6pcs NWA5123-AC-HD
2pcs WAC500H
1pcs WAX510D (will setup this on next week)

    You can set "802.11 Mode" to be 11ax (Channel Width: 20/40/80MHz) for radio profile to give WAX510D use the 11ax capability, while NWA5123-AC-HD still can use 11ac capability.

    FYI: In case you set "802.11 Mode" as 11ac, both WAX510D and NWA5123-AC-HD will use 11ac capability.

    Hi @Rimfire,

    There is no special suggestion for radio settings when having this type of mixed AP environment.
    Besides, we have series of FAQ about radio settings to get the high wireless performance as below
    1. Maximum output power
    2. WLAN Rate Control
    3. Limit legacy clients
     
    Although the FAQ for the Nebula version, you still can refer to the feature and the value of parameters for your configuration.

    Thanks Judy!

    Great info.

    At ZyWALL Radio Profile. Is it a good idea to set "802.11 Mode" to be 11ax (Channel Width: 20/40/80MHz) when most of the APs are NWA5123-AC-HD? I mean, the AP is not actually a AX device.
