    I'm very cerious if in the near future Tomato by shibby will include the support of beamforming and universal beamforing?

    For those who don't know what 802.11ac beamforming and universal beamforming then here's an explanation below:

    802.11ac Beamforming:
    The clien'ts WLAN adapter and router both support beamforming technology. This technology allows these devices to communicate the channel estimation and steering direction to each other to improve download and uplink speed. (it's also called [explicit beamforming].)

    For example: Asus RT-AC68U Router and ASUS PCE-AC68 802.11ac network adapter.

    Universal beamforming:
    For legacy wireless network adapter that do not support beamforming, the router estimates the channel and determines the steering direction to improve the download speed. (it's also called [implicit beamforming].)
