Why i can't disable the implicit beamforming on RAX120?

In the advance wireless configuration area of RAX120 , I can only enable or disable mu-mimo ..However for RAX80, I can enable or disable implicit  beamforming .

What does that mean?

On RAX120 ,the implicit beamforming have been canceled or must be enabled?

Who can tell me?

Thanks a lot?

Hello Peter_Igy - Thanks for your post and a screenshot. You can find more information about Implicit Beamforming in the article linked below. Would you also mind providing the firmware version the RAX120 is currently on.

Thanks Christian! 

I have read the article you told me. Yes, other routers can disalbe the implicit beamforming such as RAX80. There do exist the check box. However on RAX120 NO.

So i am puzzled if RAX120 doesn't support implicit beamforming or just won't let the customers change the function?  Can you tell me? Thanks a lot!

The firmware i have updated to v1.0.1.90.

Peter_Igy,

 

Sure thing! Beamforming is supported on the RAX120 however, there is no option to disable the feature in UI.

Thanks a lot, Christian!

I know beamforming is mandatory in 802.11ax.

So implicit beamforming is needless. Am I right?
