) on both ends of the cables. Then store-bought cables between the devices and the ports.

    How to make this network

    Just to make the terminology on the picture clear: 1) Handy is a smartphone, right? 2) By modem you mean a device that combines modem+router+wireless access point It seems that need a 4G modem+router with VPN support. You would need a VPN client app in the phone and computer used outside your...

    Mesh setup advice

    I could be misremembering, but isn't 802.11r's mobility domain bound to one ESSID? So fast transition can only happen within one SSID?

    Mesh setup advice

    It should not cause any issues and it should help with roaming. Keep the band split but use one SSID per band. Use the same credentials on each router. Best if you use different 80Mhz channels for each of them. At home I use 36-48, 52-64 and 100-112 (the last two are DFS but they work in my...

    Mesh setup advice

    Why do you use different SSIDs on each AC3100? If you want devices to roam the AP should share the SSID. In my house I have 3 APs (one on each floor); I split the network into 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz SSIDs. Laptops and smartphones use the 5Ghz band. Roaming usually works quite well. The floors of the...

    Cat 7A help needed

    Cat 7 and Cat 7a are dead-end technologies but the cable is backwards compatible with 6/6A and 5e. For 25Gbase-T and 40Gbase-T IEEE 802.3bq defined the use of Cat 8 for up to 30m. They skipped Cat 7a.

    GT-AC2900 - 160MHz not available if 2.4GHz set to ch 11?

    Do you have any device compatible with this?. As far I can tell it only works with cards based on Intel Wireless-AC 9260 and 9560. It might not be worth trying to get this running

    GT-AC2900 - 160MHz not available if 2.4GHz set to ch 11?

    The first hit in Google (in English) in this one https://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/9220/asus-rog-rapture-gt-ac2900-wireless-router-review/index.html and this video showing the two connected together:

    GT-AC2900 - 160MHz not available if 2.4GHz set to ch 11?

    There are some reviews that mentioned the 160Mhz support. Asus had a compatible PCI card: https://www.asus.com/Networking-IoT-Servers/Adapters/All-series/PCE-AC58BT/
