Beamforming and MU-MIMO

Has this been fixed yet?

I have Beamforming turned off at the moment but I noticed when I have MU-MIMO on all my apple iOS and AppleTV devices continusouly want to to renew their DCHP address

Re: Beamforming and MU-MIMO

Hi AKLGUY

 

For what its worth, I have the RBK50 with two satellites (one original, another added) running using Beamforming and MU-MIMO, and Fast Roaming, and I have an Apple TV and many iOS devices and they seem to be ok.

 

I'm in NZ also, with Spark on Fibre.

Re: Beamforming and MU-MIMO

This isnt' an issue.

I run Beamforming enabled and MIMO disabled. All my apple devices work well for me. MIMO isn't needed unless you have many devices that support it.

 

If your wanting your devices to better keep IP addresses, set up IP address reservations ON the router for each device.
