PlusNet Hub Two security

Due to personal circumstances, I've recently started running some test to verify the level of security of my PlusNet Hub Two, and the first one already failed: the hub (or perhaps the clients?) is vulnerable to deauth mdk4 attacks.

I read that the 802.11w protocol mitigates this kind of attacks, does the hub support it? I couldn't find any information from its admin dashboard.

Note: since all my devices are compatible with the 5GHz band, I switched off the 2.4GHz band: would having both 2.4 and 5GHz bands on mitigate against the deauth attacks? In general, is there any other setting that could prevent this sort of attacks?

 

Cheers

What tests have you run, using what software?

airgeddon (deauth mdk4 DoS) + kismet

kismet detected an attack was going on and I clearly saw a couple of devices (well, the only two connected at the time) being disconnected

Thanks.

If you wouldn't mind private messaging me some more detailed instructions e.g. where the deauth DoS originated, what you ran from where, and the steps you took, then I'll happily refer the question as necessary.
