RBE971 Adjusting transmit power

I upgraded from my Orbi Wifi 6 mesh system to this new one and i was able to adjust the transmission power levels for the 2.4 and 5ghz banda before but cant find an option for that on this new Wifi 7 platform.

The problem this is causing me is that a lot of my devices are connecting to the 2.4ghz band instead of the 5ghz band, i used to set the 2.4ghz band at 25% power and all devices would always prioritize the 5ghz band. Now i even get some devices connecting at 2.4ghz to the main router with a low quality signal instead of connecting to the closest satellite at 5ghz.

Having this control of transmission power kept my network working smoothly before. This new wifi 7 platform seems to have all radios at 100% power. Running latest firmware 9.10.2.3

This was removed early on. Hopefully NG will be able to put it back in. We've asked about this.

New tech means different things.

Thanks for the reply, i really hope so because its really a shame that my “upgrade” doesn't feel like an upgrade so far, not very happy with all the little things going on.

Well, up to you to keep the system or return it. 

We get zero information here on when features would be forth coming so we don't know if or when anything would return. 

If your not happy with the system, I'd return it and maybe wait to see if this feature returns. 

Up to you.
