Lower-channel selectable for Wifi 6 radio, and DFS


  • Is there a chance for making the Wifi 6 radio customizable to not just revert to auto or (now, thankfully) the high channel, but also Unii-1 ? I don't understand why I can specific the Wifi 5 radio to be lower channels (only), but the Wifi 6 to be upper exclusively?

    Also, have we given up on DFS at this point?


  • Also, have we given up on DFS at this point?

    Hi @Daniel-Osers - the SWX-U6PROR recently obtained DFS compliance with the FCC along with 160MHz channels, so UI seems to be getting the hang of it now

    Not sure if the firmware has dropped yet, but that means they finally will have a controller + AP combo with WPA3, 160MHz and DFS in the near future


  • @Daniel-Osers : Just in case... have you seen what 3.6.0 (beta) is attempting to bring? If not, here's a little preview:
