Xb7. How do i change 2.4 to 20/40? And 5.0 to 20/40/80/160?

I can’t change those settings on my end.

Installed XB7 last night. Replaced xb6.

Disappointed.

Slower speeds. Worse range.

Hardwired and wifi.

If i can fix wifi, ill be happy.
Or wait for firmware updates.

Or go back to xb6.

I'm not 100% sure that they work bc I don't use the wifi feature but when I change the value and save, they remain at what I set.

FWIW, those were private / non internet routable links;

Only you can see them on your LAN.

Your particular gateway device may have not received the latest firmware change yet.

I figured if someone was clever enough to be messing around with these settings they would know to change the ip address to match their personal router's ip address.

 

However,  you're saying there is an update that will take that feature away?

I am not a CC employee, so I can't say that authoritatively, sorry. I can only relay what I've seen on these boards. YMMV.
