AC1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router Model D6400
Manage Implicit Beamforming
The modem router supports beamforming to enhance the WiFi range and performance for
your WiFi devices. When you enable beamforming and connect to the WiFi network, the
modem router actively tracks your device and directs WiFi to your device, rather than just
blasting it out in all directions.
The modem router uses explicit and implicit beamforming to improve WiFi performance.
Explicit beamforming requires the devices to support beamforming. (Typically, 802.11ac
devices support beamforming.) Implicit beamforming means that the modem router supports
beamforming even with devices that do not support beamforming. The modem router
supports implicit beamforming for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz devices, which means that the
modem router can provide beamforming benefits of better range and performance for all WiFi
devices, even older 802.11a/b/g/n devices and not just the latest WiFi devices.
To enable implicit beamforming:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2. Type http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the user name and password for the modem router.
The user name is admin. The default password is password. The user name and
password are case-sensitive.
4. Click the OK button.
The BASIC Home page displays.
5. Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > Wireless Settings.
The Wireless Settings page displays.
6. Scroll down to the very bottom of the page.
7. Select the Enable Implicit BEAMFORMING check box.
8. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
