Chanalyzer & Wi-Spy DBx and 6GHz

What are Metageek’s plans for supporting the expanded 6GHz band on Chanalyzer and Wi-Spy DBx? Will it be a firmware upgrade on the Wi-Spy or a new dongle?

Hey @geek.dad!

While the firmware on the Wi-Spy DBx is upgradeable, unfortunately getting 6 GHz support would require significant hardware changes. It’s not possible for us to enable 5 GHz support with a firmware upgrade.

We are keeping a very, very close eye on the 6 GHz situation. I don’t have any announcements to make today, but stay tuned. :smiley:

Thanks Joel!

Looking forward to seeing what’s coming down the road.
