DFS Channels not being maintained RAX78


DFS Channels not being maintained RAX78

I want to use a DFS channel for the 2nd 5Ghz Channel, but the router constantly reverts back to 161 or something around there. I am assuming it is detecting radar and switching to a non-DFS channel, but it never switches back. Is there anyway to automatically switch back to DFS once the interference is gone?

Re: DFS Channels not being maintained RAX78

The DFS interference might not be gone. If you live near an airport, military base, or somewhere with weather stations, you might have pretty consistent dfs signals that is stopping it from switching back. It has to be clear for a set period of time before it can switch back and it might not be.
