    using inSSider i noticed that InstantOn is still supporting 802.11b data rates, while i understand this might be interesting in terms of compatibility or even range , it is common best practice to set minimum datarate to 12Mbps.

    This also helps prevent 'sticky connections' when roaming through a building. At this point there is nowhere where we can change the datarate or any other parameter on the radio, like: power, channels and channelwidth .

    This would be most welcome . Hope to see this feature in the next firmware release

    Hello, Same request about radio tuning. Maybe some basic settings can be selected whit a "knob" like: - Maximize Throughput (disable lower basic rates, lower transmit power to make smaller cells) - Maximize Coverage (Max power, enabvle lower basic rates) - Balanced Kind regards

    Bump this, is a big deal, agree with setting minimum data rate at 12

    IF you dont want to just purely disable this, then I would suggest having a check-box (that is disabled by default).

    Feature name:   Support Legacy Devices

    Functionality when enabled:  Minimum supported data rate at 11 to support legacy 802.11b devices.

    Functionality when not enabled:  Minimum data rate at 12 (or 18).
