We currently have 4 new wAP ac devices running in different locations managed by CAPsMAN on a CCR1036 Router.
After many tests and a lot of trouble I came to the conclusion that the wAP ac's may have huge problems on the 2.4ghz module due to the hardware design of their internal antennas.
First I enabled the CAPsMAN auto frequency selection for all 4 devices (only 2.4ghz module is enabled, 5ghz is not used so far). But always when a CAP was sending in a certain channel, it was not possible to connect to its Wifi. So, I thought, this has something to to with the frequency selection of CAPsMAN. I tried to disable extention channels, only use chain 0 ore much other things. Nothing helps!!!
When I disable CAPsMAN on the wAP's interface and do a frequency usage scan, it showed that frequencies from 2427 to 2447 are heavy used? So, I had another device at the same location (BaseBox 2) and did the same scan there... and, how I expected, same frequencies which are heavily used on the wAP ac seem to be totally unused on the BaseBox2!!!
So, I guess there is eather a big Software bug in the wAP ac or a big hardware design issue!!!
Can someone pleas try to reproduce this effect? I hope I am not the only one with this problems
At the moment all wAP ac's are set manually to frequency 2452 and are working fine there. But we need the auto frequency selection working on all channels!!
Thanks for help
