I'm a new bee in the OpenWrt forum. I want to manually set the radio to certain MCS for experimental use. Specifically, I want to switch MCSes to test the performance of a video streaming application in a wireless network.
Searching in the forum (and also the web) returns that I can set the MCS with
iw dev wlan1 set bitrates ht-mcs-2.4 1
wlan1 is the radio in use. However, I've tried with two routers, Linksys WRT32X and Redmi AC2100. Both routers return with:
command failed: Not supported (-95)
The Linksys uses the mwlwifi driver (
readlink /sys/class/net/wlan1/device/driver returns). Is it the issue of iw or driver? Are there any suggestions on which router supports manually setting the MCS? Thanks in advance!
