Hello thehulk - The 1.73gbs  is dedicated to the backhaul connection only and is inaccessible.

That's an expensive loss of capability in AP mode isn't it?

Then why do i have an option to change radio 3 (5 Ghz) to 1.7 Gbs speed if it is inaccessable?

 

There must be a way to achieve 1.7 Gbs or the option should not exist in ap mode.

HT160 and MU-MIMO are two things where not all chipsets as created equal in. The problem is that the Inhell 9260 is a 2x2 system while the AP is a 4x4 - there are several interoperability issues probably still prohibiting a fully fledged 160 MHz connection on a linear channel group or a mixed channel group and when it comes on joining a MU group. Qualcomm (as used in the EX8000) seems to be better at the moment in terms of a fully functional WiFi router chipset. Haven't re-tested recently - not so long ago the 9260 was not able to work on a 80+80 MHz channel set as we have in Europe for example connecting to the Netgear R9000, too.
