How to configure two APs in different Wireless Channels?

Mon Sep 02, 2019 4:39 pm

I have two RBwAPG-5HacT2HnD-US at home managed with CAPsMAN by a hEX router. I want each AP to use different channels.

I've tried creating 4 different configurations (2 for 2.4GHz and 2 for 5GHz) and configured provisioning rules for each Radio MAC in order to set different channels for each AP, but both APs are getting the same channel (corresponding to one of the configurations).

I think that I must be doing something wrong but I can't find how to solve it. I have also tried to le the configuration choose the channel automatically an it changes the channel to the less busy channel but both APs always get the same channel.

Following are some prints of the CAPsMAN configuration and provisioning settings.
[admin@MikroTik-Router] /caps-man configuration> print

I'm trying to configure different channels because I thing that for 2.4GHz both APs are

I will appreciate any help.
Thanks.
