BUG: Asus RT-AX86S - Missing Channel Utilization information for 2.4GHz Band


Very Senior Member
Hi @ASUSWRT_2020

I have a AiMesh setup with
  • AiMesh Router: RT-AX88U
  • AiMesh Nodes: RT-AX86S and RT-AC86U
  • with current stock firmware shown in my signature below
I use WiFiExplorer App on my MacBookPro 14” (Apple M1 Pro Chip) with macOS Monterey 12.3.1 and I noticed the missing Channel Utilisation and contacted WiFiExplorer developer. The following is his reply:

“We have confirmed the network with BSSID 7C:XX:XX:XX:2E:21 does’t advertise the BSS Load information element which should include the channel utilization measurement. See attached for a network that does include the BSS Load information element. You will need to contact Asus to determine why that network in particular is not advertising the BSS Load information element.”

PS: I have just send via Asus Feedback with All logs and pointing them to this post, hoping this would get their attention.
