R7 WiFi Router - Compatibility with Apple Macintosh

wbg10 1 year ago updated 1 year ago 2

Does your new R7 WiFi Router work well with Apple Extreme Base Stations?  Does the software run on Macs?  Is it compatible with wireless ac, n, g, etc.?

Thank you for your question!


Our router is a plug-and-play router.  It has no software and requires no software to be installed on client devices.  We have not tested the unit with an Apple Extreme Base Station, but it should work.  Our router can be configured to be a repeated/etc.  Testing is recommended, and wiring a connection between the main router and any other routers is recommended as well.  We have only tested the router as a standalone single-router setup.  The firmware we use - DD-WRT - supports these advanced features of using multiple routers.

Your description on your store indicates the router can be configured using open source software.  What is the software that you would use for this?  Is there a manual or spec sheet?  From your response, I'm guessing it will support customary wireless speeds, but you didn't confirm that.  I'm specifically wanting to make sure it will support wireless ac.  I'm also accustomed to some level of control over wireless configuration, such as separate 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz, channel assignments, and guest wireless network options.  Apple allows this on their base stations.  I would want the ability to use whatever software that works with the R7 to allow me similar flexibility in configuring that one if I'm going to use it to replace the wireless option on my Apple Base Station.  There isn't enough information in your web page description for me to determine how this would be done and I don't want to purchase until I know for sure what I'd be getting. Plug and play is fine, but sometimes we need a little more than that.  I'm hoping you can fill in some of these blanks for me.  Thanks so much.
