SXR80 Enable Fast Roaming Setting Bugged 4.0.0.118

Was really happy to see that the "Enable Fast Roaming" option was re-added to the Advanced Wireless Settings.  However, the setting appears bugged (at least on my system) and reverts to disabled any time the router reboots.

My testing has been pretty straightforward:

Factory reset my system.

Confirmed that "Enable Fast Roaming" was off (unchecked) by default.

Enabled and saved the setting.

Reloaded the settings page and confirmed that "Enable Fast Roaming" was now checked and enabled.

Rebooted the router and confirmed that the setting had reverted to unchecked.

 

Confirmed through multiple reboots that the setting does not stay enabled and has to be manually toggled back on.

@DavidGo  can we get this looked into?

Thanks

I'll report this and let you know once I have any feedback. In the meantime could you download the debug logs and share them via PM?

Not just Fast Roaming, the option to Enable/ Disable Broadcast Name for Wireless 2 (at least) also has the same bug. I use Wireless 2 set at WPA2 for my printer, and having set the Wi-Fi in the printer, I do not want to keep broadcasting the SSID. I go to Advanced > Setup > Wireless Setup > Wireless 2 and UNCHECK the option titled Enable SSID Broadcast.

 

The option stays unchecked so long as the router does not reboot. You reboot it, the SSID is broadcast.
