Disable limitation channel on 5 GHz radio - EA8300

Hello,

my problem is that I use one 5GHz radio in client mode to other 5 GHz ap. In some cases the channel changes to other frequency that the EA8300 can't serve itself because it's limited by ART data.

Note: The first 5 GHz radio (IPQ4019) is limited to ch. 64 and below. The > second 5 GHz radio (QCA9888), is limited to ch. 100 and above. This is consistent > with OEM firmware and is a result of the ART data and the data in the OEM firmware's >cal data. This is perhaps due to RF design optimization and/or interoperation with > 2.4 GHz, such as the two, shared antennas.

Can I disable this limitation in one of the two 5 GHz radio? How?

Thanks

This is a hardware issue. In order for the two 5 Ghz radios to not jam each other during "triple band" operation, there are RF filters (a diplexer) dedicating one to the high side of the band and the other one to the low side.

You may be able to work around this with two 'wwan' networks one for each radio. If the AP moves the other one simply would not come up.
