OpenWRT Wifi settings on R9000

Hi,

I've managed to install OpenWrt (Barrier Breaker) fw on my R9000 and all is working well. However i cannot find anywhere where I can change the channel bandwidths (20/40/80mhz) for the 2.4ghz and 5ghz radios. Maybe its locked down?

Also would I be able to install the latest Openwrt built 15.05 (Chaos Calmer) on my R9000 or would i risk bricking it?

Cheers

I would wait until there's an

I would wait until there's an "official" R9000 release, otherwise there is likely a risk of bricking. I don't know for sure but I hope we'll see a Chaos Calmer release soon.

You can still change wifi

You can still change wifi settings in /etc/config/wireless.

There are some tuning options available too, just google for em.

Hello,

Hello,

 

I want to use 60GHz Wi-Fi of Nighthawk x10 R9000 and measure RSS. I need ssh access to the router to measure RSS

I would like to know if OpenWRT Firmware will support 60GHz?

 

Thanks,

Mihir
