How do I check that MUMIMO is on?

Hello,

 

I am setting up a Netgear R8500 router, just updated it's firmware to V1.0.2.54_1.0.56, and I wanted to make sure the MUMIMO feature was active. I have tried logging into my router with a web browser to exhaustively check its settings, but I don't seem to be able to find the menu for turning on MUMIMO. Does this mean it is always active?


Thanks in advance.

It was available in a beta firmware I think, I assume they may be waiting for a more stable driver from Broadcom.

According to what I just read MU-MIMO is not enabled in release.

Unless you have 2 or more mu-mimo clients running at the same time it's a non issue,

It is available in the latest release. It is in the beta and I believe Elaine said it will be in the next official release.
