Q: Meraki MR18, LEDE and WiFi setup

Hi, the Meraki MR18 has three radios, whats the best way to set them up? Does the MR18 support channel bonding with LEDE? Currently the best link speed I can archive is 300Mbps and I think it should archive a bit more, alteast when being next to it? Tested with a Lenovo T440s, over 5Ghz network and while being next to the MR18. My laptop shows constant 300Mbps link speed, but when looking from the LEDE GUI, its usually on 150Mbps and only sometimes fluctuates to 300.
I know that the first radio is 2.4Ghz, 2nd is for 5Ghz but the third one?

  • Dual-concurrent 802.11n radios
  • Up to 600 Mbps combined data rate
  • 24x7 real-time WIPS/WIDS and spectrum analytics
    via dedicated third radio

Page 2 goes into details of the "advanced features" that are implemented in the OEM firmware.

How you choose to use the third radio will depend on if all three are recognized by the drivers, and how much CPU power and flash space you have available.
