Do you have any suggestion why my 5GHz SSID from my ASUS RT68U(Merlin) won't show up for the 7811UTC in Openelec 6.0.3 on my RPi3?
It's strange because other 5GHz SSID's from neighbours and my chromecasts do show.
Connecting to my 2.4 GHz SSID from the same router works fine.
The only thing I can think of at the moment is something to do with the set up of the RT68U on 5GHz. But what I have no idea.
Do you still have a stable 5 GHz connection with your 7811UTC / Pi 3?
I have the same wifi dongle, and while it's easy to connect to my 5 GHz network, it disconnects / drops out very often.
I very much wanted to try your drivers, but as I am using OSMC or OpenELEC, that is not really an option (is it?).
Thanks in advance.
Does the connection still work for you, and is it stable?saintnick wrote:Solved.
I got it to work with this answer from Edimax support:Thank you for your effort.The EW-7811UTC cannot detect all frequencies. If your router is using a channel which is not supported the adapter will not detect it.
This adapter only supports channels that are within band 1 and band 2. You can try to set a fixed channel on your router, using the lower 5GHz channels.
I guess I didn't try/vary enough...
