So... I have finally found out that my brand new GT-AX11000's weak 5GHz-1 is due to the Canadian 5GHz regulations. However, the 2018 update has increased the lower band's max conducted power from 200mW to 1W. I would assume since my router was manufactured in mid-2021 (version A1.1), it should take advantage of this new regulation but it doesn't, unfortunately. My question is, "Can the 5GHz max conducted output be increased by the firmware from 200mW to 1W?" If so, any chance this might be implemented by Merlin or Asus in the near future? I have contacted Asus tech supports in the past but the replies were always some random meaningless answers so I have given up contacting them.
