Nighthawk RAX45

I have my Nighthawk RAX 45 set to channel 100. When I use Killer control panel, or Firestick, or my phone, I see the 5ghz channel on 36 (any wifi analyzer I use). I don't understand why I am seeing this conflict. Any ideas? (sorry, having trouble posting pictures.)..

Re: Nighthawk RAX45

100 is a DFS channel. If the router detects Radar interference it will auto-switch to a non DFS channel

Anything above channel 48 is a DFS channel. Most likely you won't stay for long on channel 120
