Package: system

802.11ad implementation capable of providing Gigabit Ethernet speeds over wireless network.

Extend your gigabit network over a transparent AES encrypted wireless 60GHz link without usual wired or wireless network problems.

General interface properties

Sub-menu: /interface w60g

Devices comes in prefigured, connected pairs. Manual configuration is optional.

Property Description
arp (disabled | enabled | proxy-arp | reply-only; Default: enabled) Read more >>

comment (string; Default: ) Short description of the interface
disabled (yes | no; Default: yes) Whether interface is disabled
frequency (58320 | 60480 | 62640 | auto; Default: auto) Frequency used in communication (Only active on master device)
l2mtu (integer [0..65536]; Default: 1600)
mac-address (MAC; Default: )
mode (master | slave | sniff; Default: master) Operation mode
