Stupid question: does dd-wrt fw support mu-mimo for the routers that support it?

ie. r7500v2, r7800, ea8500, etc. Can't find the settings in the ui.

From what it says here:
https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/QCA_wireless_settings#Multi_User_Beamforming

It can be enabled/disabled. Although I have never seen that toggle available in my R7800 from my signature, maybe because I don't use Kong, not sure..

Hmm there certainly is Multi User Beamforming toggle but not MU-MIMO. A bit confused if they are indeed the same thing...

Why confused? I think it's pretty obvious what MU stands for Wink
