Model: Deco X20  
Hardware Version: V20
Firmware Version: latest

When will you enable manual selection of wifi channels for users that wish to do so?

 

The "Network Optimization" feature is not performing as it should:

my Deco X20 units are constantly set to use the most heavily congested channels, while other unused channels are available (2.4GHz & 5.0 GHz)

We likely won't.  The Deco uses ART (adaptive Routing Technology).  This is similar to a tranditional router using Smart Connect.  The router will do periodic scans of a network enviorment and then choose the best channel for a band based on overall performance.  Same as it will choose the best band for a client device based on client capablities and bandwidth needs.  

 

Deco also uses your wireless bands to transmit its backhaul data between nodes so opening the networks to more customization is likely not something comming.
