Thank you very much Gui, amazing work.

Sorry for the noob question, but is using the extra text lines from your diff enough or do I also need to do some terminal work on the C7s?

Do we have an ETA for native support inside LiMe without extra configs or workarounds?

Any other dual band AC models that support this natively that you know of?

Thank you

Nk
