Set wifi channel on mesh points

  • Per the subject, I'd like the ability to set which wifi channels each meshpoint runs on.

    The 2.4GHz band is crowded, and conflicts with other technologies such as Zigbee (eg Philips Hue smart lighting) happen easily. I am speaking from experience having just had to change the channel for a 60+device Hue deployment to avoid the channel my meshpoint selected.

    As an administrator of a wifi network I wish to precisely control what channels are in use from each device in the network, so I can ensure no conflicts with other technologies in the 2.4GHz range. I do not mind if this is tucked away behind advanced or even webui-only settings, but having a mesh point potentially and automatically change channel without notice nor control is unhelpful.
