Hi,

 

I've got a really simple setup. One side of a canal is a BT business fibre router/firewall, a CPE510 in AP mode and a laptop for troubleshooting. The other side of the canal is a ASUS 4G-AC55U in 'media bridge' mode with a NetScreen firewall behind it then the user network behind that.

 

Originally the 'Channel/Frequency' was set to auto. The connection would work for a couple of days and then the ASUS couldnt find the SSID. I did a bit of research and a spectrum analysis and if I set the CPE510 to Channel/Frequency 104 / 5520MHz the connection works perfectly.

 

However for some reason (assuming DFS) the connection will drop and when I check the CPE510 the status page shows the Channel/Frequency is 136. For some reason the ASUS cant 'see' this channel. If i set the CPE510 back to 104 again it works perfectly.

 

Is there a way that the CPE510 can be forced to Channel/Frequency 104? Thanks.

 

 

Regards,

Paul.

If DFS is a legal requirement in your country, then no (in most countries, DFS is a legal requirement). Radars such as weather, military and commercial radars have priority and WiFi equipment is required to leave the channel as soon as other radars are detected.

 

Just replace the Asus by another CPE510 to solve this problem.

Thanks for the response. Is there a non-directional option?

Do you mean the antenna radiation pattern? No, there are no omnidirectional antennas for the CPE510, it has built-in directional antennas.
