Is it likely there could be a simple software upgrade to 802.11ax ? Would that need upgraded hardware ?

Does it speak WPA3 ?

The newer wireless driver is currently in testing:
https://help.mikrotik.com/docs/display/ROS/WifiWave2
  • WPA3 authentication and OWE (opportunistic wireless encryption)
  • 802.11w standard management frame protection
  • MU-MIMO and beamforming
  • 400Mb/s maximum data rate in the 2.4GHz band for IPQ4019 interfaces
Nothing 802.11ax as of yet.

Someone pointed out the limits of the SXT-LTE6 given it only has Fast Ethernet, Mikrotik were sort of hinting at new LTE products with Gigabit Ethernet.  I wonder if this was what they were meaning. Hope it's not the only one as I can't be the only person who wants to locate their LTE router to get the best signal, which doesn't really suit an all-in-one box.

The LHGG-LTE6 has a gigabit Ethernet:https://mikrotik.com/product/lhgg_lte6_kit
Sadly it's limit at present is the R11e-LTE6 which does not support band 32 which 3 UK is using extensively for carrier aggregation:

The IPQ4019 is a Wave-2 802.11ac chipset, so the above is the extent of what it can support.

WiFi 6/ 802.11ax cannot be added to ac hardware, it would like expecting 5G to be a software patch for 4G simply because it might use the same radio frequencies.

Oh, I agree, I'm quite sure Mikrotik will go WiFi 6e when it's finally out.

MikroTik has released firmware 11.06 for the Chateau 5G - RG502QEAAAR11A06M4G

This has fixed the carrier aggregation readings and now reports all the aggregated cells.
