UNIFI: Configure DTIM and Beacon Interval

 

The DTIM can be changed through the controller, but the Beacon is not that easy.

 

It can kind of be modified via  SSH but there are problems upon restart.

 

will test the DTIM from its default 3 to 6 to see if this changes our connection issues, then will continue to explore the Beacon.

 

 

Update:

To see current Beacon Interval Value:

iwpriv ath0 get_bintval

 

To change to your desired value (in my case 1000)

iwpriv ath0 bintval 1000

 

 

cfgmtd -w -p /etc or save

 

To adjust the DTIM period from CLI

 

To see current period:

iwpriv ath0 get_dtim_period

 

To input a new period:

iwpriv ath0 dtim_period 4
