Nighthawk RAX200 HT160

I just bought a used RAX200 now that I have a laptop with an Intel AX210 card. I figured I'd learn the new tech and then upgrade later.

 

I can't find a setting on the router to determine if HT160 is enabled. A search online said it would be under the MU-Mimo setting but it's not there.

 

Any suggestions?

Why do you ask? You are having problems connecting something to the RAX200?

 

You should not have to mess around in the entrails of your wifi settings.

Intel was famously hopeless at providing decent drivers for its wifi chips. If you have problems, that might be something to investigate.

If you don't see HT160 under basic, advanced or even under debug.htm, then possible that either the system handles that automatically based on support of the connecting device or its not is not supported by this model router.

You shouldn't see HT160. That setting used to enable 160hz channels. On the RAX200, that's automatic when you set your speeds to "up to 4800mbps". the 4800mbps speed requires 160hz wide channels to function.
