This may be a newbie question. Not a problem as far as I can tell just something that I wasn't expecting.
I've installed the latest 23.05-SNAPSHOT (
r23222-02a37dee1b) on a Netgear WAX206. The 5GHz radio is configured for channel 120:
config wifi-device 'radio1' option type 'mac80211' option path '1a143000.pcie/pci0000:00/0000:00:00.0/0000:01:00.0' option channel '120' option band '5g' option htmode 'HE40' option cell_density '0' option country 'US' option txpower '10'
and is running a single, AP, network, which however (as of the latest reboot anyway) landed on channel 116:
# iwinfo ... wl1-ap0 ESSID: "..." Access Point: nn:nn:nn:nn:nn:nn Mode: Master Channel: 116 (5.580 GHz) HT Mode: HE40 Center Channel 1: 118 2: unknown Tx-Power: 10 dBm Link Quality: 57/70 Signal: -53 dBm Noise: unknown Bit Rate: 487.4 MBit/s Encryption: WPA3 SAE (CCMP) Type: nl80211 HW Mode(s): 802.11ac/ax/n Hardware: 14C3:7915 14C3:7915 [MediaTek MT7915E] TX power offset: none Frequency offset: none Supports VAPs: yes PHY name: wl1
Previously, still on the 23.05 code (previous 23.05 snapshot imagebuilder) the AP was landing on 120 exactly. Both then and now the AP works normally, this just made me curious.
Is this normal, maybe a side effect of radar detection?
