2.4GHz WiFi channels selected for the mesh should be restricted to channels 1, 6, and 11. This has been the standard recommendation for a couple of decades, to minimize interference with neighbors. All my neighbors' eleven different access points adhere to this guidance, but now I cannot. My new Deco M5s are using Channel 3, which produces interference with Channels 1-7. If everyone uses the recommended 1, 6, and 11 channels, it allows neighbors to minimize their interference in the 2.4GHz band.

 

Can you either fix the algorithm of the Mesh to pick only one of those three recommended channels, or else provide a feature where I can practice good neighborly behavior and limit to the channels of my choice (in my case, 1, 6, and 11)?

We have forwarded the request to modify the wireless channels from previous users. However, there is no guarantee if that feature would be made available.
