Re: Auto Compatibility versus Auto Performance

If you know that all your connecting devices are modern (2013 & later) thus supporting the 802.11a/n/ac standard, then you can set it to auto-performance.

If not, then auto-compatibility will disallow channel bonding and a few other functions that, e.g. 2009 5GHz devices might not handle.

Something like that.

Re: Auto Compatibility versus Auto Performance

Thanks for that. I had assumed I might find an explanation in one of Virgin's bits on improving your wifi performance, but I realise that was a pretty stupid assumption.

Indeed - and some of the info they do provide is plain wrong.
