wifiwave2 for apartment building?

Mon Aug 22, 2022 12:04 pm

I live in densely populated apartment building area with tons of 2.4 and 5ghz APs. I see 20+ of SSIDs. 2.4Ghz is unusable for video calls and 5Ghz is gradually getting worse as the local ISPs upgrade their clients' devices. I have to "hide" in the DFU zone or some weird frequencies to get clean channel.

I don't even aim for speed anymore, reliability of the connection is the main issue. If I have important video call, I do it wired.

Would wifiwave2 enabled device help with the reliability in my scenario?

That would be a NO.
