Disable Implicit Beamforming
Implicit beamforming contrasts with explicit beamforming, which means that your router actively tracks clients and
directs power to the router antenna closest to the client. Explicit beamforming works whether or not the client supports
beamforming. Implicit beamforming means that the router can use information from client devices that support
beamforming to improve the WiFi signal. This feature is enabled by default, but you can disable it.
To disable airtime fairness:
1.
Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.

Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.

Enter the router user name and password.

Control the WiFi Radios
The router’s internal WiFi radios broadcast signals in the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz ranges. By default, they are on so that
you can connect over WiFi to the router. When the WiFi radios are off, you can still use an Ethernet cable for a LAN
connection to the router.
You can turn the WiFi radios on and off with the WiFi On/Off button on the router, or you can log in to the router
and enable or disable the WiFi radios. If you are close to the router, it might be easier to press its WiFi On/Off button.
