Limit RB4011 5G Wifi channels to same ones on Audience (high band)

Thu Feb 13, 2020 12:35 pm

Hi,

I have an RB4011 (covering all 5GHz channels) and an Audience (supports only channel 100 and higher on the 4x4 5GHz Wifi radio)
Would like to use RB4011 as the AP, and Audience as the extender (station).
How do I limit the RB4011 5Ghz interface to use only those channels the Audience also supports?

Upfront thanks for your advice...

Enter the channels in the wireless interface setting

Something like this (my exemple is for a total different application .... controlling channels on a SXTsq ac5)
And then use this list in the interface setting "Scan list".

BPWL, thank you for the hint.

I would like to avoid to write down each and every channel combination. I hoped one could just limit the frequency range to
match on the RB4011 the audience, and keep all the rest same...?

Too fast reply. Had a second look at your post.
I was afraid to see that there was Ce specified and I had to do that for each channel (define if its control or ext. channel etc.
for 20/40/80).

So SCAN list is not for scanning but for AP working frequency?

I will give it a try!

I just learned from the wiki .. https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:W ... d_Channels

scan-list
Interface scan-list is used in multiple modes that either gather information for list of channels (like interactive scan command) or selects channel to work on (like any of station modes or AP modes performing DFS). Interface scan-list can be configured with comma-separated list of the following items:

default - default .11 channel list for given country and interface band and channel width;
numeric frequency ranges in MHz;
Advanced Channel, referred to by name;
Advanced Channel list, referred to by list name.
For example, to configure interface to scan 5180MHz, 5200MHz and 5220MHz at first using channel width 20MHz and then using channel width 10MHz, the following commands can be issued:

[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> channels add frequency=5180 width=20 band=5ghz-a list=20MHz-list
[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> channels add frequency=5200 width=20 band=5ghz-a list=20MHz-list
[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> channels add frequency=5220 width=20 band=5ghz-a list=20MHz-list
[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> channels add frequency=5180 width=10 band=5ghz-a list=10MHz-list
[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> channels add frequency=5200 width=10 band=5ghz-a list=10MHz-list
[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> channels add frequency=5220 width=10 band=5ghz-a list=10MHz-list
[admin@MikroTik] /interface wireless> set wlan1 scan-list=20MHz-list,10MHz-list


And tried to enter "numeric frequency ranges"

did not test it ... but it looks like what you are looking for
