    No more WLAN issues with 802.11b ??

    I had some WLAN errors with my Radios also.

    In former days, it worked well, but a Firmware Update on my WLAN router FritzBox deactivated 802.11b silently.

    I tested all posibel WLAN configurations withe 3 Radios playing in parallel. At least for my devices, as soon as I enabled 802.11n+g+b again, everything worked very well. Maybe, you give it a try:

    WLAN-Standard
    Mit dieser Einstellung legen Sie einen WLAN-Standard fŘr das 2,4-GHz-Band fest. FŘr das 2,4-GHz-Band sind das die Standards "802.11n+g", "802.11b+g" und "802.11n+g+b".

    Greetings and a merry Christmas.

    This n+g+b issue has come up in several threads, in various guises. Heavens, it will be very annoying for many folks - using all sorts of older devices - if router firmware updates silently toss b or even g out of the window..... I'm not sure many folks would think to look for that, or frankly know anything about the innards of their router; and I wonder if every older, firmware-updated router allows b to be restituted by user choice.

    Same issues here with my 3 Radios (not with the Booms!), suddenly connection troubles.

    I can boil it down to to:
    * Update the WLAN AP Friztbox 7590 v7.21 to 7.24 beta (MESH-WLAN-Changes)

    I fixed it by:
    * reenabling my old legacy AP TP-Link WR841n, which I will now use for all legacy clients
