Hello,

Could you please clarify the difference between the AP8163 model from the US and the one labeled as WR. All my APs are WR models and I have received a US model from the repairing dept. All of the APs seem to be working fine but I dont really know if the AP labeled as US will affect in some way the performance of the rest WR APs.

Thanks in advance.

Return it to the repair department, this is clearly an error on their part!

The allowed channel and power are different per country, and using a -US outside the US could be illegal in your country, similarly, using a -WR inside the US is also illegal.

I see. It will be sent back to the repair department as soon as possible.

Thank you Andrew.
