    Voxel R7800 + Voxel, IPv6 Prefix Delegation?

    Voxel Get Tx/Rx rates of connections to Satellites

    Hello. I was wondering if there a way to measure signal strength between the main router and Satellites, more specifically, the negotiated Tx/Rx data rates between them. It could be via SSH (contents of file) or the web UI. I'm running Voxel FW on my RBK50s. Thanks!

    Voxel Voxel Firmware Status

    For those who were not aware, @Voxel lives in Russia. The current geopolitical situation is making his personal situation very difficult, and we need to be aware that it is likely we won't have any new update for his firmwares for a while. I am not even sure he can access this forum anymore...
