i have to wonder why it says "AC" in the model description if it doesn't support wifi... are you saying i couldn't connect to a litebeam AC if i had an AC card in my laptop?
are LiteBeam ac compatible with N?
in other words, can i connect to a LBE-5AC-16-120 with a Loco M5?

airMAX AC radios are designed from the ground up for outdoor wireless networks. They take advantage of the higher modulations rates in 802.11ac, but use our airMAX AC protocol for improved outdoor performance and scalability.
We do support airMAX AC APs -> airMAX M Stations in the airOS 8 and airOS 6 betas.
Hope that helps!

thank you (i had to switch to my account with beta on it)
i went ahead and put 8 on the litebeam AC and 6 on the loco M5, and the M5 can see the AC network on the survey, but it's not associating...
are there any other settings i need to change to make this work?

You'll also need to put the AC AP into Mixed mode+.
If you are still having trouble, please post the Wireless tab from both. Please keep in mind that backwards compatibility is still a work in progress and there are still a few bugs. New betas are expected in the next few days.

Hi James, Could you help me to tell me if UAP‑AC‑HD is compatible with Airmax Ac? I mean with LiteBeam AC 5GHZ
UAP-AC-HD is Wi-Fi AC and not compatible with AirMax-AC. The LiteBeam will neither see or connect to the UAP.
