Hi, I have smart devices in my home which require WMM needs to be disabled and found it in wireless > Advanced in inactive state and enabled by default, So I couldn't disable it, so I need your assistance to activate WMM settings in my modem.
Hi @arunzone, WMM is required by devices to conform to the 802.11n specification that's why you can't disable it whilst running 802.11n or 802.11ac. The VR1600v doesn't have the option of running 802.11g only, if you were able to disable WMM it would also cripple the wireless rate back to 54mbps "G" speeds.
What sort of devices do you need to connect? The only option I can see is setting up an additional access point that just handles your smart devices albeit at a slower 802.11g speed.
The TP-Link VR1600V uses either 802.11N or 802.11AC for wireless mode, hence, the WMM can't be disabled. Although the modem still utilizes B and G, you can't switch it to either of those two alone.
