The typical stick-shaped rigid plastic-covered antennas on consumer Wi-Fi routers are typically half-wavelength dipoles (each element is a quarter wavelength for a total antenna that's a half-wavelength long). They are not technically rubber duck antennas; rubber duck antennas are very flexible because they have a springy helical antenna covered in flexible ...

There is no web interface. It is non configurable. It is designed solely for Wireless STBs and that's it. WPS button will not work for a computer either. The WPS button is for first time connection to the STB. However if you had another VEN501 through a different provider (Telus as an example) you can flip the swith in the back to client mode and connect two ...

If being able to find that out is important to you, upgrade to an enterprise-class wireless network infrastructure solution, and use the management tools that are part of the solution you purchased. Note that APs usually have several different MAC addresses used ...

You can suggest it try channel 120 to start, but if it detects a radar energy pulse, it has to change to another ...

DD-WRT support for 5.0 GHz is suspect. For some router versions there seems to be clear indication 5.0 GHz is not supported, for some it will NEVER be supported.
