Re: Untagged VLAN Bridge CISCO

You should not use the switch chip function and a bridge on the same two ports, otherwise you will be creating a loop because you will have packets bridged twice (once via bridge, once via switch port master/slave function, so all sent frames would be duplicated).

Re: new priority from dscp high 3 bits

Maybe it is your use of set-priority=8? I have never seen that value used in set-priority before. I think it should be priority 0-7 for the software packet tag called 'priority'.
1-8 is the scale used for queue priorities, which is a totally different concept.

Although this doesn't help most people with this issue, the hAP AC (full, not lite) can do spectral scan w/AC. (Therefore it seems the lack of the function is something to do with the chip itself rather than whether it is AC or N)

The router will forward directly connected subnets even if you are not running a routing protocol.
