Problems with wifi6 with Mikrotik.
The new WifiWave2 aka wifi6 implementation in Mikrotik has some nasty surprises.
wifiwave’s Capsman is not compatible with the older Capsman.
Now you have to run two controllers affectively. From Mikrotik 7.13 you will be able to run both. At time of writing, this is not possible on current stable.
Capsman behaves differently
The configuration is different, so you have to come up with a new configuration
Isn’t able to provision the local radio on the same device
You have to manually do this, and spend time wondering why it didn’t work like any other mikrotik before.
The cap isn’t routing
Does it need local fowarding like the older capsman? No, this time it needs:
/interface/wifiwave2/cap set slaves-datapath=datapath_record
And for some reason the cap wouldn’t take on the new configuration, unless reset.
Mikrotik’s wifi6 doesn’t work with my Thinkpad
As explained on the Mikrotik forum
The thinkpad doesn’t have an issue wifi6 from Ubiquiti…
