    What does "Auto" do in channel selection

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Can somebody confirm what setting "Auto" actually does in Channel settings for 2.4 & 5Ghz Wifi setup.

    My understanding is that it is supposed to detect and avoid conflicting channel selection.

    So if I have one EAP, it fins neighbour is using channel 6 for 2.4G and 48 for 5G, I assume "Auto" will select for my EAP an alternative channel, e.g. 1 or 11 for 2.4G and maybe 36 for 5G?

    But if I have 2 EAPs and both are set to "Auto", shouldn't it also choose each EAP's channels automatically to avoid them interfering with each other?

    I have 2 EAP245s set to Auto and see no evidence that it's choosing different channels for each.

    Yes, "Auto" setting selects the best channel automatically at the start of an EAP. On my EAP110, it works (more or less reliable).
