wAP ac and CapsMan - how to use both radios with predefined channels?

Tue Jan 17, 2017 9:51 pm

Hello folks,

I am struggling with CapsMan and the wAP ac

If I omit the Channel setting in CapsMan Configuration, both radios on each wAP is employed, but with auto channel, and maximum channel width, i.e. 80MHz for 5GHz.
I would like to predefine which channels to use, and channel width.

If I try to define channels then "no supported bands" is shown for the 5GHz interfaces, probably because the 2.4GHz config is used also for the 5GHz radios.
What must I do to employ the 5GHz setting for the 5GHz radios???

This is my config:
/caps-man channel
add band=2ghz-b/g/n extension-channel=disabled frequency=2412 name=channel24-1 \
add band=5ghz-a/n/ac extension-channel=disabled frequency=5200 name=channel5-1 \

/caps-man configuration
add channel=channel24-1 country=norway datapath=datapath1 datapath.bridge=\
    bridge-CapsMan mode=ap name=cfg-Home security=security-CapsMan ssid=Home
add channel=channel5-1 country=norway datapath=datapath1 datapath.bridge=\
    bridge-CapsMan name=cfg-Home5G security=security-CapsMan ssid=Home

/caps-man provisioning
add action=create-dynamic-enabled hw-supported-modes=gn master-configuration=\
    cfg-Home name-format=identity
add action=create-dynamic-enabled hw-supported-modes=an,ac \
    master-configuration=cfg-Home5G name-format=identity
So how can I pre-define channels for the 2.4 and 5GHz radios??

How can I add more than one predefined channel to the CapsMan configuration???
The dropdown list does not allow for this (6.36.4)

Just provision your AP differently, each to use your specified channel(s).

Ok, so I'm not allowed to throw the same bucket of channels to all Caps and tell each of them to pick the clearest channel among them?
