Enabling WiFi 6 in 21.02

I have release 21.02 flashed on a UniFi 6 Lite. Is there an option in LuCI to enable 802.11ax (WiFi 6), or do I need to do it manually by setting htmode to 'HE80' in the CLI?

EDIT: I see in LuCI that Operating frequency it only gives a choice of AC, not AX. I gather we still need to enable Wifi 6 manually still with this release.

Ping...just responding to my own thread to bump it up. In order to activate WiFi 6, do we manually only set htmode to 'HE80' in the CLI or is there a way through LuCI?

Snapshot releases have support for configuring WiFi 6 in Luci.

I'm guessing that won't be available as this wasn't added until a few months ago (post 21.02)

OK, thanks. I haven't been "brave enough" to run snapshot releases on my UniFi 6 Lite, although admittedly in years prior I did have a WRT1900ACS that I ran snapshots on. Perhaps I'll give them a go on the UniFi so I get the WiFi 6 Luci capability.

Again thanks for the info.

AX is enabled in luci in 21.02.1. I've tested the Lite and it will take an AX channel up to 80Mhz.I thought the lite and the LR would both to 160Mhz. Just the LR has more mimo...
