I really like AR750S. It’s one of very few GL.iNet models with 5GHz support. It also have a slick and solid look. I’ve been using it in WISP mode using 5GHz on both sides (client and AP).
So far, I have two questions/complaints.
- While AR750S has two external antennas, only one of them is used for the 5GHz radio. This limits the 5GHz band for a single spatial stream and a max of 433Mbps tx rate. Further researched showed that the 5GHz radio in AS750S uses the QCA9887 chip, which is only capable of 1x1 anyway.
Question: are there plans (and dates) for a 5GHz 2x2 model?
- The external antennas in AR750S are 2dBi Fixed Antennas.
Question: is it be possible to replace them with higher gains antennas? Drilling extra holes in the body of the device is fine with me.
Question: Is there a 5GHz model (current or planned) that comes with detachable/replaceable antennas?
