Re: Voxels FW available for 50 series Orbi only available.

Does moving to Voxel's firmware give any more info for bandwidth utilization? The stock Orbi stuff tells me the aggregate of usage, but not per device. 

 

I am interested in per device usage, so I wonder if Voxel provides that.

Re: Voxels FW available for 50 series Orbi only available.

Something to ask Voxel about over in the SNB forums. 

I don't believe his FW does though...

Re: Voxels FW available for 50 series Orbi only available.

Does anybody know if switching off the 2.4Ghz band for a single satellite is supported with this firmware?

 

The following Telnet commands work fine on the stock firmware, but reset to default (on) after reboot.

config set endis_wl_radio=0
ifconfig ath0 down

Re: Voxels FW available for 50 series Orbi only available.

I wasn't aware the Orbi satelites could be extended via ethernet. I may take this into consideration on rewiring my home. Is this common with most "mesh" systems?
