A few questions about the AC1900 router.
« on: November 06, 2015, 01:53:42 am »
Hi, I purchased one of these and so far it seems like a great router but I do have some questions about the interface.

1. Can I disable the third DNS server that the router is grabbing? I don't see the option but it does show in the "System information" tab

2. I am not sure what SSID isolation and wireless client isolation are.

3. My router log seems to be filled with lots of strange error codes despite working well.  Is this normal?
example :
2015/11/06 01:21:15    WIRELESS    wl0: link up (eth1)
2015/11/06 01:21:15    WIRELESS    wl0: wlc_txbf_init_sta: scb aleady has user index 0
2015/11/06 01:21:15    WIRELESS    wl0: wlc_reset: !!!BIG-hammer!!!
2015/11/06 01:21:15    WIRELESS    wl0: fatal error, reinitializing
2015/11/06 01:21:15    WIRELESS    wl0: wlc_full_reset(0x1): starting backplane reset

4. Is it possible to create a separate guest SSID for each guest band? Some devices are having issues when trying to connect to the guest band. I can't exactly tell if it is displaying a 2.4 or 5 signal because it changes every time I refresh.

5. What does "permit port scanning" do exactly?

6.  Is the admin password really limited to eight characters?

Thanks, I have the buffalo version with regular firmware.
