WRT1900AC v1: Is it possible to use all 6 radios at the same time?


Is it possible to configure WRT1900AC v1 to use all 6 radios at the same time?
If so, does anyone know how to configure it?

I'm using OpenWRT 18.06.1

Thank you.

What makes you believe that the Linksys WRT1900AC v1 had six radios?

It doesn't, it has two - one 2.4 GHz only wlan card, one 5 GHz only wlan card.

This image shows 6 radios.

So something went wrong (changing device paths) during past upgrades, leaving stale device entries in the list - that doesn't mean actual hardware materializes out of the void. Clean up /etc/config/wireless, problem solved.

Hi what you can see is a mest up file witch you can find at:
It can happen after flashing different builds of OpenWrt and keeping settings. It happened to me after jumping from a Kernel 4.4 build to a Kernel 4.9 build.
It has 2 radios. Radio 0 is a 5 ghz radio and radio 1 is a 2.4 ghz radio.
