Network manager 802.11n mode?

Been digging but couldnt find an answer.
is it possible to set 802.11n hotspot using NetworkManager on Balena?
i only found , but our code already integrates with NetworkManager for all our wifi AP.


Hi, can you share the NM profile you created for this?
Also, does the wifi chipset support 5GHz?

Yes, chipset supports 5Ghz.
from Network manager documentation :
i couldnt figure out how can i force using 802.11n to get faster bitrates.

Hey Daniel, I have been looking around at various solutions but from the looks of it, it doesn’t seem that networkManager has a mechanism to enforce this on their Hotspot creation. BalenaOS just uses vanilla networkManager, so it might be worth asking on their mailing list if there are any clever ways of doing this otherwise it might only be possible to go the hostapd route as you linked to previously :confused:
