Seems like there is no way to assign a fixed channel to an AP or the entire network. For example, it seems - at least AFAIK - Sonos speakers would require all access points to use the same 2.4GHz channel, otherwise it is only possible to use the hidden, proprietary SonosNet. I can see this limitation won't possibly affect too many SMB customers, but considering Auba Instant On can be also a reasonable setup for home networks, it could be desirable.
@axthemax We are constantly working to enhance the solution. Existing and future customers are going to get enhanced features and software as part of future software updates. Customers will be able to update the software through the mobile app.
This version includes the following:
- Support for PPPoE connectivity in Wi-Fi router mode.
- Ability to view and block applications per network.
- Ability to view top used applications per client.
- Simplified configuration of RADIUS Network Access Attributes and NAS IP Address.
- Support for Open Guest network security.
- Ability to control Wi-Fi band selection (2.4GHz and 5GHz) for wireless networks.
- Ability to enable or disable legacy 802.11b rates.
- Radio channel selection improvements and ability to control channel selection and channel width.
- Ability to turn device LED off when operating under normal conditions.
- Ability to disable application visibility engine for performance sensitive deployments.
- Improved wireless range for over-the-air connections and better support of outdoor deployments.
- Wireless client roaming performance improvements.
- Other minor bug fixes and usability enhancements.
So let give it a try again (had swapped my Apple WiFi back in)
Are you sure sonos requires all APs to be on the same channel? If you're using sonosnet they do but that not a wifi networks, that's a mesh network and for a mesh to operate they all have to be on the same channel to hop from one to another until they find a wired path to the world. I would think when using wi-fi not sonosnet they would connect to what ever is strongest and since there is no hopping the channel doesn't matter.
