Wave2 on RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN-US ?

Tue Feb 08, 2022 9:24 am

Greetings

Some users have been reporting much improved WiFi experience using the wave2 drivers from ROSv7 on their RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN

I own the RB4011iGS+5HacQ2HnD-IN-US (USA model), which is factory locked for 2412-2462MHz, 5170-5250MHz and 5725-5835MHz frequencies. Apparently this lock can not be removed...

Due to these very restrictive frequency lock in place on the device, it seems impossible to use wave2 on the US version of the WiFi-enabled RB4011.

For the record, I can't even see the interfaces when I enable wave2 package (This is on RouterOS v7.1.1):
DefConf gen: Unable to find wifiwave2 interface(s)
error while running customized default configuration script: interrupted

So I'm just wondering, has anyone succeeded in getting wave2 to work on this model ?

Also, how is it possible for other vendors to be offering wave2 in the US market if they share the same frequency restrictions?

Does MikroTik have any plans to bring wave2 to the US-model of the RB4011?

Should I regret even buying the wifi-enabled RB4011 given how ridiculously restrictive the frequency selection is? Despite costing the same price as the international version, it seems wave2 is going to be impossible on this variant. I mean, it's disappointing enough that 2GHz isn't supported...

Anyone else facing the same dilemma ? Should I open a ticket with support ?

Please, any advice on this matter would be appreciated. Really battling with WiFi speeds over here.

Thanks

- its normal.

RB4011 Normal works only with 5Ghz card with wifiwave2 package. 2.4Ghz cards doesnt work.

Do you see 5Ghz interface after change to wifiwave2?

Thanks for reply.

No, this is part of the problem I'm having :( I don't even see the 5GHz interface when wave2 is enabled. It says "DefConf gen: Unable to find wifiwave2 interface(s)". I think its because the 5GHz interface is frequency locked. I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this problem ??

I haven't tried it on a US model device, but I don't think the frequency lock is the reason - otherwise wifiwave2 would not work on any of the US devices, and this has not been stated anywhere. The 5GHz interface should be working. Did you upgrade the RouterBOOT firmware to 7.1.1?

Got it working after upgrading to 7.1.2 and routerboot 7.1.2, and seems to be working on 5180/ac/Ceee. Still very limited on channels on "United States3" (max 80Mhz), but at least it's working. It wasn't even detecting the radio on 7.1.1. Any recommended setup guides for this ?

Will support ever be added for Wave2 on 2.4Ghz wireless or this router will be abandoned ?
Or possibility to replace the PCI card with different model (which is capable to run wave2) ?

Really - this router wifi is not good. Using wave2 the situation is better.
I dont know whats happening now with MTK team but nobody cares about customer's needs.

It will probably not be supported.

But its been a few years at this point.

Get a wireless AP and connect it to Port 10.
