If you provide #WiFi access in public places, like cafes or conferences, consider QR codes encoding name/password. E.g. using When scanned, your phone connect to said network with one click.

My latest home network upgrade is completed!

I managed to buy Mikrotik hAP ax³ and cAP ax wifi access points. These replaced my two old wAP ac access points which have served me well since ~2015.

This brings my home network to 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6 Wave 2).

Currently the hAP is serving my house and the cAP is serving the utility building. However, I plan to run some benchmarks to see if there's any difference and then switch their places.

So the Unifi U6 Pro wifi6 access point only has a single Ethernet port, rather than in/out.


So on the assumption that running Ethernet through plaster/lath walls is going to *absolutely suck,* does anyone have recommendations for a Wifi-to-Eth bridge, and/or thoughts about Unifi vs. Anything Else for wifi?

Does anyone on here have a Wifi 6E router and have tested their network speed between 5Ghz and 6Ghz?

Because every device I try in whatever configuration has roughly ~400Mbps Down on 6Ghz, but reaches nearly ~850Mbps Down on 5Ghz. All happening on 80Mhz bandwidth

Making the availability of 6Ghz basically useless, it gives no speed improvement whatsoever.

Is this just my router (Netgear Nighthawk RAXE300), or is WiFi 6E simply just not as developed as I thought?

How have we not solved #WiFi redirects yet? If you're activating a new model or accessing a public network, you just get a bunch of #SSL errors as the network tries to redirect you but the browser refuses them. Users don't understand what these errors mean and definitely don't know the trick.

Android’s Wifi stack is very weird, especially in prioritization and fallbacks.

You have two networks configured.

Number 1 uses WPA EAP (enterprise networking with username and password)
Number 2 uses WPA PSK (just a password)

Number 1 has priority.

On a location with both networks, the device connects to #1. Location with only network #2, it happily connects to #2. Change any of the cipher details on the network of #1, it automatically connects to #2.

But: remove the user from network #1 (so it can’t authenticate) and it will continue to try to connect to it, constantly. It will never fall back to #2.

This is sucks for M2M devices in enterprise environments. We use the fallback network (#2) to reprovision the username/password for #1 in case of relocation of the device or if the password expires, but we can’t now, because it doesn’t fall back automatically.

Oh well, another change I have to make to my Android ROMs…
