Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 1.2.8

It seems the M5 uses a wide 40MHz channel in 2.4Ghz mode instead of the recommended 20MHz. How can we change that?

Also would be nice if we could to change the wifi channels in advanced settings. Will this be added to a new FW soon?

2.4GHz channel width

Channel width controls how large of a "pipe" 'is available to transfer data. However, larger channels are more subject to interference and more likely to interfere with other devices. A 40MHz channel is sometimes called a wide channel, and a 20MHz channel is a narrow channel.

Set to: 20MHz

Use 20MHz channels in the 2.4GHz band. Using 40MHz channels in the 2.4GHz band can cause performance and reliability issues with your network, especially in the presence of other Wi-Fi networks and other 2.4GHz devices. A 40MHz channel might also cause interference and issues with other devices that use this band, such as Bluetooth devices, cordless phones, and neighboring Wi-Fi networks. Routers that don't support 40MHz channels in the 2.4GHz band do support 20MHz channels.

Hello, sorry to respond late.

 

Thank you for sharing your opinions and valued suggestions again. Apologies that manually choosing a channel for the Deco network is currently not available and this feature request has been forwarded to the developers for months and they are working on it, which will be available in the near future. It is suggested to keep an eye on the Deco app or on the TP-Link official website as we will update the information once there are any updates. 

 

Thanks a lot for your cooperation and understanding. Have a nice day.

Hi,

 

There is no option to change the channel and channel width manually for Deco, to get better performance, the Deco will choose the clear channel automatically.

 

For your information, it is planned to add this feature into Deco products, you can keep an eye on our official website to get more details. 

 

Good day.

Sure, please keep an eye on our official website or Deco app, any updates, we will post there. 

 

Meanwhile, I have  to say, it will take some time to release it. So please wait a while patiently. 

 

Good day.

@Kevin_Z 

Has the option been implemented yet? I can't find it in the settings?
