Airdrop on OSX 10.11.x not working on R7000

Airdrop is not working on the R7000. Latest firmware.

It's working fine on other wifi routers eg Apple Extreme AC, Eero, Unifi.

Is there a "setting" that needs to be turned on or off?

What firmware you're using?

Did you try other firmware versions?

How about the beta?

As my title says, the issue is a Mac running version 10.11.x of Mac OSX.

Not iOS to iOS.

Are both WiFi and Bluetooth turned on with both devices? https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203106

No problems with my configuration, although my configuration is R7000 (V1.0.5.48), iPhone 6 and 12" MacBook.

What version of osx are you running on the Macbook?

Can you post a screenshot of the ios screen showing the Mac in Airdrop discovery, and similarly the Finder screen with Airdrop showing your iPhone? Trying to compare what should be happening. Thanks
